The veil I want comes in either white or ivory. The girl at the shop said with a diamond white dress to go with an ivory veil – but I’m thinking it will look too yellow and I should go with the brighter color. Any experience with trying to match a diamond white dress?

I would not choose an ivory veil for a white dress since it can possibly look dingy. Get a white veil. The color variance of whites are so insignificant that honestly no one will notice since veils are sheer, not solid.

I agree, I got a white veil with my ivory dress, and I can’t tell the difference. I think veils are usually so sheer anyway that you won’t tell that it’s not the same color.

I suggest trying the different veils on with your dress, and then pick the color that looks right to you.

How long is your veil? I think white would look better.

@ fitzly: It’s a waist length veil… Unfortunately, I can’t try it on with my dress because I’ll need to buy it (and no returns) 🙁

I found a diamond white veil (on ebay). Maybe check it out and see if you can find a comparable one. Or ask the veil shop for a fabric sample so you can see which color looks better with your dress.

White…My dress is Diamond White by Casablanca and I am wearing 2 veils… The cathedral veil for the church is White because I could not find a Diamond White once with the detail I was looking for.
Then for the reception and other photos I am wearing a shorter veil that is diamond white.
You can see a little difference with the white but that is only if you are up close and know that it is a while veil…I would be too scared that ivory would look too yellow against the white. Take some photos wearing both veils so you can refer back to them at home and see if you can tell the difference.

They sell diamond white veils at http://www.wedding-veil.com. I had a similar problem with my dress being in between white and ivory and not being able to find veils that matched. At this website you can order swatches and then they let you order three veils at a time and send back ones you don’t like. I had great luck working with them and got my veil in the right color for a good price. The only problem is that a lot of their veils are very simple and the pictures aren’t very good.
Actually I ended up waiting too long to return the two other veils I bought. I have two simple waist length veils in diamond white. MEssage me if you are interested.
