I think it looks awesome in that picture! But, I do have to admit I’m completely clueless when it comes to veils…but I don’t see why it wouldn’t look great!

I think you can totally wear it with a dress with no lace. I like that look actually. My dress will be all lace (watters harmony) and I dont think I could get a lace veil cause it would be overload. But ya I think it could look really good with a no-lace dress! πŸ™‚

Do you have a pic of your dress?

Well im a non traditionalist anyways so my motto on all wedding related things is .. it is your wedding do what you want and what makes you happy… I guess the best suggestion otherwise is go to to a bridal store with your gown and try some different veils on to see what looks best….. then go home and buy something similar on ebay to save money…. hehehe im evil i know

Hmm… looking at your dress… which i love by the way… with all the ruffles and layers it does have a bit going on but I do love the  lace veil but I do wonder if a simpler veil is not the way to go … I agree that I dont like the one they tried on you but what about a 2 tier veil? They are a little fuller

If you can try on any in the store it might help you get an idea.  I thought my all lace veil would not go with my dress at all as it didn’t have a bit of lace in it but I liked how they ended up going together.

I still say though… if you want a lace veil get a lace veil… 

Could you perhaps find a veil that still has the lace detail you love but not so much of it? Perhaps the lace detail is skinnier…

The best way to know how you feel about it wth your dress is honestly to just try it on with it

yeah who knew there was so many different types of veils LOL 2 tier basically is just that is has 2 pieces of material layered overtop one another rather than just one….

If your dress were plain like the original photo, I’d say go for it…

However, your wedding gown is so gorgeous (like jaw dropping!) I would go with a plain veil. You don’t want to take away from or have conflict with your beautiful wedding dress! πŸ™‚

I remember when you were brand new on the boards & just falling madly in love with your dress!

@ellenphant: I am having the worst time finding a dress I love, love, love… I finally found some possibilities & I showed them to my Fiance (big mistake) he pretty much disliked every single one! Guys have such a weird view on how their bride should look! I think they base their views on movies & past weddings they’ve been too!  haha if it were up to my FI I’d probably have poofy sleeves & 20ft long train πŸ™‚
