I think the mantilla veil will look amazing with that dress! 

If blings not your thing, dont do the bling… Some people are pretty obnoxious about needing their bling… just ignore them! I love your lace!

I think it would look great with that dress. I don’t like the mantilla with blingy dresses but with yours it would look fantastic as would one coming down the back.

I think you should get the veil you want because I think it would match beautifully!

Your dress is so pretty on you! The lace around the face might compete with the neckline of your dress, but that doesn’t mean you give up your dream of that style of veil. You can wear a veil that has the lace around the bottom, beaded lace, or a caplet style that has just a touch of lace. Here are a few ideas! 

Best of luck!

i would do the mantilla for the ceremony, no blingy belt – and then take the veil off and add the blingy belt for the dancing/party – nice way to switch up your look and everyone’s happy 🙂

I would absolutely recommend the mantilla!!!! Your dress hasn’t got that much lace (wouldn’t be too much!!) and I am sure it would look absolutely gorgeous with a lace mantilla. I would consider a bling veil tacky and a sash might ruin the beautiful line of your dress.. Go for what you have envisioned, it’s your  Wedding and day to shine

I agree with the other bees – the mantilla veil would probably look great! You won’t be blingy but if that isn’t your style anyway than who cares haha 🙂 The look you’re describing reminds me of Grace Kelly or Kate Middelton…very classy and classic, and never out of style!

I think the touches of lace in different parts of the dress help with not looking too simple. I agree with the bees that the veil will look lovely with your dress. You look amazing and the dress is very dreamy 🙂

I plan on wearing a mantilla with my lace dress as well.  I also rejected the idea of a sparkly belt because I felt that it would take away from the beauty of my dress.  Don’t feel like you need “bling” if you don’t like it.  You’re a bride, not a disco ball. :p
