If you want a veil, get a veil.  I wore a cowl back dress with a lace insert.  The veil ended at the bottom of the cowl and it looked fine.  Do not worry.

Veil for ceremony, off for reception. Unless the veil is really thick and detailed, the cowl will still be visible, more than likely, just understated. And then it’s a big surprise during the reception. OR you could do a birdcage veil, if you’re into that? I think it might do well with your dress…

That is one gorgeous dress!!! How about a blusher? (I think that’s what it’s called lol)

I love it!! I would vote for either a sheer cathedral-length veil, if you want something dramatic during the ceremony (the long length would complement the back of the dress, rather than a shorter length, which might compete with the dress), or else a birdcage veil or hair accessory. If you do choose a traditional veil, I would stay away from beaded or lace edges – a raw edge would keep it simple and elegant.

I am always pro-veil….maybe something simple and shorter to still show the detail of the back and then take it off for the reception…..

Maybe something like this…..my vote would be 1 or 2 with your dress!

There are several styles of veils. You can still wear one without it being long and interfering with your dress’s design. There are bridal caps, birdcages, blushers, etc. I think any style would look great with your dress. Let us know what you decide! 🙂

Long sheer thin veil, a’la Kate Middleton. LOVE veils, every girl should get to wear one for their wedding; they make you feel so bridal!
