Ok, so as you all probably know, veils are an arm, a leg, and a few fingers as far as price goes. So I decided to have my veil custom made for $95 instead of the $200+ they charge at bridal shops and get it how I wanted it. I love the veil but not sure if it will go with my dress as far as color goes. The actual veil is ivory, but the embroidery is almost a “tan-ish” color to me? Do you think it will clash with my dress too much?
Its hand embroidered with Swarovski crystal beads and I added the Swarovsk element rhinestones today.
Our ceremony will be outside and this is what it looks like outside….
Then my dress:
I just don’t want it to look brown against my dress :o/. My dress is Ivory and the lady that made my veil said she couldn’t find Ivory thread so she used white and dyed the thread Ivory, but I think it’s like a tan color almost. :o/. What do you bees think? Thanks once again for all your help!

hmm can you put it acutally next to the dress? Its hard to tell.
I think its okay, if they are close but not perfect!

it’s hard to tell. the embroidery looks light in some pictures and really dark in others.

she couldn’t find ivory thread? weird….
anyway, i agree that in some pics it looks dark and in others it looks light… if there’s a way to put it next to the dress, that would really help with your decision, i think…
in my mind, my dress is super-light-ivory (almost white) because that’s the way it looks in pictures; but in reality, it’s “normal” ivory, so the sash i had for it freaked me out because it looked “yellow” until i put it up to the dress and wha-laa!!! it was exactly the right color… it morphed to the “white” before my eyes! 🙂
so with all that said, it does look a little “tan” in the natural light pictures, i agree… however, there’s no way to see how “off” (or perfect!) it is with your dress until they’re together! 🙂
it’s a gorgeous veil, by the way! she really did an excellent job with the craftsmanship of it! 🙂 and i love the little crystals you put on there!

When I bought my sash, I wasn’t sure that it would match so I just took it into the salon and asked to see the dress that I tried on and held it up agaisnt it. You could do the same to be sure.

I agree that it is hard to tell from pictures, but I would think that it will go just fine. The veil is so unique and pretty, and your dress looks great on you too! I don’t think you need to worry!

Personally I like the idea of it not being the same shade, then you don’t lose the detail.

@JJsGirl_09: That’s too bad! Maybe if you don’t want to keep it, try selling it off and see if you can get another one that suits the dress better?
