    You aren’t going to wear it the whole time right?  And it’s not like you have a stark white dress and the veil is blue … rock the veil !!

    I think it’s beautiful, and a lovely gesture and full of meaning. And really, weddings should have meaning above all, right? But I think on the day, it will all read as dots of sparkle since everything is reflecting the light.

    Also you are gorgeous and I am sure will look lovely in anything, but I think that veil will really enhance your dress without competing with it.

    Definitely wear it! If you’re worried about matching, would you consider swapping out the earrings for something that mixed crystals and pears?

    Beautiful veil and beautiful dress!  I don’t think the colors would be different enough to notice and pearls are totally fine with your dress.  Plus, the meaning of wearing it is priceless!

    Wear it. It’s BEAUTIFUL. The details on the veil will be too small for most people to notice anyway (they certainly won’t note pearls vs crystals), and tulle is so sheer that you can barely tell the color difference between even IVORY and stark white unless it’s wrapped in multiple layers around a bolt in Jo-Ann Fabric. You’ll be gorgeous! 😀

    That veil is so beautiful!  It’s very sheer, so I doubt anyone will be able to tell that it’s white and your dress is diamond white.  I’d say that the sentimental value of the veil outweighs the slight difference in color, but if you can, get your dress and the veil together and see how big the difference actually is.  It may not even be noticeable.
