    Maybe try the dress on with other types of veils, and see what works with the dress. If you dont wanna cover the back but still want length, Id go with a single layer for sure

    I voted no veil.  I was initially thinking that you should go for the cathedral veil if you have always dreamed of it – BUT you are probably correct that only time where people will be seeing the full back unbustled will be while you are under the chuppah.  I honestly can’t imagine another type of veil with the dress – the back is just so gorgeous on its own.  I guess it also depends on how you will be wearing your hair?!

    If you had a one-teir cathedral veil, it will be very very sheer and you’ll still be able to see the back of your GORGEOUS dress. 

    The reason why the veil from David’s Bridal feels stiff and cheap is because it isn’t silk tulle like your dress.  If you get a silk tulle veil, it will look a lot better, more sheer, more flowy, and probably just look “more right” with your dress. 

    Good luck!

    I feel like this dress is just begging for a cathedral!  Maybe a simpler, single tier or i love the idea of drop veil!

    @pengoala:  Ohhhh a raw-edge drop veil would be gorgeous.  Not too long, not too short.  Would look perfect!

    I think the most gorgeous feature of your dress is the back….I wouldn’t cover it.  Perhaps a silk tulle birdcage? Just my opinion.

    I voted no veil because I think you should keep it simple. The dress is beautiful as it is and a veil may be overkill

    @Petite_Fraise:  Try to find a bridal salon that sells their veils outright.  OR…. order a veil on Etsy.  They have silk tulle veils.  Order ASAP.

    @Petite_Fraise:  that dress is gorgeous and i totally see what you are saying about the back of it.  that needs to be seen.

    i agree with @Miss Eagle:  a silk tulle veil would feel softer.  a single layer may work.

    when i saw this dress, i envisioned a shorter, fuller veil.  one that you can still cover your face.  how about something like this with the dress?  maybe not in the russian netting but this style in a tulle (like the first pic).

    I didn’t vote, because I don’t really have a specific thing to vote on….

    So…  have you tried your veil with your dress?  Because it may actually be that it looks great.


    Otherwise I’d suggest going with an ivory one layer catherderal, so that you can still see the detail of your dress through it.  Because you could actually take your veil off for the reception (which many do) and then everyone will be able to see your dress detail up close an personal.  But to see fair, all anyone is really want to see is your face 🙂
