Personally- yes.  Because veils are see-through anyways, I think it would be fine.  It might help with a picture though!

I think if they’re close it’s fine, but I wouldn’t get a champagne veil with a pure white dress, you know?  It’ll make the veil look dingy (or vice versa if the colors are opposite!).

I like that the dress and veil match. You just have to see them together and see how close the shades are to each other.

Sorry, but I feel like they should match.  You wouldn’t think that they would show the color difference, but when you put the two colors right on top of each other, it’s noticeable.  Check Etsy – there’s tons of veils of all colors!

If it didnt have the edge I would def say go for it, but with the edge on the veil I think it will be more noticable that it is a different color. I had my alterations lady make me a veil for much less expensive than purchasing in store. Maybe that would be an option to look into? I had 3 different veils by my wedding day after running into this issue so I feel your pain!

I think your veil colour should match the colour of the dress… despite it being see through, the difference in colour will def show…

I honestly don’t think there is a right or wrong answer – just personal preference.

I agree it is personal preference.  My opinion though, I would want the veil to match my dress.

I think the veil should match the dress in color. Especially if the veil has edging.
