Sounds like a beautiful dress! I’m wearing a lace ballgown and my veil has a lace trim to it – I’ve put some pictures below to show you what I’ve got 🙂

I think you could get away with more lace than this on the veil, but it happened to be what I fell in love with!

I would suggest trying on some veils with your dress and seeing how you feel.  I’ve seen pictures on pinterest of people wearing lace dresses with lace veils that look amazing!  What does your dress look like? 🙂

I would just be afraid of the lace not matching. My dress has lace on it too and it was too stressfull to find a veil with lace that matched the lace pattern on the dress. So I ended up going with a plain veil.

I always say the more lace and sparkle, the better!

I had the same dilemma. I decided to go cathedral with beaded lace appliques, bc that’s what I tried on at the bridal salon with the dress and I loved it, except it was $550! My mom and I bought lace appliques that matched my dress fairly well (same color, similar pattern, same color beading) and started making my veil, supplies cost around $40. So far we have just sewn on the appliques, we still have to cut the tulle to be round on the bottom and attach the comb though. I LOVE the applique look though, not too much lace, and I like that the lace starts around the hip. Sometimes I find lace to be a little crowding when it’s right by your face on the veil, depending on the dress.

Here’s my dress and the bridal salon veil:

Here’s the one we’ve made so far:

lizluxe:  I have a very similar dress as you, and I’m also trying to figure out my veil. Here’s a picture of my dress with the model and the veil they paired with it, as well as some other options that I’ve been thinking about.  I didn’t really think about it too much until now, but I guess matching the lace to the dress would be difficult unless you buy one that Pronovias makes.

My dress – Pronovias San Patrick Sabana

Other veils I like with somewhat similar dress profiles

I wore an all lace a-line dress with a cathedral veil with lace edging. The veil is a family heirloom so there was no way the lace would match the dress I bought. It actually looked fine, I don’t think anyone even noticed it was mismatched. I find lace veils to provide a softer, romantic look and the non edge ones to be more contemporary. It’s all about the look your going for so try on a few and have a friend take pictures so you have an idea of what your photos would look like with each!

Mine was the matching veil to the dress. If anything, I wished the veil would have been longer.

So this is where all the Pronovias brides have been hanging out!

I debated long and hard as to whether a lace veil would overpower my dress, but I came to the conclusion, if not now, when? When else would I get to go (nearly) to the point of overboard with lace? So I ordered a fingertip beaded lace mantilla from an etsy shop.

Insofar as matching the lace on my dress – it’s not perfect, but it’s very, very close. Like, so close that you wouldn’t be able to tell it wasn’t the same lace unless you literally laid one on top of the other and looked for differences in the patterns. I think the most important thing with trying to match Pronovias lace is to not cheap out. Either go custom (or DIY), or high-end.
