    I vote veil three! Not sure if you’ll have that lacy-flower stuff on it, but if you do I think it will look lovely with the dress. Also, I actually love veils that cover the shoulders! I tried on a veil today the covered my shoulders and it was just so perfect.

    • I ADORE the first hair/veil look you posted! Everything, down to the flowers and the curled hair looks like what you described.

    • Veil weights are also a great idea if you want a plain veil (they’re really subtle and will keep your veil from blowing away).
    • I like the first veil a lot (I think the small detailing really compliments your amazing dress), BUT the doubled-up veil might be too opaque. The second veil is pretty blah (shapewise). The third veil would be WAY too busy and would detract from your dress (but I also adore the covered-shoulders look). 
    • I think the veil in the photo I reposted is perfect (plain + elbow length + covered shoulders).

    I think it would look lovely with a thin, plain edge, chapel or cathedral length veil.  My reasoning is this…with the fingertip length, the edge of the veil will hit at a weird spot and could interupt the line of sight down the dress.  Option 3 will be too much going on around your face/shoulders with all the shoulder detail of the dress and your hair being part down.  I just think that one long thin piece will flow nicely with that gorgeous dress and you’ll be able to appreciate the details of the dress through it!

    I love veil two. The back on your dress is stunning, and I think you need something that is going to cover all of the open back (so it isn’t weirdly half covered or anything) while being thin enough to see the detailing. Have you considered a chapel length? Not as uncomfortable as a cathedral, but I love how they look with sheer fabric at the bottom of a dress!

    @MatrixDonna:  If you’re worried about all of that, then a longer veil (chapel) might give you the best of both worlds (less coverage + shoulders covered). Like a mantilla vei without the lace edging:

    @MatrixDonna:  I agree with a previous poster in that I wouldn’t wear anything to heavy, otherwise you cover up the beautiful detailing on the back of your gown. I choose veil 2, I think it will be the most flattering with the your dress. I think a thin chapel or cathedral length veil, like the second one but longer, would compliment the dress, as well. As far as hair goes, I would definitely wear it up to showcase the beautiful detailing on the dress. Beautiful dress..

    @MatrixDonna:  Yes!  That’s exactly what I was talking about!  I was thinking that the ribbon edged fingertip veil (like the one you have pictured) would cause a broken line of sight.  If you do a plain edge fingertip veil that would be fine.  Although, I must admit that I have a huge soft spot for the chapel or cathedral length veils, especially with dresses that have such a nice flowy skirt like yours!

    @MatrixDonna:  Haha you don’t usually have too much trouble turning! Your MOH will tug it straight behind you when you get to the end of the aisle so that when you do the recession you can just turn and go. But that is only with a super long cathedral train, which isn’t in the running ๐Ÿ™‚ I think one that ends right at your train would look nice! And plus you could only wear it for the ceremony, so your train will be super visible the rest of the night. I just think long tulle looks so good with the bottoms of dresses like yours.

    @MatrixDonna:  My dress is sleeveless. I guess I didn’t think about the sleeves!!!!! On second thought, maybe some of these other posters are correct about it being too much. ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck on your veil hunt!

    I voted for #2 as I feel like it would be gorgeous with it’s simplicity and not take away from the incredible detailing the back of your dress has
