I dont think it would be too much because you have a nice amount of lace in your dress… it would go well together!

As for length, mine is the “average” length whatever that means!

I think it would be a little much, personally.  With all the detail on the dress I would go with a simpler veil, but that is just me.  The dress is gorgeous, btw!

personally i don’t think it goes with the dress. i like the fluffy draped super long one the model has on! But the lace/mantilla style just clashes with the style of the dress I think

I think that might work together. Have you tried on any veils similar to that with your dress? The veil is short and will probably fall at or above your waist. The back of the dress doesn’t have as much lace as the front though, so I don’t think it will compete with the other lace. I would try to find one similar to see if you like the length before you get one online.

I think that it could go but maybe you should chose something a bit  more simple; perhaps something without the fancy lace. I think the styles conflict. The dress is AMAZING though!

I’m being honest and saying what I think — but constructive, all right?

The bodice of your gown has a lot of lace, true, but it sounds too me like the lace in the bodice is corded and the one on the veil is not corded. So I would go for a veil trimmed with either a lace more similar to the bodice of your gown, or corded (silk ribbon) embroidery.

Another issue is the shape of the trimming that doesn’t match the shape of the hem of the gown. In fact, the gown’s is straight whereas the veil’s is scalloped. You would need a straight trim.

The right length of the veil depends on where the breaking points of the gown are. In your case, there are many breaking points (also because your gown has a sash, and a flower, and is strapless). Tht would call for a long veil.

My personal preference would be for a mantilla with corded silk ribbon embroidery, either chapel or cathedral length.

#1. Your dress is absolutely gorgeous.

I think I would go with something a bit more simple since your dress is so stunning, but it would depend on your own taste. I don’t think it would look terrible, but a bit simpler might be better.

I think you’re dress is beautiful, but it may be a bit much with the veil. On the one hand it doesn’t *seem* like there’s lace on the dress, so you won’t worry about clashing. BUT it would be best to try on a similar veil with your dress to really know for sure, say at the bridal boutique you bought your gown at? They often have at least ONE lace veil. :o) GOOD LUCK (you’ll look lovely either way!)

I am in love with your dress! Actually, I’m in love with her sister, Edwina, but that’s basically the same thing.

I think the lace on the veil would match well with the lace on the dress without being too matchy matchy.

I agree with everyone above… pretty dress but it needs a more understated veil
