    Hello Hello!

    So...I found THE dress and am completely in love with it...

    Click the image to open in full size.

    I wasn't going to have a veil...until I tried one on, and my mom just...loved it. I am completely undecided (I don't even think I am equipped with enough girly intuition to make such a decision) about - what KIND of veil to get!

    The salesperson that helped me, said I could special order my veil at my first fitting, in December.

    Should I go with a matching veil - scalloped edging, lace, beading?
    Should I go with a simple veil - maybe with some rhinestones/beading?
    One tier? two tiers? what cut? what...length?! haha...

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I think the lovliness of the dress really speaks for itself, and I don't want to take away from the dress...but...I also really want to...accentuate all the great things about it...

    I have no idea what I'm doing!

      I don't think you need a veil, unless you just want one. The dress is beautiful as it is. You could just do a hair flower or sparkly clip or something. What does the back of the dress look like?

      If you do want to so with a veil, you might consider a long, single tier, that kind of makes a train...

      Be sure to check out the vendor that Ann and Maura and lots of the other girls have used. Occancy? I think? They are MUCH cheaper than the ones in the boutiques. (But still try them on for inspiration!)

        Seeing how much my mom loved it...I do kinda just want one...even if its just to wear for photos....plus, it helps to camoflauge my arms (which aren't tip top yet)!

        The back of the dress has a coset back (I have a picture here, but its only PDF as I do not have access to my photobucket account at work)!, with the tiers (obviously). It also has a train...a small one, but its there! I think I should go with a veil that goes to my elbow...no longer...but I have no idea if, like the veil I'm wearing in the picture, it should have one tier, two tiers...lace or beading or nothing...

        I wish I was more...fashionable. LOL

          I would get a long, single tier, simple veil. One that doesn't compete with your dress.

            I agree with a long simple veil. I ordered mine from Occansey Designs. Super cheap and super easy to customize!

              I would go with a shorter viel that stays more in the back, may from your shoulders backward. When it comes all the way around it hides some of the beautiful dress.

              There is alway the do it yourself. It is SOOOO easy! and much more affordable than the bridal stores. All you really need is the glue gun, comb, lace and tulle.

              I am actually going to take my FMIL veil (which contains a piece of my FI grandmothers veil) and redo it with a different comb in a different layering method.
