I’m planning to do the same (down to the cathedral length with lace on the end).  I don’t think that they have to match, but they need to complement one another.  If the lace was all over (mantilla) then I feel like I’d need for them to match exactly. 

Where are you buying your fabric and lace?

Nope! Nobody will notice! Plus there are about a thousand kinds of lace often used for wedding dresses and about 10 for veils… I think very very rarely are they matching. It will never ever be noticed.

My mom and I are actually making my cathedral veil and we went through the same thing. Wasn’t about to pay $550 for the one in the bridal salon, but I really loved the style. The closest I could find on Etsy was $300 and that was still expensive, so we ordered the lace appliques on Etsy, bought tulle from JoAnn’s and went to work!

We tried to match the style of the lace, and by that, I mean that the lace on my dress has iridescent sequins and beading, so I tried to find something similar. The lace on my dress is also all over so it would be more apparent if it mismatched greatly. I think in your situation you could get away with mismatched lace no problem.

kerrihead:  thanks! It was honestly as easy as pinning on the lace, and using clear thread to sew it on. We still have to trim the tulle at the bottom and add the comb, but it’s far easier than it looks. We spent $40 total in supplies.

mshoneybeespgbuzz:  Mine is similar but it doesn’t match exactly. No big deal as long as it is similar and compliments the dress
