My wedding dress is a mermaid dress, with asymmetrical pleats and a asymmetrical train:
At the moment, I haven’t made up my mind about wearing a veil. I’m wondering: does it look weird to wear a symmetrical veil with an asymmetrical dress? Is it ‘balanced ‘enough’?? Maybe it doesn’t matter at all?
Maybe it’s better to skip the veil and just wear a flower in my hair?
I would appreciate your advice. Also, pictures of real brides in an asymmetric dress with veil are very welcome!
Thanks in advance!

My dress isn’t symmetrical, and I’m wearing a symmetrical veil. No pictures, but I’ve tried them on together and they look fine. It’s like wearing an asymmetrical dress in front of a symmetrical wall – it just highlights the beauty of the dress, but doesn’t look off-balance.

My dress isn’t symmetrical, but my veil is. I loved the look together and honestly would not have even thought to look for a non-symmetrical veil. 😛

Not my real veil-just the store sample to give me an idea of how it would look. But I think it looks totally natural (between the asymmetry and symmetry, that is).

I thought mine looked okay…all pics by Jennifer G. Mills Photography. If you look close you can see that the pleating in the middle is angled… Ignore the blue-ish-ness of my veil in the first pic…

Alot of dresses arent symmetrical but they still look fine with any regular veil.

i think you would be fine with a symetrical veil with that dress – def go with a veil if you like them – its so bridal and really completes the look 🙂

Thanks ladies for all your (beautiful) pictures and helpful advice.
Looks like I’m stressing about something unimportant, Since YOU all look great in your dress/veil combo, I think I should ddefinitely give it a try!
