my wedding is coming up fast and i need to buy my accessories. I originally liked the idea of a birdcage veil but i just feel like the typical bridal veils are so much more weddingy, and id really like to wear one. My dress is SUPER beaded, so the veil is a plain cut edge veil, but id probably order a drop veil rather than a gathered veil, as i dont like the poof that the comb on the gathered ones give – i love the simplicity of the single layer, especially it being continuous around the head in the drop veils. Im planning to wear a headband as shown and my hair in a similar style, and i will be removing the veil after the ceremony/photos.
My concern is the veil in general, does it go? Is it too much? is the length ok?? Feel free to post any suggestions/photos!
(im sorry these photos wont resize!)
PS i know i need to lose some weight from the gut and the arms/back as it doesnt fit properly yet. 🙁

@Rachael1287: Your gown is stunning!!
I would choose for you what I chose for myself and what many other brides have chosen — a single layer (so you can still see all of the detail on the dress), raw-edged (just like the edges of the one you are wearing in the photos), cathedral-length (about 120″ long — could be slightly shorter) veil. I added a separate blusher to mine, and, after the ceremony, I only wore the cathedral-length veil bustled for the reception.

I’m sorry … I’m going to be totally honest and say that I’m not a fan of this veil with your dress. Your dress is absolutely gorgeous by the way!
The raw edge veil just looks … unfinished? Your dress has a lot of bling so going with a simple veil is definitely in order but maybe going with a veil that has softer edges would look best.

@Rachael1287: I love the veil with your dress. Just a word of advice – my dress was really beaded as well and I found that my veil – it was the shortest i could find (compromise with my mom because I didnt want to wear one) kept getting snagged on my dress.

@Rachael1287: I don’t like it. I think the edge looks harsh against your dress and looks kind of cheap. On the other hand, your dress is absolutely stunning, I would have killed to wear a dress like that!! Your figure looks stunning in it, you do not need to lose any weight!! I think you can find a more suitable veil!

@xdaydreams05x: i agree. The raw edge looks unfinshed with your GORGEOUS dress. Seriously, it’s amazing and the kind of thing that totally makes me second guess my own pick. You look incredible in it.
I agree with PP on maybe doing a single layer but with a little bit or beading on the edge so it looks more finished.

I love the length of the veil! But I think one with a pencil edge would give an overall more polished look.

I agree, it looks too harsh against your dress. I dont know anything about them though, so I cant give you any suggestions.

@Brielle: Thanks! You said cathedral length, dont you think this would cover up the details on the train? This is why i was worried about the length lol!

@krstino1012: Yeah i have found this, but only with some veils? I dont know whether its different depending on the size of the holes in the tulle/maybe the softness? :-/ Was it a *big* problem or just an annoyance? Im going to be taking the veil off after the photos so ill only be wearing it for a few hours.
