Well I understand if you bees are sick and tired of my endless veil questions (nylon or silk/ bluser or no blusher?) If you aren’t, please continue reading and help me with my next dilemma. 🙂
I have decided on a Silk Tulle, church length veil w/an elbow length blusher- no bunching, it will be flat.
Before I wanted the blusher I was going to have 1.5mm crystals 3 inches apart for an overall glimmer effect. Now that I will have a blusher that will be turned back obviously, my veil designer said it may be better to have the crystals on the edge rather than all over…
Here is my dress:
And here are the crystal design options for the veil: (pls ignore red color- they will be tiny clear swarovski crystals)
#1 ON THE EDGE
#2 FALLING (at first scattered, then more dense at the bottom)
What do you think? I’m leaning towards the falling, but am open to opinions.

OK- Now I’m changing the poll-
I realized, either I have the blusher with crystals only on the edge, or i have NO blusher with crystals all over the one layer in the back
Please help!! I can’t decide.

My first reaction would have been to go with the all over effect. But if youre designer says otherwise I would go with his advice. Both look great actually, but the one with the corner details makes it appear more delicate, so thats two reasons right there. I say edge crystals. Good luck on your choice!

I voted for the 2nd option, with the crystals all over. I also wanted to add that your dress is gorgeous and i had a small twinge of dress envy 🙂

I love your dress too? Who is the designer?
First, I recommend going to a bridal salon and trying on some combos with the blusher. This will give you a better idea of how much the blusher will cover your crystals. The only caveat–yours is silk tulle, which is a little more opaque than the nylon tulle they are likely to have in bridal salons.
If you decide you want the blusher, the first option is probably your best bet.
If you don’t go with the blusher, I love #2. I love the way the crystals are heavier at the botton.

My instinct is to go with the crystals on the edge, but i could see either way working out fine!

I like the crystals all over the back and I like a blusher too but there wasn’t an option… so I voted other 🙂

What does the back of your dress look like? I can’t really let you know which veil you need without looking at the back 🙂

I’m wondering the same thing! I’m borrowing my sister’s cathedral and it looks like your #2 without the dense ones at the bottom. For my blusher, I’m going with silver edge (it has it on the cathedral) and it will have those bead/crystal flat things (I’m blanking on the name). I was worried that the 2 veils have to “match” but people are only going to see the cathedral for 30 mins or so.

The back of my dress has the same beaded pattern as the front (in the picture i posted above).
I actually went ahead and ordered the veil with blusher, and beading on the edge of both. The designer said if I receive it and want to change it, I can- I can add crystals and take off the blusher even if I like-
So its the best of both worlds! I made a decision without having to make a truly FINAL decision, and this way I will get to actually try it on with the dress and see if it works.
Thank you guys so much for indulging my crazy million questions about this ONE detail! Ugh, its the only thing about the wedding that has tripped me up this much!

Martha Steweart says not to do scattered crystals as they can turn out as small black dots in the photos. No idea if it is true or not though 🙂
I’m leaning towards something to the crystals along the edge myself, here is my inspiration http://mjbridal.files.wordpress.com/2011/04/new_veils1.jpg
