I’m a bit torn on if I should throw a veil on with this dress or not, and wanted to get your input. I’ll be wearing my hair in a low chignon on the wedding day, and plan to have either a fresh or faux flower near the back/side of my head during the reception and pictures. So really the veil would only be worn during the ceremony.
I’m attemping a somewhat ‘modern’ wedding, so I’m not sure if the veil would look good…or if it will look like a disconnect with the dress. And when I’m talking ‘veil’…I’m thinking elbow length or longer…I’m just not a birdcage kind of girl.
The dress in the attachment looks like a shiny satin – my dress is a matte silk shantung.

Ha ha. Too bad you’re not a bird cage kind of girl, you nixed my first thought! 🙂
I think you probably could pull off a veil with this dress if you wanted to but it would also be stunning without. Is there a way you could go try it on with veils somewhere? Maybe try one with a flat ribbon edge to mimic the tiers?
Gorgeous dress by the way! I love it!

Have you pictured yourself in a veil? I prefer seeing a veil on a bride at least during the ceremony. In my opinion it pulls the entire look together so well!

Maybe a birdcage viel? I like that they give the feeling of a traditional veil but are so chic and classy. I think it would look awesome with your dress — it kind of looks like Mrs. Sea Breeze’s and she had a bird cage!
ps your dress is GORGE!

I think it is gorgeous without a veil, but to me it is related to how you feel. Personally I fall into all of the cliche wedding-ness and had to have a veil. But I know other ladies that went veil-less because it was not their style and they wanted their wedding to look and feel different from the norm. Maybe try a few on with the dress? I know I tried on more veils than dresses! Its a though decision! Good Luck!

I think a veil would look gorgeous with that dress, but that it looks great without one too. It’s all about what you want to do. I know what you mean about not being the birdcage type of girl. I love them, but I would feel silly in one. 🙂

I love your dress and I think it’d look great without one and then wear the flower you mentioned. I think it does look a little more modern, if that’s what you’re going for.
