If you can’t tell, my dress is covered in lace. And it’s ivory, although I’m not sure this pic is one in ivory…
I prefer the drama of cathedral length veils on me personally…I have tried them on. I just don’t know if I can do a lace or beaded edged because I will be wearing a sparkly sash, not seen in this photo. I am not sure if a veil with decoration will be too much?
We are also getting married on a beach, if that makes any difference. It’s just us 2, so it will be a small, short wedding.
Please help. 🙂

@Coral99: I love a veil with a beaded edging, but do think that if you’re doing the beaded belt, maybe a raw edge cathedral would do! I love your dress, btw!

I think you’d be fine with a veil like in this photo. The edging is subtle but there, and it would acentuate the sash.
Are you able to try both on at once, say when the sash comes in? That’d be the easiest way to tell.
I love cathedral length, but decided against it because I felt it’d be too much hassle outside. I’m a little jealous that you’re going for it! 🙂

@pengoala: That’s EXACTLY what I was thinking! Good to know someone else out there holds the same idea. Thanks for the compliment. 🙂
@MietzMietz: Since it’s just us, I figured it wouldn’t be a hassle. I’m also doing a decorative comb and a smaller veil over the cathedral so even if I take it off I’ll still be wearing a veil.

I’m obsessed with mantilla veils, and I’m bummed that my dress doesn’t match that look.
Your dress would look lovely with one!

@Kat: I do too. But I tried them on and not a single one worked. 🙁 They all competed with the lace or clashed with it. The sash didn’t help either. I have tried it over and over…no dice. I was very disappointed because they are the most romantic, to me!

@Coral99: Ahh, that makes sense..
If you want to wear the veil during the reception and dancing too, perhaps you could do something like this (it’s still pretty dramatic I think): http://www.etsy.com/listing/93135305/single-layer-tulle-bridal-veil-waltz?ref=shop_home_active
