OK, so I am using my future sister in law’s veil and her dress was champagne when she got married, but mine is ivory. I thought it wouldn’t be that noticeable but when I tried my dress on again over the weekend, I noticed you could SEE in the pictures that the veil was darker! I really love the veil and it is saving me a couple hundred bucks, but is it ok for it not to match my dress? Is it TOO much of a difference in color??
I need advice bees!!!

I think it’s a little too dark. You have almost a year – could you shop around for something a little lighter?

I agree it is too dark. Shop around on etsy! They have so many to choose from on there! I think they start for as little as $30. Goodluck!

When my aunt got married her veil and dress were noticeably different colors. When we left the wedding my mom looked at me and said “her dress and veil don’t match,” so I know I’m not the only one who noticed. There are a lot of bees on here who sell their veils, and there are other sites (like RecycledBride.com) where you can find one for cheap. You have time to look for one.

Personally I would get a lighter veil that goes with the dress better

My future sis in law said she thinks it makes it look “dingy”..
I like it, but I don’t want people to be staring at the veil and wondering if I mis-matched it on purpose or it was a last minute thing I “forgot”. I could shop for another veil, but I really love this one – I won’t be able to afford one like this and plus, I didn’t have it in my budget since I was planning on it matching. 🙁

If you are trying to save money then here is a fantastic site I found. I bought my tiara and veil for less than 100 with shipping.

Thanks Bees!! I think I’ll try ebay and Craigslist. I just needed some honest opinions. 🙂

Personally I don’t think it looks all that different. I mean I can tell it’s a little darker, but I don’t think it looks bad. Another thing you could do if you don’t want to buy a new one, make one! I made mine and it took just a couple hours, and it was only $20 just buy a plastic comb and tulle from a fabric store! There are tons of tutorials to use!

Where are you in Texas? I found a great place for veils in Houston, my fingertip length veil was only $48! Are you anywhere near there?

I think it kind of makes the veil look dirty to have such a white dress. Etsy has some really simple and cheap veils, or post in classifieds or shop on used bridal shops!

get a lighter veil. i was told to either get it to match or go a shade lighter because darker makes the veil look dirty. you can make your own veil for pretty cheap. i’m planning on making my own silk tulle veil. (i don’t know why i felt a need to buy 21 combs.)
