Hi Hive! I got my dress, Harriet by Maggie Sottero, about a month ago and have been looking at veils ever since. I’m pretty much stuck at this point – I just keep going back and forth between the two! Here’s a picture of the dress, plus the two veils I’m considering.
Veil 1 – Re-embroidered lace
Veil 2 – silver embroidery
What do you think? Have you had any veil dilemmas?

I voted for “something different” – your beautiful dress already has so much detail and ornamentation that I would pick a simple veil without lace or embroidery. But that’s just me, of course!

I chose the silver embroidery veil. I think the style of your dress would look great with that one. From the looks of the poll, most bees feel the same.

With this outfit I would with a dropped veil like this
with a thin lace trim like this

I chose the second one but I dont know if thats because its on a real person…but I really like the detail on it…its very pretty

I personally wouldn’t do lace with your dress…I would do a really pretty, white simple layered veil.

How about something like this? It could be worn either as a drop veil or a mantilla, and it has embroidery, but it’s a bit more subdued.

I like it but the scalloped edge won’t look good with your gown. You need a straight edge because the hem is straight.

I’m with @colette27 on this: your dress has so much gorgeous detail that a simple veil might work best. Good luck!

I wouldn’t go with a lace trim… but both are really pretty. Have you tried them on with the dress?

I haven’t gotten to try anything on with my dress yet. I have a fitting tomorrow, but the bridal shop doesn’t have a lot of selection. But, I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.

Both of them are pretty. I think a simple veil without lace would be nice, too, since the dress has a lot of detail already.

Both of them are so pretty and I had a hard time telling them apart actually! I think either one would look nice with your dress or just a straight edged lace veil
