A simple elbow-length or fingertip-length veil would look great with that gorgeous gown.

Two tips if you haven’t thought of it already:

1.  Decide if you want it to go on top of your head, or underneath a bun of some sort if you’re thinking of an up-do.

2.  Are you planning on wearing the veil the entire time, or just for the ceremony and taking it off for the reception?  This will factor into choosing a style that looks good with or w/o a veil.

Good luck!

It also depends on what style or theme your wedding is… and what the attendants are wearing… A birdcage veil would be pretty depending on the other variables.

I was thinking with that gorgeous dress- maybe a pretty floral piece- a few orchids  or a bird cage veil like MsIndecisive suggested.

Some brides feel that the veil is what really makes them feel like a bride…when else do you get to wear one?  So go for it.  I took mine off for the reception, too, so everone could see the dress in more detail.

Bridal shops offer the most convenient option, but almost always over priced (at least $100).  I was a sucker and bought mine for $200 at the bridal shop, then was in the downtown fashion/fabrics district looking for other accessories and saw my exact veil for $30!

Also, do you want just a veil, or a tiara or headband of some sort, flowers, pins?  There are so many choices!

You can always go to a shop to try some on to visually see what you like, then look for them online.  Or go to your nearest fashion district for the deals.
