I’m new to this site but you ladies really seem to know your stuff! Can anyone offer some advice about whether the veil color really needs to match the dress?
I have an ivory silk dress with delicate light gold swirly designs on the bodice and hem. The veil I’d like to use is a family heirloom and has a lot of sentimental value for me, but happens to be bright white with delicate silvery embroidery at the edges. Personally I don’t think it looks that bad, but several people have told me that the veil just won’t work since the colors are too different. I agree that an ivory veil would match much better, but the white one would be more meaningful to me. Is it too crazy to match a bright white and silver veil with an ivory and gold dress?
