Got to order a veil this weekend. Which would look best w/my dress? Also, getting married on the beach, want it to go no farther than my waist and want it tucked under an up-do.
Here’s my dress (2nd fitting-excuse the pins)
This is the headband I’ll be wearing
1. satin corded edge- http://www.wedding-veil.com/ivory-shoulder-length-veil.html
2. pearl edge- http://www.wedding-veil.com/pearl-veil.html

I wouldn’t wear one – that headband and your gorgeous hair will be more than enough!

I like your dress with just the headband, particularly for a beach wedding. If you still plan to wear the veil, then I would say go with the veil that is the most simple between the two.

I love what you have picked for a headband! I’d go without the veil, but I’m biased because I’m not wearing a veil for my wedding. We are having an outdoor ceremony and I don’t want the veil to have a mind of its own out in the wind. 🙂

I like veils and headbands together. I’m a little biased though. I prefer the satin-edged veil.

your dress is so beautiful, and the headband is simple, classy and elegant by itself. you don’t need to wear a veil!

so looks like don’t wear a veil has slightly edged out the pearl veil. I had decided I didn’t really need one after your votes/thoughts…Until I got my cake topper today and realized I had the seller make it with a veil!!! (see pic)
So taking that into account, should I still NOT wear a veil or wear one just for the ceremony? Btw, I got my headband in too and it is beyond gorgeous!! Will take pics with it on later 🙂

I honestly don’t think anyone will look closely enough at the cake topper to notice.
You could just wear one for the cerimony!

@red_pepper_gal: Lol!! Nobody will notice-it’s gonna be just the 2 of us!! But I will know lol 🙂 I’m gonna try on the hb tonight and see how it looks. It looks like the ribbon might be kinda long and if it is, I definately won’t wear one. Thx 🙂

My cake topper female is wearing a veil and I am not. So I think that’s just fine. And I do think the headband is good on its own. However if you have to go with one or the other, I’d pick the satin edge.
Edited to add my reason – There is satin in your dress (the sash). But there are no pearls in the dress or your headband. And I like things to match.

I ordered my veil from wedding-veil.com and first let me say they rock. Second since you have a busy dress and then the headband I would look into what they call the finished edge. It is just a small clean stich all the way around. I think that would look better with your outfit. It isn’t as noticeable but looks complete compared to the raw edge

No veil it is! The ribbon on the hb is pretty long, so that totally nixes the veil.
Thanks bees 🙂
