Dress and Veil color dilemma! Help!

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies,


I'm feeling a bit panicked right now. My dress is an off white/diamond white and is gorgeous. Unfortunately, it still isn't in and I was afraid that I would run out of time so I went ahead and bought a veil. My bridal consultant insisted I purchase an ivory veil because a white veil will obviously be very white in comparison to my dress. It's a lace trimmed fingertip veil and after seeing many photos of previous brides, I'm afraid that the color difference will be noticeable! Has anyone purchased or worn an off white dress and ivory veil? Do you have pics? Am I worrying for no reason?! I am feeling a bit crazy right now! Help!

Off white is darker than diamond white. It is better to wear a veil lighter in shade than darker if it doesn't match the color of your wedding dress exactly. I have personally seen white veil with darker shade dresses and it looks gorgeous. I personally would not match the veil to my dress unless it the color is really exceptional. White veil with any color wedding dress as long as it is close to white or has a combination color with white/off-white. There is a reason you feel uncomfortable, go with your gut. Go white! I make veils and assist in wedding color coordinations and programs.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
