    No, it would clash with your dress... go with a Christina Garcia. : (4 votes)

    That veil is beautiful! I think it’s ok if it is lacy, it’ll still look pretty with your dress.

    I admit it, I spent a lot on my veil. I know a lot of people say that they’ll only wear it for a few hours (if that) so it doesn’t make sense to spend a lot, but you’re wearing during the most important part of the day, so for me it was worth it.

    Maybe try Etsy Alchemy? You can specify what you want to pay and exactly what you are looking for, with pictures included. Maybe someone can make what you want for cheaper.

    I tend to not think that expensive veils are worth it but everyone has different priorities.

    i can’t really see the detailing on your dress. if you’re worried about clashing, why not try a raw edge veil? i think the etsy veil would be really pretty with the thicker edge removed though.

    I had a lace veil with a kinda similar dress.  I was really worried about them not working together but I ended up really loving the way they complimented each other.  Mine was a really elaborate antique lace veil so it didn’t even perfectly match the color of my dress.  That also worked out fine since it just made the details of the lace stand out more and didn’t have the color clash effect that I was worried about.

    I think if you love it and can find room if it in the budget, you should go for it! Who cares if it is anyone else’s favorite look or if they agree with how you spent the money. The day is for you and your hubby and you shoudl od what makes you happy!
