any tips on what kind of veil i should pair with my wedding dress? I tried on a finger-tip length veil with a lace edge in the salon that seemed to go well with the dress but was wayyy over budget so I didn’t buy it. But now that i’m looking more, I can’t find anything that I’m really happy with. Any tips from my fellow fashionista bees? Plain veil? Cathedral length? Beaded or lace trim? Ugh so lost. Any help from ladies with tulle bottoms and/or elaborate back dresses would be super appreciated!

I had a tulle, ballgown and went the a simple tulle cathedral length veil. I liked that it just sort of blended into my dress:
I got it off Etsy for $30. If you liked the finger tip length one that was over budget, I suggest looking on Etsy for something similar as they are way more reasonably priced than veils in the store.

janeblack : https://www.etsy.com/shop/BlancaVeils?ref=l2-shopheader-name This is the shop I bought it from. I hated every veil I tried on in the store (they didn’t have any cathedral length or just any simple ones) but I really wanted one and figured I’d spend the $30 on the one I got and I’d either hate and be out the $30 or love it. Turns out I loved it, it was perfect and exactly what I’d always pictured wearing!

Yeah, I wouldn’t go with a fingertip veil with this gown. I think it would fall right before the puff from the tulle and it’s gonna create a weird line that divides your figure. I think a cathedral raw edge veil will look best with this kind of dress. The back looks amazing, so I think that should be the only bit that has the lace…. unless you can get a veil that has similar looking appliques on it but that will bring up the cost.

A cathedral plain would look lovely I think. Just make sure it’s the more transparent kind and perhaps only a single layer so it doesn’t cover up too much of the pretty back of the dress.

What a beautiful back! WOW! I would definitely not want to hide it with veil. Personally I would go with fresh flowers but then I am not a big fan of veils to begin with.

I wanted a custom veil. My dress was champagne and gold and I wanted my curl to match. Found someone on Esty to make it happen for me.

I wore a tulle ballgown and a cathedral length drop veil. I think the same would look good with your dress! Although I think lace trim would be lovely with yours 🙂

What about a birdcage veil? Personally I find them unique, vintage, and trendy! I love them! I would have gotten one myself (still considering it!) but unfortunately I’m not sure that it would match with my dress…

jerseybee1423 : if price is a consideration, then try looking at tulle veils without lace – they’ll be much less expensive than those that are lace edged (or, try etsy as other have recommended). i’d go for a long veil – either chapel or cathedral length, as i think the fingertip might hit at a weird point on your dress with the pouf. also, cathedral won’t block the back of your dress at all! i just purchased a two teired cathedral length rolled edge veil to go with my dress – i also wanted to make sure the back didn’t get lost. if you want it to be even more see through, go with a single layer. (first photo is my two teired veil i bought, second one is the single layer – you can see the differene in transparency)

You can totally make your own veil for far less than it costs to get one. I loved really short chin length veils, and the ones I saw pre-made on Etsy were in the range of $80. For $20, I got a sparkly pearl and rhinestone comb, plenty of tulle, and some thread, and made my own. The hardest part for me was getting it cut the right length, and my hair dresser friend helped me with that, pinning it to my head and then chopping away.
