Ignore the bra and poor quality of my dress photos. I purchased it at Filene’s and these happen to be the only pictures that I have of myself in it. So I am also not wearing a slip, which I so obviously need.
What do you think of the beading? Is the cut flattering? (ahem, I am rather large chested)
What type of veil would you suggest? I am thinking fingertip, cut edge…very plain because I do not want to cover up the beading.
It is a little late to be having second thoughts, wedding is three weeks away. I guess I just need some encouragement. So bees, do what you do best….tell me what you think!

Even before I read your post, I looked at your pics and thought to myself "oo that is flattering" so my answer to your question is yes. I second the fingertip veil, I would get a petite fingertip veil which is 35 inches. I’m generally not a fan of plain cut veils so my vote is for pencil edge.

I think the dress is very flattering on you. The beading is very pretty, too. I agree that if you do a veil, you don’t want something that’s going to cover the beautiful beading.

Yes the dress is very flattering! Very pretty. I’m not a good person to ask about veils because personally I do not like em. But definitely don’t second guess yourself. You’ve made a fantastic choice!

I think it’s very flattering! The beading is gorgeous.
As to veils, I agree about not covering any of the beautiful detail. How about a single layer waltz lenght? It’s a bit more unusual, and the edge would fall below the bodice beading, but above that on the train. A cut edge would be nice, and if you like you can add some light beading on the edges to match your dress.

I think your dress looks beautiful on you and is very flatterening. I think it looks really amazing on you. As for the veil I agree something that doesn’t cover up the detail of your dress.

I think it looks great. I think the beading adds some structure to the top and it looks like you’re well supported and like it was just made for you. I had another dress fitting today and I am really starting to feel like my dress is too boob-a-licious for me. I definitely understand the last minute doubts, but I think you look beautiful in your dress.
And I think a plain, fingertip veil would be perfect.

BEE-AUTIFUL! I think the cut in the front is perfect. Not too revealing, but you’re not completely hiding the goods either!

Pretty! I don’t think you even need a slip – unless you want to wear one for comfort. I love how the beading frames your waist. The sparkles on the straps makes for a pretty detail on the back.
