I’m trying to decide if a sweetheart neckline would look okay on this dress… I always imagined a sweetheart neckline for me, but I’m not sure if this dress can handle it. Also, I was originally thinking a fingertip mantilla would look good with this dress, however I don’t want to take away from the beautiful details on the back… so my question is, if it were yours, what length would you make your veil? Thanks!

i think you can totally sweetheart it without taking away from the detail – and i personally think it would look great!
also i love mantilla veils so im all for a finterip lenghth just try and find something sheer enough to not hide the detail on the dress – it should be pretty easy to find.

Beautiful dress! I think I would leave the neckline as is, a sweetheart might take away from the nice detail. What about a long sheer veil (obviously I haven’t done any veil shopping and I’m not into the terms) that would go to the floor? I feel like you want to avoid the end of the veil hitting where the detail is on the dress, and if it was sheer enough you could still get some of the detail?

I think a sweetheart neckline would be ok, if it’s nt too deep.

A true sweetheart is probably not going to work, but a little deeper dip should be OK.
Veil–I would not do fingertip or elbow length. In the back, those will hit you at either the top of your waist or the top of the skirt. Either way, the lace on the veil will compete with the details on the dress.
If you don’t want a long (chapel or cathedral length) veil, go with shoulder length. Personally, I think the long would look better. DB veils are usually very sheer, so no worries about covering up the details on your dress.

I think a sweetheart neckline could work, but I aagree with the previous post to not go too deep.

@ScalingBride2Be: I love your gown! I wouldn’t wear a mantilla with your dress, as the lace detailing with compete with the gorgeous detailing of your gown. I think a sheer cathedral or fingertip would look stunning. Also, a modified (slight) sweetheart would look pretty. Just make sure it doesn’t take away from the beautiful bodice.

I would leave the neckline alone, I think it may be too much with the details on the bust.
I also would forgo the mantilla, for the same reason as it wil distract from the gorgeous back details on the dress!

@ScalingBride2Be: Hmm…I think adding a sweetheart for this particular dress might be too fussy. Maybe a partial scoop would work, but I think I would just the neckline alone. I still love the idea of a cathedral length mantilla with this gown!
