So, I’m getting a tea-length dress – unfortunately I can’t offer you any pictures yet as the dress is still being made by a good friend, who’s a seamstress – and I know that I want to wear a veil of some sort, but I’m unsure as to what goes well with a tea-length dress. Most of the pictures and advice I’ve been able to find have been for a birdcage veil. While I think those can look quite lovely, it’s not precisely my style, and it doesn’t really work anyway since I’ll be wearing a flower crown.
Problem is I can’t find pictures of anything else! I really don’t want to look disproportionate. Once the dress is done, which should be soon enough, I could always try veils on – but how could I take a custom made dress into a bridal store to try them on? Especially when I’m not going to buy one anyway unless I run out of time, since the veil is supposed to be a sort of DIY project I do with my mom (since she didn’t get to come pick the dress out with me since it’ll be custom made).
Some reference pictures! My dress is going to look sort of like this, except shorter and somewhat less lacey:
And I’m planning to wear a flower crown + veil combo sort of like this (except my hair is a lot shorter and will be curly):
I did a whole bunch of searches, both on here and on other sites, but I didn’t find much advice on the subject, so I’m at a bit of a loss here. There’s just so many choices in veils! Does anyone have any fashion advice here? 😀 Or, better yet, pictures of various lengths of veils with tea-length dresses? Or should I just forgo a veil altogether if my dress is shorter? Help!
