Good day to you, my weddingbee friends! I went to a local boutique today to have my dress (just arrived last week!!) properly laced up to get a better idea of potential alterations and veil options. As it turns out, it does need to be altered, so pardon the clamp in back.
My dress is certainly unique and likely not for everyone, but I LOVE her and want to do her total justice. When I check the designer’s website, I never see the models in veils besides a few caps and one mantilla, so I am unsure what might be suggested with it. So, here’s my vision and I would truly appreciate all of your honest veil advice!! 🙂
Theme: Vintage Modern Bohemian Chic- romantic, feminine, ethereal, fae, but bridal.
Now for the pics (never mind my bad hair day..lol):

Your dress is so pretty and unique on it’s own. I feel like the raw/cut edge veil is the only one that doesn’t “compete” with your dress…the others seem like they make things too busy & my eyes aren’t sure where your focus is (but maybe that’s what you want?). My second choice would be the flower. Then again, I tend to like things a little more simple. Go with your your instincts and with what makes you feel beautiful!!! 🙂

I like the bridal cap best, personally. I think it gives the look a really unique bohemian look while still being fashion-forward and ethereal. I suppose I’m in the minority, though :).
I don’t know, I usually love bridal flowers, but there’s something about it that looks a little…I don’t know–common?–for this look. The bridal cap makes you look like a fashionable little bridal gypsy or something.

B. Simply because it is as unique as your dress… they complement each other well =)

i like the raw edged veil or perhaps the flower, but maybe a smaller one.

I’m also a fan of the raw edged, for the same reasons posted previously!

I’m super into bridal caps lately. So of course I voted for that. I think it goes best with the look you’re going for. So chic!

I love the bridal cap with that gown and your bohemian wedding. I am keeping my fingers crossed that you chose that cap.

The cap is beautiful and goes along with your theme well, but I think the flower is the best choice. It really compliments the style and theme, and looks wonderful with your dress. The other veils are pretty, but I think they compete too much with the details in your gown. I think a simple flower fascinator is the perfect compliment to such a detailed and unique dress- plus it coordinates nicely with the flowery ruffle detail at the bust!

I love either the raw-edge veil or the flower. I think the other options “compete” with your dress, as a PP said. With a statement dress like that, let the dress be the focal point! Keep it simple with the other accessories.

I voted cap. Look up Kate Moss’ veil! It would be perfect…
Wait, I’ll just find it for you.

I still like the bridal cap. Unlike some of the other posters, I don’t think the raw edged veil compliments your dress. The mantilla is ok, the flower is ok, but the bridal cap looks awesome! 🙂
