I would wear a veil that doesn’t have any appliques on it; the lace around the bottom is nice but I think the appliques throughout the veil take away from the dress a little. I wouldn’t worry about it covering the back of the dress though, especially if you’ll be removing the veil for the reception.

bat2015:  I vote no veil. There are so many other things you can do…….head band, clips, flowers….You can totally find something that will work.

I am having a hard time picking out which part is the veil and which part is the sheer skirt of your dress from the picture. I’m assuming the lace edge at the bottom and the appliques are all part of the dress, is that right? If that’s the case, I would vote no veil, as your dress has so much detail with the sheer skirt overlay and train. It’s beautiful and looks great on you! 

If you’ve always envisioned yourself with a veil on your wedding day, though, you could try on some shorter veils to see if they would not blend in so much with your dress.

It’s a very romantic dress. If you decide for a veil I would go short but think that flowers or a headband would look lovely with it.

bat2015:  Oh, I see it now!! so pretty. In that case, maybe no veil or just a shorter one. I wouldn’t want anything to cover that!

lol I had to double and triple examine to pick out what is veil and what is dress so I agree it blends in. Gorgeous dress though! I’d do a shorter veil to show off that detailing in the dress πŸ™‚

Your dress is stunning!  I agree that the longer veil blends in; maybe you could do a blusher veil if you want a veil, or a shoulder or  elbow-length veil?  Or do a pretty hair piece, instead?

I would do either a long, cut edge chapel length veil or a short elbow length veil.

Remember that you’re only going to be wearing the veil during the ceremony so you’ll be able to see the peek-a-boo back throughout the whole reception.  I personally like cathedral veils with every wedding dress. They’re beautiful,  dramatic,  & elegant. So, I’d say any kind of cathedral veil.
