I am still on the hunt for the perfect veil for my dress. It’s looking more and more like the matching veil that Hayley Paige makes for my gown I won’t be able to get due to the disputes between her and JLM Couture (and frankly, I don’t really want to give them any more of my business), so it’s back to the drawing board! I’m still considering a veil with lace trim or some sort of bling, but my dress has a very particular style of eyelet lace (I posted a close up) so I’m being cautious with what I choose. Choosing a veil can be tough! 😂
I am also torn on finding a veil for my dress! I was originally planning on a fingertip length, since the train on my dress is so long and detailed, but I'm now considering a cathedral veil. I'm (finally) going to try on cathedral veils with my dress at a bridal salon next week! Is there a bridal salon near you that has your dress in stock, that you can go and compare veils next to your dress to see how they look? You could also look at veils that maybe have a thin beading along the edge instead of lace? Lace may be difficult to find one that matches with your dress if it's not the one that's specifically designed for your dress, but beading should be easy to find!

Omg, I’m so glad that I’m not alone on this! I too am still struggling with the length because of it being a beach wedding and because of the train on my dress! I’m still leaning towards cathedral as I want something dramatic, but I think your beading recommendation is another possibility since I did see a couple that I liked. I’m going to have to do some research with various bridal salons to see what they recommend and if they have my dress ☺️
I had the same struggle! I really wanted to wear a veil, but none of the ones I found were “right” for it. I finally just had one custom made. If you know what you want, but can’t find it anywhere, definitely consider a custom veil!

You are definitely not alone in the veil struggle! Cathedral on a beach would be beautiful!! I did a Google search for beach weddings and cathedral veils, and there were some gorgeous photos. You could always remove the veil after the ceremony (many people do this even without a cathedral veil). But the beading around the edge would give it enough decor to where it's not totally plain, but not too much detail to where it takes away from the dress. The original veil that I was going to wear with my dress was a plain veil with a thin line of beading (here's a picture of the one I was going to wear), and I thought it added just enough detail. Here's a few quick photos.
Also, if you can't find the right one in a store, you could always ask a seamstress to custom make one for you, either with lace or beading!
Blanca veils. Look her up as she does custom veils for a good price.
