I thought I didn’t really want a veil, but I’m rethinking that a little bit as it recently dawned on me that my wedding is my only chance to get to wear one…
I have no idea what goes with my dress…But I love cathedral veils as well as the ones with the lace around the edges. Also, I want to wear it low on the back of my head prob under my hair so the lace thing may be out… (which it might clash with my dress anyway?)
Please recommend something!!

If the bodice has lace on it, definitely go with the lace. And I am always a fan of full-lengh veils. However, that might look better a little higher on your head.

@Georgia Bee: I agree with you , Kate depending on the embellishments on your wedding dress if they are beads, lace, or other go for a veil that is full length kind of a like a Mantilla veil.
Your dress looks simple and elegant not to busy so in my opinion a full length veil would be beautiful on you.

I think you could definitely wear a long veil with your dress, and it could take lace/embroidery/beading easily.
Have you tried any veils with it? That’s really the best way. I knew I wanted a lace edged veil, but I thought I wanted a normal style veil, with the blush that comes over my face, until I tried a mantilla style, and just loved the way the lace framed my whole dress.
Re positioning on your head, you can wear most veils in most places, just remember that the higher up it is, the more it will fall over your shoulders towards the front. If you want your shoulders bare and the veil behind, wear it low.

The dress doesn’t have lace, but it is beaded…. I wish I tried on veils with it because I don’t know how to do it now except to buy them and try them on with it. lol

You could just go buy some tulle at a fabric store and play with it to get the general idea of a veil, rather than spending lots of money. I also saw some ultra cheap veils at JoAnn Fabric–you could get a plain one to get the idea before you buy an expensive embellished one.
Or you could ask the bridal salon if you can try on the sample dress with veils. If you are going to buy from them, they would probably let you do that. They have some veils with beaded trim that might work instead of lace. Although I don’t think lace would look bad with your dress!

@AClaire: I might get some tulle and play around with it…Thanks for the suggestion. I would go to the store and try on a sample…but I got my dress from a consignment shop.
