@Mrs.Mods: Not sure if it helps now but I agree with the other bees option 2 on the first set of pics looks like the nicest

@Mrs.Mods:  That’s VERY similar to the veil I almost got (one of my bridesmaids and my Maid/Matron of Honor (sister) voted for a veil like that). They were overturned, I decided a birdcage veil was more “me,” but I think a veil like that looks GORGEOUS with the embrace. 🙂

@Mrs.Mods:  I’m all for the line of pearls. I think it would be beautiful!

@Mrs.Mods:  oooooo I love the idea of the same lace from your dress to be on the veil, with the crystals or pearls will u be wearing any jewlery? Will it go? Do you like sparkle? coz some crystals could give it a nice sparkle too

@Mrs.Mods:  Please don’t take this in a bad way, but I have seen this picture below from another Bee and I commented to her… which I will repeat to you, that it looked like they ran out of lace and just ended it.  I think a simple chapel or finger tip lenth veil in raw edge would be great, or extend the lace with or without bling/pearls around the circumfrence of the veil.

Which dress are you going to wear?  This will also impact on the veil you select.

@Mrs.Mods:  I would really think about it.  Please get other people’s ideas as I am just not an expert.  Just a personal opinion, that even with the tapering lace, it may not look ‘right’.

Perhaps if you were using lace motives scattered around the bottom of the veil, with some rhinestones/crystals and pearls (same as in the flower of the dress) and then the lace motives faded away with the pearls/crystals continuing in a scattered pattern.  I am probably talking rubbish here.  I would google a bit more.

Honestly, their veils are not very expensive at all (compared to the bridal shops), unless you go for the hand made flowers or extensive beading.  You have time, so think about it and please get other opinions, not just mine.

@Mrs.Mods:  http://www.occanseydesigns.com/index.html

This is a great website that explains the multitude of options you have with veils.  I used it myself to selected my daughter’s veil. I know it looks too much, but you will quickly eliminate the options you don’t want.

It also has photos of real brides with veils, and then explains which veil the bride is wearing.  When you are looking at these photos, check:

1. Dress style and fabric

2. Hair style and where the veil is placed in relation to the style

Hope it helps.

@Mrs.Mods:  I agree that if you want one that doesn’t flow over your shoulders then maybe the lace wouldn’t be a good idea but having pearls or crystals on it or small lace motives like Aussiemum said Smile as the veils that go in at the back of your head tend to be much thinner as you described the style that you like. (I’m not expert either just looked at lots of veils! lol!)

is this more the kind of style you like?

The first three pics, not the last two (not sure how i copied those too!)

It’s described as  “Three different views of a  29″ angel cut veil, sheer fullness, pencil edge”

Hi ladies!

My dress came! Good: The fabric, craftsmanship, is absolutely exquisite. It’s really incredible how good a job they did, I took it to a tailor, she could in no way tell it wasn’t a designer dress (she said “this is a Maggie Sottero, right?”) She was really impressed! The bad part is, it doesn’t fit perfectly, the hips are too tight, and the bust is too big, so it fits kinda blocky. But my tailor assured me that this can be easily fixed (closer to my wedding date). 

I put down my whole experience here: 

My Jasmine's replica dress experience:

Here are some pics (keep in mind it doesn’t fit perfectly…)
