Gorgeous dress! I think you could go with almost any kind of veil. The only one that jumps out at me as being not so great for this dress is the mantilla with the lace border that lays across the head…that may be a bit much with the beading, but if you like it, go for it! I think a fingertip veil would look totally classic and timeless with this dress, so that gets my vote. I think you could go plain or lightly embellished. Up to you! Welcome to weddingbee!!

Welcome to the Hive!

I would just stick with a simple single layer, or for alittle more drama, go with a simple drop veil.  Beautiful dress!

I love your dress!! I think something simple that won’t distract from the wonderful details of your dress would be nice. Like mudbug above, I’d go for a soft looking fingertip veil. Probably plain or with very very small and delicate diamantés.

As for shoes: I wouldn’t worry too much about them showing. Go with what you think looks good. I’m going for coloured shoes and want them to be seen so will probably have my dress 1/2 inch or so off the ground.

I think you would look amazing with a light pink/peach coloured shoes that match the bow of your dress!

P.S. You have a fabulous figure!

I think a simple, light tulle veil would work great. I mean, just a few layers of tulle for the effect and some volume, but nothing crazy. I also agree you just want to avoid a veil that has a ton of conflicting details.

If you want to wear a higher heal and not have the shoes show, you could add a piece of lace to the bottom or ribbon like that on the dress.  But I think alittle pink peeping out would be cute also.  Try some shoes on with the dress of a similar heal and see if you like it.

I just logged in so that I could tell you that your dress is my favorite dress!!!!!!!! Funny story about it, I tried it on this last October and I was soooooo in love with it. It was the champagne color, which I would have rather had in ivory but they said they could give me the sample for $599 since it was discontinued. I kept thinking, this really looks familiar to my future sister in laws which I LOVED!!! I thought, I want this dress but I better think it over. I went home and looked at my fsil’s wedding pics and, Ahhhh it was the exact dress!!! I was pretty bummed because it is seriously my FAVORITE!!! Sure I could have worn the same dress but I wanted something different since she had just gotten married a yr or two before. Also, she said I could alter hers to fit me but I felt bad about that so anyway I LOOOOVE your dress!!!!!!! It looks amazing on you and really makes me wish I would have just worn my future sister in laws. By the way she just wore a simple, plain ivory fingertip veil with a flower in her hair and looked great. I wish I had a pic on this computer to show you!!!

Let’s see the back! I can never make decisions about veils without first seeing the back of the dress… 🙂

I would go for a fingertip veil. The back of your dress is gorgeous and you don’t want to over power it! What is a drop veil? Is that where the veil just lays on the back and goes straight down? If so, it will cover your corset. I wouldn’t do that 🙂

EDIT: Nevermind, I looked up images of “drop veil”. One of those seems fine to me!

i would also do a finger tip veil.

but i wouldn’t go any shorter than that. i think that elbow length is kind of outdated… but that’s just my opinion.
