Hi everyone! Deciding on what kind of veil/length of veil to match with my wedding dress. I’m obsessed with the back and wasn’t sure if a veil would take away from everything going on back there . The front is very simple/boat neck. I’m afraid that if the veil is too long, the lace and pearls at the ends will be lost. Pictures of similar styles would be greatly appreciated! Thanks all 🥰
I would wear a fingertip length veil with no lace or embellishments. If you get one that’s thin enough, it won’t skew the view of the back of the dress. I think that anything longer or with lace will take away from the simplicity and elegance of your dress. Beautiful gown by the way!
I love the back of my dress as well, I’ve decided to go for a fingertip length veil that’s pretty see through that’s edged with pearls/crystals to match my dress. My hair is in the way of course but you can still see the back of the dress, and I’m only going to be wearing the veil for the ceremony anyways! Our dresses are a little different style, but I feel like your dress would look beautiful with or without a veil!
The back of my dress was my favorite part, so I decided not to wear a veil to really show it off! I did wear one for some photos to capture the token "veil photo" . If you do decide to wear a veil, I would go with a fingertip veil so the bottom of your dress is not covered.
I don't like veils, but if you do like them, I agree with everyone else that suggested a thin fingertip veil. It will be thin enough that you can see the back of the dress, but not too long to where it will cover up the details on the bottom of your dress.
I bought 2 veils. One fingertip with beaded trim. One royal cathedral plain, extra wide. Both are lovely. The fingertip is pretty but make me look kinda short and the long one looks so great as photo prop 😉 I think you never know until you try and take pictures from different angles, then you decide. Order somewhere where you can return, so you can choose.
I don't like veils so i would say no veils haha but that's my preference. if i were you i would try different options before you decide. for instance hair clips or headband. i tried on a veil and i didn't like it on me. i tried on a birdcage and didn't like it on me either.
I'd either go veil-less or with a plain tulle veil (so you can see your gorgeous dress). You could choose a finger-tip length so everyone can still see all the details of your train, or you could go with a veil that's longer than your train for a dramatic look!
