cannotwait, I’m another La Sposa bride!  I love their line, the lace dresses are so gorgeous and romantic.  Here’s my dress: http://nicolettecouture.com/pdf/lasposa/melodia.jpg

My gown is also lacy with sort of a trumpet shape.  I tried on some veils with it, and my favorite was a fingertip-length veil with a blusher and a satin corded edge.  The weight of the cord made the veil hang beautifully, and I thought the simplicity of the cord set off the gown really nicely. 

I think you’re right about the blusher plus long lace veil looking a bit mismatched, but a drop veil with an allover lace edge would be gorgeous and very romantic.  I think something along the lines of Occansey veil #25, but with a more delicate lace at the edge, would be divine with your gown.

Dear Melissa B,

Were you listening in on my conversation with my mother today??? I had this exact conversation!  I picked up my lace trumpet style dress yesterday.  My friend who accompanied me believed that the fingertip length looked best.  I am probably doing a blusher veil as well.  My mother, who By The Way USED to own a bridal shop replied to me "Oh gosh I would have to see it"  WELL, thanks mom! She did give me one bit of good advice, she said let the BACK of your dress be the guide, see where it hits you in the back, compared to the back of the dress and see which is most flattering.  Definitely it should not be higher than the dress (if for instance you are wearing a low back or strapless) and clearly THE BACK is what everyone is going to be staring at the whole time.  Unless like my best friend you faced the guests.  It was a nice idea for her ocean cliff wedding but not happening for me! HTH!

Just wanted to say that I love your dress! I would get a plain veil, with a cut edge.  Your dress is so beautiful that you dont need a fancy veil.  Good luck! Can’t wait to see what you picked!

@ju1244 — too funny, we’re definitely on the same wavelength!  The back of my gown is actually pretty plain (it’s got lovely pearl and lace detailing, but I doubt my guests will be able to see it from their seats!) so I like the idea of having the fingertip-length veil to add some bridal drama.  Plus, I read somewhere that fingertip-length veils make you look taller 🙂

@cannotwait — post pictures when you’ve got them!  I would love to see how your veil turns out.  And now that I’ve seen the Occansey drop veils, I’m going to have to try some drop veils myself.  The shape is so elegant, and I love the way they drape when the top layer is pulled off the bride’s face.

I love this veil! So pretty with the lace trumpet but I have no clue who it was made by. I just saw it on http://www.pearlsplace.com
