Still trying to find the exact veil I want. I want it to be a cathedral veil with a blusher. I might go with a plain one because my dress does have nice lace details on the train, or I might get a veil that is longer than my train with additional lace detail.
My dress with the plain blusher veil.
The other veil I'm thinking of with the lace detail. I haven't tried this on with my dress yet though. But now that I'm looking at it, it might be too much detail.
I am wearing a fingertip-length veil with an attached breast-length blusher. It’s lined with ivory silk to match my dress and is very simple. And once it’s flipped back, the thin silk lining and layers create a pretty wave-like pattern. I originally wanted a veil that was as long as my dress was; but, my dress, shoes and hair are already quite heavy and I couldn’t find one in my salon that wasn’t covered in (beautiful) beading or lace, etc. In addition, I’ll be wearing my hair in a high, straight pony-tail- that way the back of my dress isn’t obstructed and I didn’t want anything else covering it. So, I chose to go with the smaller option! I like the way that it frames my dress and I’ll be excited to leave it hanging on a hook after the ceremony😂. Having a veil for my FH to lift over my head when they say “you may kiss the bride” was important to me. However, wearing it isn’t exactly the part that I’m looking forward to the most. I love your veil and I love the lace! Thanks so much for your post! I look forward to reading more😊! Aubrianna Abbema
I love your dress! It seems that you want a really long veil, which I love. I also love that you're looking to find a blusher veil (so romantic)! However, I see that your dress has a perfect natural break in the lace detail along the back, somewhere right below your backside. Personally, I might want to capitalize on that vacant real-estate and purchase a veil with lace, like you like, that ends somewhere between the lace florets that come off of your body and your knee. Maybe a bit longer than fingertip length? If it's simple enough (example: lace lining rather than lace throughout the veil) I think it would even be pretty if you had one of the nouveau veils that are the same length in the front and the back; although these can be tricky if you're planning to wear your hair up.
That's just me, though! I'm a bit 80's so my opinion should probably be taken with a grain of salt, haha. Thanks again and I look forward to hearing about your final decision!
I don't have a picture but I'm wearing my mother's cathedral veil. Thought it would go great for the "something borrowed/ something old" Only change I'm making is the headpiece she wore for a tiara. I'm also thinking about adding some beading to it to make it a lil more updated.
