    I'm a little confused...

    I have the dress, and I want a veil (honestly, when else are you going to get to wear a veil??) but I don't have any idea how to shop for one... How will I know if it will look good with the dress? I don't want to take my dress shopping with me, and I don't know what I'm doing with my hair yet. I don't plan on wearing the veil for anything except the ceremony and some pictures, so I also want either little clips or a hair flower.

    But how in the world do you shop for a veil??

    Sorry if this has already been posted - I checked, but didn't see anything.

      Well I think it kinda depends on what kind of veil you want - I think there are some that go good with pretty much all dresses.
      I would just go to bridal shops and try on a bunch then see if you like a certain kind. Also what kind a veil you like might help you decide on your hair-do. Maybe bring a photo of your dress to show the sales ladies for advice on how to match your dress. Good luck!

        I was lazy and just bought the one that matched my dress at the bridal salon. I know that a lot of places will let you order samples. Good luck :)

            I was lazy too.. I went to this website:Bridal Veil: Standard fullness, 1 layer, elbow length, fine embroidered edge, 29-inch length (thats actually the veil I got). I ordered the color swatches first (free) and then I matched them to my dress and then I ordered that veil in the color I thought was best. Super easy and affordable

              I got mine at the bridal shop too. It was easy cause I knew it went with the dress. Nadine's suggestion looks like a good one if you don't want to take your dress to the store to match colors.

                Where did you buy your dress? They should have veils there for you to try. If not, the suggestions from the other ladies work too. I just ordered my veil from the bridal shop I got my dress at. They knew which dress I had picked and so recommended one that matched perfectly. It was a 2 tier (1 short tier and 1 cathedral length tier) and the cathedral length portion was attached by hidden velcro so you could remove it and just have the short veil for part of the evening afterwards!

                  The veils at the bridal shop are SOOOO expensive! $200-$300 for a veil? I plan on ordering mine online, lol thanks for the link!

                    Here's some other sites I found for alternatives to the bridal shop veils. There is no reason a piece of fabric with holes in it should cost 200-300 dollars.
