Ok bees, I’m posting this in ‘dress’ because I know it gets a lot of traffic and I need help!
I am having the WORST time trying to find a veil colour that will match my champagne/alabaster colour dress!
I had a diamond white one – it looked too white and cheap against the dress
Then I bought an ivory one – but it still looks very light!
I don’t want to go too dark in the veil for fear of it looking dirty or dingy…
I’m getting married outside so wondering if the sun will make a difference and maybe the colour doesn’t really matter
I’m not sure what colour to go with!

I know how hard it is to match veils, as I did the same thing for my daughter’s dress. Hers was diamond white with champagne lace overlay. The champagne veil was too dingy and almost dirty looking (but we thought it would be a perfect match), but the diamond white was just right. You really need to shop around when trying to use an off color, but you’ll find it.
Here’s a picture of her with her veil, and one of how different the colors were next to each other.

@Sunshine09: Not sure if you’d be interested, but I have an ivory veil with sort of an old-gold colored rolled ribbon edge. Would something like that work with your gown, do you think? The tulle is still light enough to see through, show your hair, etc., and the darker edging can tie in with your dress.
Not sure if it’s a length/style you’d be interested in, but it might at least give you an idea for what to look for. Pics are here:
