My dress is champagne, ivory, with silver lace. 🙂 I am torn between waltz, chapel, and cathedral. And between lace to match my dress or go simply tulle. I feel like tulle should only be waltz lenght tho BC it will be underwhelming any longer than given my dress lace! Please share thoughts on the length and design and where to buy. Also, i dont have mt dress in yet, so should i just order the samples from etsy shop and take it to my fitting appnt to match the colors before ordering the veil?
I love seeing your photos too! So share if you like 🙂 thanks ladies!
Possible option as tulle and waltz
Or lace cathedral

Wow, that dress is stunning! I may be a bit biased but I’d go with the lace cathedral veil. I actually like the first cathedral that you posted. With a train like that, you wouldn’t want a waltz length because it can be a little distracting in the way that it would create an extra layer that I think would take away from the lines of that dress. That being said, a fingertip length veil probably wouldn’t be as distracting.
You know, I don’t think you could go wrong with ordering samples. I think I’d lean more towards the ivory rather than champagne. I could be wrong but a champagne coloured veil might overwhelm the lace appliques on the top layer and personally, I think the ivory would compliment the lace.
I bought an el cheapo veil from aliexpress which was okay for the job but I think you’d find better quality on etsy tbh. BlancaVeils (Etsy) and Occansey Designs (they have an etsy shop, too – just can’t remember the name) used to be pretty popular back when I was searching a yr ago. There’s a few more out there but I can’t think of them right now.
I wore a sparkly (not quite blingy) ballgown so my personal style was fairly different to yours but here is my cathedral drop veil:
I loved the way it kinda melted into my dress. It also has a beaded edge but since this dress was beaded all over, you won’t be able to see it until you get to the close up pics, lol.

wow beautitul dress and veil! that combo looks amazing. thanks for the awesome ideas and suggestions! I havent thought about thw waltz lenght and how that may make my dress look. It is indeed a bit awkward, given my dress has a long train (the size in the photo was actually double my size; so, may be thats why it looks extra long. Not sure what it will look like once the dress come in though :)). I am leaning more and more towards cathedral lace!!! ah! I just keep thinking what if I dont like it……haha the one i tried on the store was freakishly longgggggggg and plain, I didnt fall in love with it. I will def check out those etsy stores! I think ivory will be nicer touch too, rather than champagne veil. 🙂
