I think a cathedral length veil would be lovely! I think you’ll still be able to see the back of the dress even w/ the veil bc you can see through the veil. Also- by the time your reception rolls around you wont have the veil on any longer and your guests will get close ups of your dress then. As for the bra- try specialty bra places they have ones that have deep dips in the back. Good luck! btw, your gown is gorgeous!

GORGEOUS!!! I agree, you can totally wear the cathedral veil and still show off the back of your dress at the reception! I would try Victoria’s Secret for the bra…it’s always worked for me!

Wow, beautiful dress! May I ask what brand that is/where you got it!? I think a cathedral veil would look great with that dress!

I would definitely go with a cathedral veil! If you go with a simple veil I don’t think it would take away from the back of the dress!

No idea about the bra, but i think a cathedral would look awesome.  The dress is SPECTACULAR by the way.

If you decide you’d like to have the back showing you could go with a shorter veil or you could just buy a single layered cathedral that is very transparent.  Also keep in mind that you wont have the veil on for the reception (presumably).

i think it would be lovely.  veils are translucent enough, it wouldn’t block the detailing, and besides, you probably will only have the veil on for ceremony and pictures anyway =D

Wow your dress is beautiful and you could do no wrong with whatever type of veil you choose to wear. As far as the bra situation goes I think if i were you I would go with these http://www.nubra.net/. Its a backless bra that just sticks on, I have never used it myself but i know someone who has that said it worked great.

Wow, that is one fantastic gown. Yes, you can of course wear a catherdral veil, it will even give you more of a dramatic effect.

Thats the Jim Hjelm model, so I think that must be who made the dress. Lucky girl! Those dresses are a fortune– wish I could have one. It’s exquisite.

As long as the cathedral veil is only 1 layer of tulle it should show the back of the dress just fine.


Also, have you tried the sticky bras?  They are more supportive than you would expect.  I was even surprised by how comfortable they were.  Another option is a long slip with a bra undergarment.  I saw it on herroom.com and it was specifically for backless dresses.
