Honestly, if you have your hair like that and the dress has so much detailing…and with the flower in your hair….I would skip the veil :p

Go without a veil; it’s beautiful on its own!

I would do a fingertip veil with a plain edge for the ceremony and then take it off for the reception. You do have a lot of detail going on, so I would skip lace or crystals.

I would either do a flower or a veil, not both. And I would do a really simple veil – with an invisible edge or something similar.

I would do a simple, single-tier fingertip veil with no edging, stones, lace or embroidery.  I wouldn’t wear the veil over your face.  If you are using a hair stylist, he/she should know how to structure your style so that a veil will be well anchored.

I would skip the veil and stick with a nice flower, or another hair ornament.

Can you give us more info, e.g. your face shape, your approximate size, your accessories? I need more info to picture what will suit you.

Let me see how I can analysis it:

Your dress is mainly lace, with some shiny beads… a romantic gown. You want to wear a bolero jacket, a flower on your head and a veil (plus you are petit).

My suggestion:

updo/ semi-updo hairstyle (it will be too much if your hair is down… looks like so much is going on around your head)

if you want a flower of your hair, keep it simple and small… if it has too much details, attention will be drawn to your head not your dress

for the veil, you want a fingertip veil, I think a simple cut edge (simple and elegant) or a mantilla (with the lace matching with your lace dress) both are good choices. You can have an idea from the pictures below
