I do know I want a veil. I have a couple of relatively solid ideas on what I want. But I can’t help thinking maybe there’s something else out there that I haven’t seen or thought of. So I’m asking you Bees for your opinions–I’m still open to suggestions at this point, even if it’s for something I say that I don’t currently claim to like right now. 🙂
This type of dress…
With this neckline…
Made out of this marbled, swirly ivory fabric (it’s cotton):
I’m currently thinking a simple one-tier ivory veil, with a skinny finished edge, either a very small ribbon or a cord. Not sure if I’d want scattered beads/pearls/sparklies on it yet. I’m definately not a lace person, and don’t plan to add any to the dress, so that would probably be out. I think elbow/waist length would look nice… I really don’t plan to have a lot of detailing on the dress because of the patterned fabric. If I have anything added to the dress, it’ll be a very simple belt or possibly a brooch on the neckline if I don’t wear much jewelry. I know most dresses of this style are usually worn with just a fascinator or a birdcage, but I really don’t think those are my style.
What I’m really stuck on for the veil is the material! I was initially thinking sparkle ivory tulle, to give the veil a bit of “pop” while still keeping it simple. But then I saw a few images of veils made out of chiffon, and I just think they’re gorgeous! It’s entirely possible that I may get one of each to see what I like best. But I’d like to get opinions and suggestions from the Hive before I really delve into it more.
