    I tried on a veil that has a tiny bit of bling around the edges. It was beautiful!! 

    I love your dress. Mine is similar but does have lace up top but bottom is plain tulle and cuts off in same place. I love it!  But I was also concerned that it’s too plain. I did try a lace edged cathedral veil and I didn’t not like. It took up too much and took focus away from my dress, I felt. I also tried one that just had lace on the back and I loved that. So definitely try on different ones! 

    I tried on your dress and it was super flattering! But my dress was made for me so…. Good luck!

    leonatigra:  Persoanlly I think a lace veil will clash with the dress. How about a plain fingertip veil with maybe some sparkle on it, or like a rhinestone trim? I think that would go better, but then again your headpiece brings some sparkle so I think a plain fingertip would wourk perfectly.

    Really beautiful dress and gives you an amazing shape! I think either a plain or lace veil would be fine. Dramatic earrings perhaps for some contrast? What about going in a different direction and consider a flower crown?

    I would suggest a veil with maybe simple pearl or sparkle detail, nothing crazy and wow them with your head piece and other jewels. Anyway you go you will look great, your dress is gorgeous!

    I don’t love embellished veils – they either compete with the dress and look off or are super matchy. So my vote is for plain. I LOVE your dress and it looks slamming on you but I get wanting to dress it up (my dress has sequins – I am not a stranger to wanting a little something). I personally would do that with headpiece, cool shoes, great flowers, etc rather than the veil (which you’ll probably take off after the ceremony anyway). Maybe a cool beaded shrug? Whatever you do you’ll look great though because that’s a gorgeous dress.

    You look smashing it in, but I like some bling!

    Maybe a bling belt? Or a lace veil?

    First I was anti-lace too, but ended up with a lace, mermaid dress and a blingy belt LOL

    BUT with a plain veil.


    Best of luck to you!

    I would go with either a plain one or one edged in rhinestones or pearls.  I have a similiar head piece, and my dress has the same style top.  I got a chapel length single tier plain one.  But I did also try on a elbow length one with crystal edges that looked good with my dress.
