    I like the idea of finger tip length. Beautiful veil!

    Hey, me again, I personally wouldnt do lace, maybe a ribbon edge or pencil edge, I think a lace edge might compete with the lace on your dress, it’s a very beautiful dress and the shape is perfect for you figure, but I would go with something simpler in just about any length but shoulder, waltz or chapel, but if you really love the lace edge go for it! It’s not as though it looks bad I think it’s fine I just think simple would look nicer on pictures

    Actually after having a second look, I think finger tip length would be my fave

    @Silver Plum Fairy:  I agree, your dress is beautiful and the lace is a feature.

    I am not really keen on the veil you have selected as the lace just ends at the model’s wrist.  Looks like they have run out of lace, sorry.

    With such a beautiful dress, I would go with a raw edge or pencil edge if you want to define the veil, and it is really calling for a cathedral length, if not I would go with fingertip.

    Are you wearing a sash or belt?

    You look stunning in the dress.

    @Silver Plum Fairy:  No need for confusion.  Take your dress to a bridal shop and try on a few veils to see what you like.

    Alternatively, go to your cheapest fabric shop and buy some tulle – the cheap variety and just have your mum or bridesmaids hold it up for you while you look in the mirror.

    With the blingy sash and all that beautiful lace on the dress, you need to think what you like best.

    @Silver Plum Fairy:  Much better.  Remember you have paid a lot of money for the dress, so pick a veil that has the same level of quality or it will stand out – negatively.

    This new veil really looks great.  Also a little bit of bling on your hair, just like in the photo, will match the bling on your waist.
