I just started booking my hair trials, and I totally didn’t consider that I have to bring my veil with me….I haven’t even started thinking about what veil I wanted!!
Any thoughts as to what kind of veil would go with my dress? Or tips on how to choose a veil? I’ve looked online and there are just SO many options, I’m getting overwhelmed.
My dress is a sheath silhouette, so I just wanted something simple, not too dramatic. Hopefully these pictures show up:
Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Also, if anyone has any suggestions where I could get reasonably-priced veils in/near new york city, please share 🙂

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.

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.

Thanks for the input so far !!
SoCalBeachGirl, I’ll probably only wear the veil for the ceremony. And the more I research, the more I think I want an elbow or finger tip length veil too! thanks 🙂
MsIndecisive, that’s a good point….it will be an afternoon church ceremony in August (evening reception), and the bridesmaids will be wearing pacific blue tea length dresses from Ann Taylor’s celebration line. While it will be semi-formal, we still want a fun, fairly laid back vibe.

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.
