I don’t know how tall you are plus where’s your ceremony and how traditional is it? Difficult to recommend anything without those details

It would be nice if you could get a veil made with the same lace trim that’s on your dress. An elbow length veil would be my recommendation.

That dress is stunning… the creamy color makes it look extra soft and dainty. Well not dainty, but feminine I guess. It’s just gorgeous.

With the unique pink beading, I think you may have to go for a custom creation. Buying off the rack may not give you the perfect color or pattern. I would suggest an elbow length veil with beading and embroidery in the same pattern as your dress with a delicate scalloped edge, similar to these –

 

 

Try an Etsy alchemy request… or I suggest this shop as their veils look pretty fabulous to me and they are open to custom requests – http://www.etsy.com/shop/honeycombveils

Keep it simple. Remember your going of an overall look.  You’ve found a great dress and you don’t want to hid it.  First determine how you will be wearing your hair and then try on different styles.  Remember the focus should be on your face, the sash on you dress is currently the focal point. Use the veil or some sort of tiara to bring it back to your eyes.

There are two schools of thought about matching the veil to the gown. One says they have to be opposite (simple gown with rich veil, rich gown with simple veil). The other says they have to be similar. Personally, I think that it’s also a matter of the bride’s personality: a strong personality can be stunning in an “important” ensemble.

Now, given that you are Catholic (as I am), I assume you are one of these “strong” women De La Renta-style (or Valentino-style, or Elie Saab-style).

Therefore, I would advise you to pick a mantilla (very Catholic, and very “strong woman”), with scalloped edges, possibly with embroidered appliques.
