I really can’t decide if having a beaded veil would be “too much” with my dress. Either way it would be fingertip length. I tried on several at the bridal salon but the lighting is so weird in there and now I have blingy earrings. I’ll post my dress (for probably the millionth time) and earrings below.
Veil 1? No beading.
Veil 2? Beaded edge

Since the beading to which you are referring is on the EDGE of the veil, I recommend no beading. The placement of that particular beading would highlight the perimeter of your veil and will result in a defined line where it intersects your body and gown. I know you did not list this as an option, but I am a huge fan of a sheer, raw edge, cathedral-length veil.
ETA: By the way, your gown and earrings are beautiful!

@Brielle: Thank you so much for your input. I hadn’t even thought of that! Most of the veils I tried on with beading on the edge were shorter.

@itshouldsnow: Just to give you an example of why I love a cathedral length veil, I am posting a couple of my pics:
My veil had Swarovski crystals on it, but they were not along the edge, so they added some sparkle, but they did not create a defined line.

Definitely the raw edge! The beading makes the veil look too solid for your delicate dress!

I think the no beading compliments your dress and earrings better than the beaded one 🙂

No beading. It takes away from your beautiful dress!

I actually really prefer the beaded veil. I feel like it’s delicate enough to add some sparkle without drawing any negative attention to anything. It seems that I’m in the minority though, haha! Good luck with whatever you decide on. 🙂

Beaded! Love it,! Adds a bit of sparkle, looks more expensive, raw edge is boring
