victo:  I  speant less than 25$ on everything! The veil making itself took about 20 minutes. Its the rhinestone placement that takes forever. I’d say I spent about 4 hours total on it.

I love lace veils with lace dresses but more so when there is only lace on half the veil. I find when the veil is full lace trimmed it can take away or be a little too much with the dress. A veil should accent the dress never take away from it.

I wasn’t worried about matching, but I had originally thought I wanted a Swiss dot veil – and then I ended up with a lace dress and decided maybe a little too much! I ended up picking a lace edging to match my shoes, and did cathedral length so that I could have a train for the ceremony, and then the dress had no train for the rest of the night!

It was one of my favorite details 🙂

I don’t think you can go wrong with a lace, beaded, or plain tulle veil. Depends on what look you are going for and your other accessories, and what length you choose. I have a lace dress and bought a very simple rhinestone and beaded edge fingertip-length veil to add some bling. Some lace veils I found too heavy or overpowering but some were absolutely gorgeous.

The back of the dress is butchered in clips, but you get the idea. I went with a cathedral veil. The edge is kind of like a cross between raw cut and horsehair.

I personally think cathedral-length veils are WAAAAY too much for mermaid dresses.  I would vote for finger-tip veils to show off the bottom half of the dress.  Cathedral/floor-length should be only for ballgowns or thick A-lines.
