Help Finding a Veil!

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

 

Last weekend, I purchased my dress at a trunk show. It's a dress from the Essense of Australia Spring 2012 line so I don't have a pic of it. It's a fitted A Line with sweetheart neckline, full lace, beading, crystals, and some pearls. It also has an empire waist with a jewel in the center. It has a vintage romantic look to it. The pic below is the closest design E of A currently has....just to give you an idea of what it looks like. I think I want a elbow or fingertip veil with matching beading but I'm not sure. I thought something with a scalloped edge or lace edge might look nice. I wish I could try on veils with the dress. Unfortunately, it won't be here until the middle of February so I have to just picture the dress. Anyway, I'm open for suggestions. Thanks in advance!

Could you possibly go to a bridal store and try on that dress that is close with it and veils to find the right one.  I thought I knew what I wanted with my dress but when I went to try them on with my dress I found one that was completely different then what I expected.  The ones I thought I wanted didn't look good at all.

They didn't have this dress or anything like it. Maybe they'll have one similar when I go back. Or find the next trunk show so I can try on the ress again.

This dress could go with any number of veils. It's more your taste that would make the decision. Go to a store and try on any trumpet sweetheart gown and see how you feel in a birdcage vs. mantilla or anything else they have. But shop around. Veils can be very inexpensive, but you'd never know looking at the price tags in a bridal store.

Hi Ladies,

 

Thanks for your opinions. The bridal shop is actually hosting a veil and headpiece trunk show for one of the designers this weekend. I went recently and another designer has a dress similar to the one I bought. One of the consultants said I could try that on when I come in.

 

My dress has a lot of details - full lace and full beading and crystals. So, I don't want anything that will compete with it.....Fingers Crossed that I find one I like!

    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
