HI Bees! When trying on dresses I discovered I dont like veils. Just seems its not my thing, however, I do want to wear one for the ceremoy only. I did try one on with the dress to get the overall feel and it did make me feel very bridal. So a veil it is. Now, because I think my dress is very detailed (agreed?) that I should go a simple route. But, I dont like plain veils and I think this one will go nicely. I would love your opinions and help/suggestions on styles. I think I’ve agreed on fingertip so it’s comlimentary to the keyhole back and a single tier in ivory. Thanks in advance!
Sorry, cant save pics off the Davids Bridal website. Here’s a link to the Veil…(Vera Wang 3121)

Have you considered a birdcage veil or anything shorter? Since the back of this dress is open and so pretty you don’t want the veil to cover that at the ceremony in your pictures..

I agree with you @RachelM

@RachelM: I did consider it and thought about that too – but I thought the single tier would be sheer enough to show through. I also for some reason picture a shorter veil being poofy! With the longer veil it seems it will hang and flow nicer (and blend). I think I need to try a few different styles WITH the dress. As for the birdcage, I like the look for some people, but it’s just not me.

I love the scalloped edge on the veil but I’m not sure it goes with the dress. .. .hard to tell though, I agree with you- trying it on is the best answer.

Honestly I’m usually a fan of the fingertip veil, but I think with this dress you need something like a single-layer raw-edge cathedral-length veil to really get that OOMPH factor. If you do single-layer, you shouldn’t have a problem with masking that lovely back of your dress, or the beadwork/lace. And a cathedral veil would really compliment your train.
Love your dress! : )

@Jenniphyr: +1 more vote for a single tier raw edge cathedral! I think it would really give you that true bridal feeling, particularly since you like the Vera veil.

I actually like the veil you picked. I think your dress is very pretty so you don’t need a huge blingy veil. The one you picked has a little embellishment without being overpowering.

Definitely need a long single layer veil to show the back of the dress which is one of the dresses main features. A fingertip veil will just hide it.
