I have the same issue :((( my gorgeous dress in which I really love is off white but my veil is white. And it looks silly, my mom says. I’m going to try the dress on and see how it’ll look with the veil (ordered both online)….either get a whole new dress to match the white (mom is set on having me wear white very serious for her haha) or change the veil. I’m thinking the veil. But seeing a whole new set of dresses out there….it won’t hurt to try on some others ๐Ÿ˜€ 

But I feel you bee….

I think the two items should coordinate. They should work well together. Do you have pictures?

I think that an ivory headpiece with a coloured dress would definitely look better than an ivory headpiece with a white dress. In My Humble Opinion, the second option is a fashion faux pas ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s tough to know though without a photo!

Perhaps if it doesn’t match completely, maybe you could incorporate some blue into the veil? Like make the flower stamens blue or add some blue stones in/on the flowers?  I think that may help with coordinating the two better…Good luck!

I think if you dyed that to match your dress you would risk looking like you’re wearing a costume, if the colour of your dress is blue, purple, pink, or a similar colour… If you found a lovely dress in a pretty colour, you could add an ivory sash and/or wear pearl jewelry (studs, pearl bracelet) to tie it all together. You might even find a dress that has a bit of a pattern with ivory in it.

introvertedgal:  I think this veil is a neutral color so it will contrast nicely with  most colors, as long as they aren’t too closely related. If you get a blue or purple (or any color) as long as it is not white or ivory, i think you will be good to go! Do you have any dresses in mind you can show as an example?

Honestly, I think it will look fine! My dress was grey, and I ordered a grey veil off of Etsy, but it was quite a bit different from my dress, it almost had a greenish undertone. But it was so light you couldn’t even tell, especially with the dress behind it.
