    @PrincessBride27:  I love both of those veils and think they would look great with your dress (which by the way is stunning)

    I love horsehair trim veils (my dress has horsehair trim on the skirt). I think a veil like that would be stunning, just enough detail but the trim is so clean and chic that it won’t be too much with your dress.

    @PrincessBride27:  Are you now thinking about a drop veil?! I adore those. 🙂 I think thr 2-inch horsehair-edge veil would look better (somehow it looks more softer and subtle to me).

    @PrincessBride27:  I don’t think either of those veils will be “too much” with your dress, however, I do think a raw edge veil with some crystals on it will be even more flattering with it. My bodice was very detailed like yours. The lace edged veil sort of took away from my dress but the edges on the photos you posted I don’t think will take away from the bodice. I ended up going with a raw-edge veil with single crystals scattered throughout the veil. It enhanced my dress.

    @PrincessBride27:  A drop veil is the second veil you posted in this thread (think Princess Grace Kelly/Duchess Kate Middleton). I copied and this from PolkaDotBride since it’s well-stated and very apropos:

    Starting off with my current favourite, the drop veil. Made famous by Grace Kelly and more recently Kate Middleton, the drop veil looks like it was softly dropped on your head. Using only one layer of tulle, the veil is normally made without a comb, though the veil may be secured with hair pins or a hat pin and the veil can be cut to any length (but is normally at least elbow length).

    The drop veil can suit brides who don’t want a “poofy” veil and would rather a simple whisper of a veil. It also suits more elaborate gowns as it’s not “competing” with the design of your gown.

    I think either the 2″horsehair or the pencil-edge would look lovely with your gown. Both have slightly different looks, but they still compliment your gown without being too OTT or distracting.
