Beautiful dress!  My dress also has a long intricate train.  My veil is cathedral length with finger width satin trim.  It is very sheer and soft and you can see the detail in the skirt right through.  I’m a detail freak so I think a veil with beaded trim would be beautiful with your dress as long as the material is very sheer, but a plain one would be lovely too! I went to a bridal accessory shop that had a huge selection.  Sometimes they have more options and the salespeople know more about the veils than at a regular gown shop.  Good luck!

The store I went to had tons to choose from and the salesperson was very knowlegeable.  I brought in a picture of my dress and she helped me pick out some simpler sheer ones to try. I could tell when I tried it on that my dress would show through.  She told me I could even take the sample veil and try it on with my dress if I wanted. I think they are eager to work with you at accessory shops because so many people just buy from their gown shop. Online might be harder since you can’t tell exactly how sheer it is. Mine is Toni Federici, you probably can get them online.  Not sure where you are located but the shop I went to is Sassy Chic Boutique in Red Bank, NJ.  You may be able to order from them online.  They had beautiful things there, hair stuff and jewelry, too. The only thing that was a little tricky was the lengths.  What my gown shop called cathedral was inches off from what the accessory shop called cathedral.  Definitely have the length of your dress train in inches ready when you order.  They had to order me a custom length to be a little longer that my dress train.

For you I would get something very sheer and simple with maybe just some light beading on the edges to tie into the look of your dress but not compete with it.  As far as the length goes I would get the cathedral length.  Not only is it awesome for some "flying veil" pictures, but it will extend slightly past your train so it will just flow right into your dress.  If it was shorter, it would just stop somoene’s eye to like the middle of your dress or your elbow.

my cousin also wore an enzoani dress with lots of ruffles/detail in the skirt like your dress, and she opted for a veil with crystal embellishment along the border (the same length as the one you have on in the picture above).  i thought it looked great and didn’t take away from the beautiful dress.

how about going a little bit shorter and doing an elbow length veil?
