    Is there any way to incorporate the matching lace with the netting and have it kind of like AnnR's veil was, just off the back and not a full looking veil that covers up your flower? Does that even make sense? I know what I mean but let me see if I can find a pic..

      i say wear the veil!! everyone always says that when they put the veil on they 'really feel like a bride' plus when else are you going to wear one?

        That dress was one of my first choices! I love it!

        I love the flower look, just really depends on how formal you want to be. IMO, veils are a little more formal.

          This is the only time you will EVER get to wear a veil, that is what made me decide I wanted one, and I was soooo happy with it. I loved my veil and it was lace.

          Here are some pics, just so you can see what my lace veil looked like.

              i love that dress!
              i would say get a different veil. a simpler one would look gorgeous with your dress, but i am worried a lace one would take over everything.
              but julieg you pulled your lace veil off wonderfully! i normally think they are too much (for me) but yours is great!

                that is such a beautiful dress. I all along thought that I wouldn't wear a veil, that it would get in the way etc... But seeing other girls pictures, I love the look and it is the only time I will wear it, so I say go for it, if that is what you want, it is your day

                    I am actually using AnnR's hairstyle. I love how you can see the flowers inderneath her veil. The problem is that the lace is really heavy, and has a lot of detailing. We put my flowers underneath 1 layer, and you could hardly see it. So, if I go that route, you won't see the flowers until after I take off my veil.

                    I will have to post a pic of the lace. I love how yours looks, but the lace I have has a lot of detail all over. It is hard to describe. FI has the camera. I will try to get a pic and post it when he gets home later tonight.

                    Thanks for the pics!!!

                      Wearing a veil is a personal preference and I originally thought I wasn't going to wear one, UNTIL i actually put one on and it was like WOW. It just completed the look to me. Oh and I LOVE your dress! So awesome. My dress is similar in that it is slimfitting and there is intricate beading and lace on the dress and I found that the simple cathedral veil is what complimented it most. It didn't over power the dress, so perhaps you could change the material and still use flowers. For me, I am a nervous person and I need something in my hands. Not sure if I will use flowers or a parasol for me as well, but I KNOW I will need something keeping my nervous hands busy during the ceremony...
