My sister did this, and it turned out just fine. honestly, it may depend on your dress and veil. If your veil is a large statement piece with a lot of white lace or decorations, it might not work as well as having a simple white veil, which is what my sister did. nobody even noticed the color difference

no your dress will look dirty in comparison.

I wouldn’t do it. I made my own veil because I wanted it to match. My dress was more of a champagne and I couldn’t find anything dark enough. I had to tea-dye the trimming to get it the right color. It was worth it though…a normal ivory veil would have been too light and looked awful with my dress. But I do think it depends on the dress. Try them on together before deciding though.

When we were picking out our attire, someone at one of the stores compared white and ivory together like snow and dog pee.  Yuck.  I think it will look odd.  You can get a very nice ivory veil for very cheap.  I got mine at Michael’s for less than $10 and it looked great.

Definitely not.  Your dress will look dirty.  A cousin of mine did this and I’m sorry to say that it looked really bad.  Also, a veil is a veil.  For the most part, it’s a piece of tule.  I wore a $7,000 Kenneth Pool dress with a $100 David’s Bridal veil after the drop veil I ordered literally would not stay in my hair.  It looked beautiful and I received many compliments.
