Would it be possible for you to go to either the same salon, or a new one, and just try on their sample?  If so, you could slip into your dress (though not actually YOURS) and start trying on veils.  Or… maybe a very, very similar one?  Ultimately, I think the best bet is to try on veils with your same dress.  I don’t know of any websites that offer returns, but maybe you could find one, order a few, and do a little fashion show at home?  Good luck!

I started thinking about this same problem this past weekend.  I bought my dress at Filenes basement and never tried a veil with it.  I’m just going to take a shot in the dark and order a beaded edge 1 tier elbow length off ebay.  It seems like the ‘safest’ veil choice.  It’s only $22, so if I hate it, its not too much of a waste.

I took a small piece of fabric removed from my dress during alterations (note, dresses often come with a swatch sewn inside) when I went and purchased the fabric for my veil.

hmm you definitely need to try them on with your dress, if the store has a sample I would use it, or go the online route with a good return policy! I wouldn’t worry about shipping, I mean if you buy the veil in a bridal salon (like I did 🙁  ) you will pay 10xs more!
