Beautiful!!!  The dress reminds me of a greek goddess so maybe a cathedral length veil.  I also love how the model is wearing chandelier earrings and no necklace.

Very pretty!  I don’t think I’d do a necklace, could take away from the detail around the bust line. 

I think a birdcage veil might be nice.  Agree with stpetebride, like the earrings shown with the dress.

If you do a necklace, I’d make it a short lenght (not quite choker) and simple.  Like maybe a very thin (1/4") marcasite string.  I think veil length will depend on your build…you should definitely go to a store and try some on.  If you’re short like me, then a short veil might look poofy and give you a weird shape (which is how almost all short veils with all the dresses I’ve tried have looked on me).  But if you go long, make sure it’s very sheer so you don’t hide the detailing in back.  I’d also go with a veil that doesn’t have much of a trim as I think it’ll take away from the dress.

I think a veil would look so elegant. What type of wedding are you having?

Your dress is so beautiful! I think because you have a more simple dress ( not a lot of sparkle) going with a finger tip length veil and some chunky earrings and big vintage bracelet would look absolutely gorgeous. But, no matter what you do with this gown it will be amazing!

I would have to disagree with a bird cage veil (I do love them thow)  your dress is very greecian and a birdcage is very old hollywood that would kind of clash.  I would go very simple dont do a veil with lots of volume and stay away from tulle.  The softer and flowier the veil the better.

For starters I seriously LOVE this dress!  I always say to look at what the model is wearing.  So, I would maybe do the bracelet and chandelier earring look.  For a veil I would do a cathedral veil that is fairly simply…long and flowy would look very romantic with this dress.

You could easily go three ways — chapel or cathedral for drama (maybe this for the ceremony?) and then switch to a fingertip or birdcage for the reception!  Fact is, you have options, and you could always get them online from Veil Shop or OVeil, so it would be affordable enough to be a two-veil bride!

I like the birdcage. It would compliment the grandness fo the dress with a little quirk!
