Veil Help!

(8 Posts)

I'm getting married in December this year and I've found my dress. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with some recommendations of veil styles that would compliment the dress?

I tried a veil on in the shop when i went back and i love the length, but just not sure it works with the dress (or does it and i'm overthinking?). I'm totally clueless!

Thanks in advance!

I'm not an expert in veils, but your dress is stunning!!

Hi, I'm no expert either but FWIW, i think that's the best length of veil for that train as it doesn't cover too much of the train. Perhaps though a softer edge to the veil like a scalloped edge, or lace edge or even just a thinner ribbon might go better and be less of a contrast?

Your dress is stunning! I'm in the same dilemma if it's any consolation, I think my veil is now too long confused

Thank you all! I’m going back next weekend so will try a softer edged one (then look on eBay because veils are so expensive) smile

I can't seem to find a decent picture but my veil had really fine bearing on it, it was slightly sparkly but not blingy, I had loads of detail on my dress and didn't want to overpower it.

Your dress is fabulous.
I would go with a single full length veil with no trimmings or embellishments.

Thank you all for your help! She's sent me some photos of a plain single layer with a slight curve on the bottom, so i'm going to try that. Something simple i think is the way forward!

Thanks again and i'll try and get a picture at the weekend and let you all decide for me :D
