Hmm, well the dress is just amazing, and although I am just as indecisive when it comes to what I will be wearing on my own head, I think maybe a birdcage style would look nice if you’re going to wear the bolero. Something like this http://www.etsy.com/listing/73251063/as-seen-in-polka-dot-bride-champagne?ref=sr_gallery_24&ga_search_query=birdcage+veil&ga_order=most_relevant&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=ZZ&ga_search_type=all

Hi there,

That dress is gorgeous on you! What a great silhoutte for your shape! I think a fingertip length or chapel length veil would be best with this dress for the ceremony and then once you enter the reception you can take your veil off and wear the bolero. The bolero and veil may be too much to wear all at once.

I would go with a very simple veil with a plain edge or a rolled edge. You don’t want the veil to take away from the dress, you want it to compliment the gown. 


Congratulations and Good Luck!

Without the bolero I’d agree than an elbow length veil would look very nice. Great idea on swapping veils out! You can gorgeous ones that are pretty inexpensive and achieve  different looks on that one day. That’s inspired me!

I think an elbow length would be gorgeous with your dress!  Veil with no bolero, then bolero to switch it up!

@Ms. Stallion:  I think that would look very classy. Maybe try with and without if you are able to at a fitting and see which you like best?
