Anyone with thoughts on this? My wedding is this August & hadn’t thought to find a veil!! It seems like anything more than a hair piece would be overkill! I’m thinking just a few flowers in my hair.
Side note: I’d also love to find a flower girl dress (2 1/2 yr old) that’s similar style w/o paying a fortune. I found this pic online but have no idea where the dress is from. Ideas, anyone?

I love the dress! I think it might be too much with a veil. I like your flower idea, that would definetly fit in with the dress. I’m not sure about the flower girl dress, but it’s adorable!

I think it would depend on the type of veil… In general though, it may be a bit too much. Flowers in your hair would be lovely though!

This is my dress too! I am wearing a veil with it – but very simple/unobtrusive so as not to interfere with how much is going on with the dress. I am wearing a cathedral length veil with no adornment, cascading sides, and a very thin satin ribbon edging.The salespeople recommended not wearing a veil that isn’t floor length because to wear anything shorter cuts the line of the dress since there is so much going on on the dress itself. Hope this is helpful!

I think you should have a short veil like these or not at all
Anyway, I think it’s best to have some flowers instead

I think whether or not you wear a veil depends on your hair style & dress. If you keep you hair simple and clean I say getting a birdcage veil wouldn’t be overkill. If not, stick with just the hair flower.

I’m obsessed with your dress… BEAUTIFUL!!! I voted “no veil.” 🙂

YOUR DRESS IS GORGEOUS!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!
mine is similar (but not) – similar shape and complexity at the bottom. Im SUPER traditional, and my compromise was to have the simplest veil sticking out of the back of my Bun during the ceremony, and not have anything over my face.
I just want some pics, and then I’ll take it off for the reception. As I said I want everything that’s traditional in a wedding, so I think you can pick something simple and easy, which you can take off a few hours later.
LOVE YOUR DRESS!!!!! 🙂

I’m having the same debate… I’m wearing a dress that has some layers that are kind of ruffly, and it seems like the veil is over kill. I’m kind of thinking I might be able to get away with a very simple one layer veil with no volume (I saved the photo of Mrs. Dolphin’s veil, but don’t want it that long).
But really, I’m no help because I haven’t decided either, and my wedding is at the beginning of JULY!!
Edit – why don’t I just include a picture of the dress… also, I kind of disagree with the birdcage idea if you’re going for a romantic/whimsical look. I think it’s almost too sophisticated for your dress.

No veil! A long one would be too much and a birdcage is inappropriate.

i don’t think it’d necessarily be overkill, but my vote is for flowers

I agree flowers will work best. I was dead set on wearing a cathedral length mantilla-type veil, so I had to decide against buying this dress even though I tried it on and loved it.
