ZoeCarroll:  I can totally relate as I spent several weeks stressing over tulle shades and matching. That said, no, I don’t think the veil is too white but I would recommend the one with simple beading as it doesn’t compete with, just compliments, the beading on your dress.

ZoeCarroll: I like the one with just the beading too, as you said it goes best with your dress. Looking forward to seeing the recaps. Hope sorting the final touches goes well and most importantly enjoy your big day!

I like the one with more ornate beading better. That said, I do think the difference in color is pretty obvious. Have you thought about dying it? I bet you could, although it would be a crapshoot this close to your wedding. The other thing you could do is go to a wedding fabric store and buy tulle to make one (veils are ridiculously easy, it’s just tulle ($5/yard) and a comb). I don’t think it will look bad per se if you just went with one of these, but in my opinion it’s non-ideal.

ZoeCarroll:  Like others, I recommend the veil with the beading. Even though one can see the whiteness of the tulle, it still compliments your dress. Dyeing it would be risky since your wedding is only a week away.

I think they are too white.  You need a cream cloured veil

Just bite the bullet and buy one.  Maybe look an Craigslis tor yourl ocal second hand listing to see if you can get something quickly and cheaply.

Love your dress!  I have not done this myself but there are threads on WB about tea staining veils.  I’m sure you can google it too.  If you just dip and rinse (don’t let it sit in the tea stain) it should just take away the stark whiteness. You can do it multiple times to get the color you want.  Please research first for exact instructions.  Good luck!

I was also going to recommend the tea staining.   I have zero advice on how it’s done just read about it and successes.

The color is obvious. Most people won’t notice it at the cermony when you’re actually wearing it, though. You have to decide, will the colors bother you in pictures?  I prefer the look of the first one.
