I feel im swamped in this veil but want a long veil just because I can :p and thought might as well, now my mother and mother inlaw both think the veil is perfect and cant understand why i want to make it not so wide , I have that long veil in the picture but im wanting to cut it in half or so to make it skinner , am I crazy or does it not suit me ???
….. also the dress allure 8764 will be shorter and I have a merry modes trumpet slip and just got the extender on order as I had my dress fitting today and it still needed more proof to create a mermaid bottom … any thoughts ?? x

I see a peek-a-boo of an open back hiding from behind the veil you’re wearing in the photo. Honestly, a dress with a feature like that deserves to be shown off, in my opinion!
Ultimately, though, it’s your decision. Do what YOU feel best in! 😀

Is it a cathedral veil with blusher? I can’t really tell.
If so perhaps JUST a single layer cathedral veil would better. It would certainly allow your guests a better look at the back of your gorgeous dress.

I love your dress.. sigh, everytime I see this dress, I’m like “wow”.
The veil is acceptable but I do think it’s such a waste to hide the back. Birdcage or veil-less would probably be best but might not be your style. If not, what you have on is totally fine (maybe get one with less volume).

I personally think the veil is a little long for that dress, but not too wide. And you still look gorgeous so don;t worry!

I would agree that I’d love to see the back of your dress! Can you lose a layer on the veil?

I think its too much veil too. I’d either go with a single layer so its more sheer and also pick one in a shorter length. I’m not a fan of having the veil extend so much farther than the train.
Go with what YOU want…you have to wear it!

I think a long veil is nice maybe more sheer, I wore a cathedral length for the ceremony and then took it off for the reception.

I think the blusher tier and the gathering make the veil too solid for your delicate dress. I think a single tier with less width and gathering would suit your dress better because it would be much more sheer so everyone can admire the keyhole in your dress.

@simpleandchic: I like this option way better. The sheerness of it makes it look like a veil. In My Humble Opinion the author’s veil looks more like a lot of gathered fabric, and I’m not getting that “veil” look. And the back of your dress is awesome-show it off too!

@Mrs.Elivs: Thanks, you want it to be like your almost not wearing it (if that makes sense)

Hello Ladies, thanks for your insights
I would tag your names but I dont know how lol
simpleandchic I just love the look you have created , its a veil but its so sheer you can see every detail on the dress , is it held on or just drapped over ?? .. love it
I have taken all your thoughts onboard and I agree, show off keyhole design in back, veil bit to long for dress and only have one layer not have the blusher, here comes the scissors lol
thanks heaps x
