I don’t have a suggestion but I’m following as I’d like to know for myself as well.

Could you post a picture of the dress or give us the designer and style number of it? It’s kind of hard to suggest anything without knowing how it looks.

I had an alencon trumpet dress and chose a simple cathedral raw edge veil. Ceremony was outside so I didn’t want or need the extra fancy of a lace trimmed veil (though they are lovely!) What kind of wedding are you having?

I wore a laced trim, silk cathedral veil. It was my something old/something borrowed family heirloom that I had wanted to wear since my Great Aunt showed it to me.  It didn’t really matter what my dress looked like, that thing was getting pinned to my hair! To make it work, I had to fold it in half so that it would be more of an ankle/chapel (I’m 5’5 and wore flats), hence why you see the two layers. Most of the time though you could barely see the lace but it did give hints of texture here and there.

I was not going to wear a veil, but then ended up using a part of my moms (hers was super long) after cleaning it. I had an iaaue with choosing the length, if I had gone shorter, the lace trim would have been up in my face, so something to think about as well as length.

My veil was my favorite part of my look. My Mother-In-Law made it using the lace from my great-grandmother’s veil. My great-grandmother acquired the lace in Germany, and the previous owners had used it in their weddings for another 3-4 generations. We estimated that it’s from at least the 1850’s…. making it now a priceless heirloom that I hope to pass down!

My dress was beaded lace, my veil was borrowed from a friend, it was fingertip length with a single line of bugle beads on the edge. I had been thinking that a lace veil would distract from the dress, so it worked out well 🙂

A friend gave me hers to use & have. I thought about adding some lace to it but then I realized I liked how simple it is so the dress could shine.

I went with embroidered trim. I was worried it would be “too much” with a lace dress but I loved the overall effect.
