Hi lovely bees!
Its been so great having people to help along the journey of getting a custom dress made, when I cant ask my fiance for his opinions!!
I havent got the final picture of my dress yet as further layers of tulle are being added to the bottom to make it more mermaid (I wrote a post seeking your advice about that, so anyone who saw that, ill update you, im having a further 5 layers added at the recommedation of the dress maker, so 8 layers in total).
But here she is so far;
And here are the four lace edge options ive been sent for the veil (i cant have the same lace as the dress as it is too expensive but I dont think it will be noticable that they are different). My one stipulation is that I prefer wider lace to thin, but at the same time not to big and wide that it detracts from the dress (also im not a real floral fan, so tend to lean to lace that doesnt involve big floral prints);
I am having a chapel length drop veil created, but I’ll still be able to wear it Mantilla style for some pictures (as there is no comb) and it will be catheral length or close to if I do that.
My inspiration pics were;

I like the shape of the second one but the pattern of the first one (I voted first one). When it comes to lace on veils I personally like it to be very fine and delicate, the bottom two look a bit heavy for me personally.

I like the 3 and 4 pics. To me they are simpler than the others and wouldn’t distract as much.

I like the third one, it seems delicate yet has some reality to it.

I voted for the fourth but after looking at the gown once again my vote goes for the lace in the first picture. Its the most appropriate for your dress. It goes well with the sleeves. Plus its delicate yet still detailed.

Thanks for your help so far ladies!!
Ive ruled out 2 and 3. Now im just choosing between no 1 (love the wider lace for the more dramatic look over a tulle train, but im not sure about the length of the trim being too overpowering when i wear as a blusher) and no 4 (sometimes simpler is more elegant, im worried though that its going to get lost in the tulle).
I need to make a decision in the next few hours, so any more thoughts are most appreciated 🙂

I preferred 3 but between 1 and 4, would go for 4! Gorgeous dress by the way!

Thanks for all your help ladies!
Despite the votes going in favour of number 4, i decided on number 1!
I found a picture of me trying on a tulle inspiration dress wearing a veil with the exact lace of number four, and you could hardly see the lace at the back in all the tulle. So that picture, and the fact that all my saved pics had much wider lace styles, confirmed for me to pick the first. I just hope its not overwheming in the blusher, but I only wear that for 5 minutes walking down the aisle so no biggie!
