    Ok ladies ... This weekend has been all about getting caught up on the forum and getting caught up DW stuff that I haven't gotten around to yet.

    Now, it's veil time. I love the veil they showed me at David's Bridal when I bought the dress, but it's almost $200 -- and I just don't see spending that much.

    So I've found 2 veils for less that half that cost and would like some feedback. I'm posting a pic of my dress detail so you can see what it will be laying up against.

    I want an elbow length veil -- I've picked one that's a 1-tier and one that's a 2-tier.

    I also don't know if I should get ivory or champagne.

    Or -- should I get a plain veil w/o detailing at all?

    Here's my dress detail:

    Here's the 1-tier veil w/ detailing (shown in cathedral length but I'd be getting elbow length):

    Here's the 2-tier veil w/ detailing.

      I say the second one, only because your dress has so much detailing on it, I think the first one would take away from the dress. Know what I mean?

        I voted for 1-tier ivory. They would all be beautiful, but I'm a fan of 1-tier and the traditional ivory coloring.

        I like the 2 tier (last one) Tami. I think it will look really good with the detailing on your gorgeous dress ( this is the first time I saw it btw). Veils are so much fun and I think the bridal essential accessory. lol

        Your day is comming up quickly, you must be getting more and more excited!!

          if i have to choose, i say #2...but i think a plain veil would be best - kinda feel like less is more here....so i didn't vote.
          where'd you find decent priced veils tho? i'm still searching (and running out of time!)

            I think a 1 tier ivory would be beautiful! The detail on the one will compete with your dress, and your dress is too beautiful!

              I also did not vote, I think you should go 1 tier and plain. I personally like 1 tier though, that is what I went with. I think you need to try them on with your dress to know which one you like the best.

                I am with Julie. A 1 tier and plain veil probably will be better. The veil is there to compliment you don't want it to take away the attention to the details on your dress.

                  I think the 2 tier veil is beautiful. I would get in in ivory. Your dress is amazing!!

                    I agree 100%. The veil shouldn't take away from the dress at all, it should only highlight the dress. When I look at the second picture, I see veil right away - I think it'd be too much. I like the first one, but again, I agree - I think something with only one tier and simplified a little, even if it's not completely plain, that'd ADD to your dress in the end. :)
