    Well, without photos it’s hard to give a concrete answer, but I think it sounds lovely.

    My opinion is: if you’re in laws give you a gift, accept it. My future sister in law offered me her late mothers pearl necklace, that all FI’s sisters have worn in their weddings. (FI’s mom is deceased.) I’m not really a pearl necklace kind of gal, but how do you say no to that? You don’t. You wear the necklace, bc it means something to them. And FI. 

    Same thing with the veil.

    I think it’s perfectly fine. Not alot is going on with your dress and the lace would just really be a great detail to bring our your dress. Just try on the veil with your dress but I would wear it anyway. I mean, you wont be wearing it too long anyway (pics and ceremony and possibly during your first dances).
