    I think if you removed the lace sleeves it’d look wonderful. I actually really like the current neckline, but you could go a bit more plunging. I’m a sucker for plain veils with lace dresses, but others might have better advice πŸ™‚ You look great!

    Oh, please don’t remove the sleeves! They make the gown so much more unique!

    It’s a really lovely gown. If you have sewing skills, and you were thinking of adding lace applique’s to the skirt, why not get a few extra and add them to a DIY veil? You will have something custom-made and a perfect match!

    The dress is very pretty, but I don’t like the sleeves, its too old fashioned looking for me. If you get rid of the sleeves then go with a lace edged veil it wouldn’t matter if the lace matched, otherwise I would try my best to match the lace.

    I like your dress I think its perfect for a barn wedding… I will worn you I bought that same second veil off of ebay and the way the lace is put onto the tulle it looks terrible in person  if you look really closely at the photo you can see what I am talking about.

    I agree it would look better with no sleeves

    My thoughts would be to either keep the lace sleeves and do a simpler veil (no lace) OR remove the lace sleeves and do one of the awesome lace veils you posted. I just think if you kept the sleeves AND did one of those veils the lace would be “competing” and therefore lose how pretty they both are.

    If it were me, I’d remove the sleeves and go for the veil. Either of them!
