I’m wearing the lovely Jim Hjelm 8810 dress this November but I’m having a hard time deciding on a veil. It’s an open back dress so I want something that enhances that, plus I want to have my face covered as I walk down the aisle so something sheer–and maybe a drop veil or something with a blusher? But what length/style/lace should I look for? There are so many choices! Any help would be appreciated!

I think a cathedral veil would look absolutely stunning for the ceremony, and then I’d switch to a fingertip for the reception. I definitely think that maybe some lace around the edge would be absolutely gorgeous and would compliment your dress beautifully.

You look stunning and lovely in your dress! It might help me and others to answer if you please describe your venue, time of day of the ceremony, etc. If you are having a morning ceremony in a garden I might say something short with a more airy feel. If an evening ceremony, perhaps a more dramatic look. Not sure if it’ll influence the decision, but would you please describe for us?

I chose mantila because your dress is lace and the back is so pretty. I think other veils might cover up the back too much.

you look AMAZING in your dress…holyyyy! I would do cathedral length for the ceremony and a gorgeous dramatic yet soft headpiece for your reception.

LOL I wish that was me, but sorry for the confusion, that’s the model pic. 🙂
The ceremony will be at 2 pm in a semi-formal church, it will be a formal ceremony but then I will be taking the veil off completely for the reception.
I like the idea of lace, but I’m not sure if it will look too busy since the dress has lace as well?

@Miss_Librarian: yea I wouldn’t do a veil with lace on the trim…definitely will be competing. I think maybe a veil with lace appliqué scattered would look amazing. My dress is all lace and my veil has lace applique.
this is exactly how my veil looks, but with another ayer of tulle under

@garden_bride: You look absolutely beautiful!! I love the length of your dress and veil (how the veil is longer) so you’ve definitely got me leaning in that direction. Can you tell me what lengths your veil & dress are? I think my dress has a chapel train.
