What about a champagne colored veil?

Custom veils can come in colors, what about a champagne, light gold or blush! =)

Just saw you started your own thread about this!  I am not planning to wear a veil, but I think an ivory veil would look beautiful against the oatmeal color.  Reese Witherspoon wore a white veil with her blush dress and it looked awesome:

I think we had the same consultant at Lovely, btw.

I found a pic of another bride in a blush veil.  I don’t think it makes her look muddy at all!  Hope This Helps.  I think you should go for the oatmeal, but I am biased!

can you get a bit extra of the sheer fabric the dress is made from to make a veil?  it looks like it might be organza which tends to be a bit stiff, but it would look ok for some kinds of veils.  what style veil were you looking for?

Love the PP’s idea of using extra tulle from the Olivia to make a veil.  I just noticed that Watters shows both the Palm Springs and the Sydney with oatmeal veils, and I think it looks fantastic!

Can you tell I am enabler?!

More inspiration from Monique Lhullier.  You have got me thinking about wearing a veil now!

@kelly789:  Oh no!!!!  I’m sorry you are having doubts, but I think it is normal.  I also questioned Olivia after I had tried her on but before I went back and ordered the dress.  My advice would be to wait until you try Olivia on again to make any decisions. When you put it on again, I think you will know if it is your dress or not.  If it is–yay, you’re done!  If not–then you can resume the search.

I saw your other thread about the Alita Graham dress.  I think we have very similar taste!  I had an Alita Graham in my top 3 and the pic you posted is my inspiration in terms of styling (I want the same braided hair, short drop earrings and bare look).  As for similar dresses, I saw this dress posted on the October 2012 thread:

You will find your dress!

@kelly789:  What part did you hate? I’m worried that it was my picture you didn’t like, and if you had a concern about our body type with this dress I’d love to hear it. I’m all paranoid now.

I will probably wear an oatmeal/taupe birdcage. I think the oatmeal naturally creates a vintage look and I suspect the birdcage will suit that very well.

@kelly789:  Just wanted to wish you good luck if you are going to the trunk show at Lovely this snowy weekend!  Let us know how it turns out!

@tonights:  You look terrific!  Seriously.  I liked your first dress but I LOVE you in Olivia.  It was also important to me to find a dress with a defined waist and I think Olivia does that perfectly.  Can’t wait to see how you accessorize her.

I think an ivory veil would look beautiful. I actually think it might be distracting if the veil is oatmeal.
