Veil color with Ivory dress?
I am wearing an ivory dress and would like to know opinions on what shade veil to wear. The ivory veil looks "dirty" to me, is it OK to wear a white veil? I'm doing a single layer, so it will be very sheer.

I am also planning to wear an ivory wedding dress.

When I tried on an ivory wedding dress with a white veil, I could barely notice the color difference.

Since the veil is sheer, I don't think anybody will notice the color difference.

Hope this helps!

Although I am not wearing a veil, I discovered that I prefer the look of a "diamond white" veil with my ivory dress more than a stark white veil, but the difference is really subtle. If you liked the way it looked, go for it.

If you have an ivory dress go for an ivory veil if you have a white dress go for a white veil. The tulle is sheer but where it is gathered onto the comb you will find the colour is concentrated

If you choose a plain edge veil white, diamond white, and eggshell should all be fine. They are very sheer so the color difference will be minimal except at the comp where the veil will be gathered and the color more concentrated. If that area is disguised by your hairstyle it still shouldn't make a difference.

If you are looking at veils with an edge (pencil, satin, lace etc.) it would be better to go with eggshell or diamond white. The white may be too much of a contrast. Good Luck.
