    Since there’s no lace in the back of the dress, i feel like adding a lace veil will tie everything together really nicely. Gorgeous dress!

    I HIGHLY recommend trying on veils with the dress because you will get a totally different picture of the whole thing once it is all together. I also recommend taking pictures of yourself because that will help you to step back and look at the outfit as a whole and how it will appear to everyone else and how it will look in your photographs of the day.

    That being said I was DEAD SET on a mantilla veil or single layer but once I started trying them on with my dress (which was fuller and more dramatic like yours) they just didnt make sense. They seemed to get lost in the look and something simple and yet with a little more volume seemed to balance everything out better and look like it belonged. Good luck!

    I’d definitely go try them on, but personally I wouldn’t want to detract from how detailed and intricate the dress is by wearing a mantilla veil.  I think since the dress is such a statement, the veil should be a little simpler to avoid the outfit becoming too busy.

    I agree with the OPs. I think lace in the back on the veil would beautifully tie it all together! I think cathedral length would be stunning.
