My dress is so-called “ivory.” I would like to order an inexpensive veil from Etsy. How do I know whether their “ivory” will match my “ivory”? Or maybe the variation in color won’t be noticeable because of the sheer fabric? Also, how do I know what kind of veil will look good with my dress? Now I understand why people pay a fortune to buy a dress from a bridal salon…I could use those sales girls’ help right about now.
Here is my dress:

I don’t think you have to worry too much about matching the color except going for an ivory veil over a white one. I didn’t check to make sure that mine was the same color and it looked fine.

I made my veil, but I still went into David’s Bridal (not where I purchased the dress) to try on veil to see what I liked. Even though I didn’t have the dress with me, it gave me an idea of what I liked.

Everything I have read says, to be safe always go one shade lighter than your dress. Nothing worse than a dark-dingy-veil. If your dress is Ivory, maybe go with Diamond White. It is not stark white, it is almost like an Ivory, but closer to white. That way, it will be lighter.
My dress is Off White, and I am ordering a Diamond White veil, 100%. I will not even consider trying to match the color cause I doubt it would ever match exactlly, unless it was made by the same company as the dress. Even then, I prefer it to not match exactly. Diamond White is a really nice shade.
