Please help. I bought the 2012 Pronovias Petunia dress and want to wear a veil but don’e know what legnth or style would look best since the dress has the double silouette
I still cant decide on how to wear my hair either if you have any input. on how it should be worn with this dress.
I’m not nearly as thin as this model and the dress definitely shows me off as curvy if that helps.

I tried this dress on and it’s so stunning…I can’t imagine it needs an ornate viel of any kind but it’s so cathedral worthy…that I probably would have considered a plain cathedral legth viel for this one..without a blusher and I probably wouldn’t have gone for too many layers/tiers…probably a single or double at most.
I think you should try on all styles though. When I finally decided on a dress I got tunnel vision on viels, I thought only a fingertip length would do because that’s what they put on you once you start trying on dresses….but then I changed my mind later and tried some chapen legth and cathedral lenght and I felt way more formal and elegant in those.
Try them all!!

Hello… we are Petunia twins, and very close to being wedding date twins!! 🙂 MIne is on the 12th oct!!
I have been thinking about what veil to wear too, but my dress doesn’t arrive until aug, so have now considered maybe just a hair piece instead.
I did try a couple of veils, but I didn’t want it to cover the beautiful train detail of the dress, but I guess a simple single layer one will prob sit nicely.
I always loved the idea of a cathedral veil, as I find them so romantic, but when I did put it on I just felt I was too covered by layers so decided it wans’t the right one for me! 🙂
Have you got any photos of you in the dress with different veils? LOve love to see some photos, the wait is driving me crazy!! I haven’t got any photos from when I ordered it, so just have to wish the next 2months away so I can finally try it on again!
Happy planning, let me know what you go for in the end 🙂

Beautiful! I think you should do a chapel/cathedral simple veil with this gown.

@hawaii13: I did not take photos in the veils but I did recently go for my first fitting and tried on many different veils. My mom obsessed that I wear one. The single layer elbow legnth was ok, but I think this dress stands alone with no veil beautifully and a headpiece alone would be perfect. The cathedral veil totally drowned me in fabric.
I forgot to take photos in the veils and so I only have my photos from the day I tried on the sample. I’m still convinced this is the dress but the accessories are really difficult for me.
If you want I can send you those photos. Let me know!
