    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 πŸ™‚

    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 πŸ™‚

    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 πŸ™‚

    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.

    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 πŸ™‚

    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
