I really like your dress the way it is. I understand that you originally wanted a lace dress but my worry is that if you add lace to the hem of the dress to make it look like the one in the small picture, it might have an abrupt look.  Maybe I didn’t understand it fully- are you planning to add the lace just to the hemline or will it kind of start from where the floral pattern ends?  My thinking is that since the floral pattern does not continue all the way down, adding lace to the hemline where the fabric is solid might not be a good idea.  I actually love how the floral pattern kind of fades midway through the skirt leaving the rest of the fabric simple and flowy.

I think your dress is perfect as-is.  I honestly wouldn’t mess with the hem.  Even though your dress isn’t lace, it gives off the same vibe as a lace dress, it’s very romantic.  I think adding lace on to it might make it cluttered and would take away from the overall look.

As for the veil, i think the alencon lace would compete a bit with the detail on your dress so i guess my vote would be chantilly or even 

and, my last piece of input even though you didn’t ask…don’t get a reception dress!!  your dress is awesome and you should wear it all night!

I don’t think alencon will go very well with the rest of the dress.  It looks completely different compared to the flowers on the dress.
