    Oh my gosh, that veil is STUNNING!  Girl, you are going to be breath-taking.  🙂

    The veil is awesome, but I’m not sure it goes with your dress 🙁

    The veil and dress are speaking 2 different languages that don’t quite work together in my mind. The veil is saying “young, fluttery, and whimsical”  while the dress is saying “sophisticated, elegant, and sexy”. And I think the matching earrings and necklace are too much. I’d keep the necklace and go with a more simple earring. But I have a “less is more” approach to accessories, so take it for what it’s worth.

    If you really love the veil (and it is a showstopper!) then maybe I would consider not wearing the necklace also. Or maybe putting on the necklace after you take the veil off. I think that might be a bit much all together.

    But the dress and the veil I think could look lovely together!

    Love the look but I do think it would be even better with a chunky pearl necklace and no beading on the dress (it would only compete with the veil, as would a lot of blingy jewelry). I can’t wait to see the veil when you are finished!

    That veil is so unique!  The only thing I’m worried about is that the dress looks much shinier in the pic of a real bride than in the stock photos, and shiny dress + elaborate, tiered, decorated veil + big, shiny earrings and necklace might be a little much.  It might be hard to see you under all that decoration!

    I’m guessing you aren’t planning on wearing the veil for the reception, just the ceremony, so you could always just skip the jewelry for the ceremony and then afterwards, when you take off the veil, put on the earrings and necklace for the reception?

    Oh and would you have enough time to wait and make the veil until after you’ve gotten the dress?

    The veil is beautiful but does not go with the wedding gown, even if you removed the beading, they are two different styles. I’m surprised you choose the veil as the show stopper over your gown, you will be wearing the gown the entire day, the veil will only be on a short period of time. You gown is beautiful, but maybe you can cancel the order? Try finding a more simple gown if the veil is more important to you. Good luck!

    @MissFireFlower:  I would make the veil and then decide, but i do think that the beading of the dress and the flowy-ness or of the pedals on the veil clash.

    Is the veil you are making two tiered, and if so, will you be putting it over your head for the ceremony? If were to go for this look, I’d stick to one tier to try and simplify the whole package. 

    However, since you asked for our opinions, I think that a veil that’s so avant-garde and whimsical would be better suited for a plainer dress.  Removing the beading on the dress wouldn’t change the overall look of it which to me is very romantic and sophisticated!   

    Regardless, I feel strongly that if you’re happy with it, then it’s the right direction to take.  At the end of the day, it’s your wedding and it’s important to make yourself happy!!!! Laughing
