Hi all, I'm starting to think about what to do with my hair/headpiece. I'll do a trial sometime this year.
My gown is pretty clean and simple, so I can do an interesting veil. I'm obsessed with blue, but it's a spring wedding, so I also like the idea of butterflies in the veil. Which do you think would look better with the gown? Here's the gown itself. I plan to have my hair mostly down.
And here are the 2 styles of veil:
Feel free to recommend anything else too! There are custom designs, so I can't try them on before buying. Maybe someone can visualize it better than me!
I saw the butterflies and thought wow so pretty but then I saw the blue and gasped, that blue veil is gorgeous! However, I think it depends a little bit on what your wedding colors are- the butterflies might blend in a bit with the solid white of your gown, but they wouldn't clash with whatever color your bridesmaids are wearing, but if you bridesmaids are in any shade of blue, or any color that looks good with blue, I'd go with the blue veil. You look beautiful in your dress!

Thanks for the input! Yes most of them will be in blue, and the groom will have a dusty blue suit. But I also want blue shoes and a blue bouquet so I wonder if the blue veil would be too extra 😆

I see what you mean! I think the blue on the veil is subtle enough that it won’t be too much, but I think it might also depend on how blue your bouquet is! Since your shoes probably won’t be seen very much, and you’ll take the veil off for the reception, I don’t think it’d be too much!
Oh my gosh I loooove the blue veil!! The hue is so subtle and dreamy! 🤩
I'm leaning towards the blue because it will enhance your look without stealing the show (and I don't think it's too much blue with your bouquet & shoes)! The butterfly veil is also really pretty, but it's something I'd want to try on in person first with my dress before committing!
Amsale also has a butterfly embellished veil that's gorgeous (but pricey!):
