- Wedding: August 2019
Looking for advice! My dress is all lace/tulle. I don’t really have any sparkle on it, but I’m also not a super sparkly person (though I do love some sparkle!). I want to feel glamorous but also like the soft romantic look of lace, but my wedding party is all about the sparkle haha.
When shopping for a wedding dress, I tried on a fingertip length veil with crystal edging which I loved. But after seeing photos from another wedding, I love how they used her chapel length veil in the photos! This is what I’m talking about:
Below is my dress, and the veil I tried on (sorry for the poor cell phone image quality). I also have a skinny sparkly belt on it in the photo below, which does not come with the dress and I don’t think I’m including.
I was thinking about getting two veils (aka trying to make them to do it on the cheap), and wearing the long one for photos and the short one for the ceremony (ridiculous, I know). My concern is, will a long veil work with the bottom of my dress? I’m worried my dress won’t pool the same way, and with the lace turning into tulle at the bottom, a long veil might look funny. But I love all the stuff you can do in photos with long veils!
Do you think I should go with the short veil, long veil, or both?
Bonus question! Should I wear a belt or no belt? I’m leaning toward no belt right now, but opinions welcome : )
Thank you all in advance!
