Q. I’ve attached a photo of my wedding dress by Maggie Sottero (color shown in Pearl Rose) and unsure of what color veil I should wear. In fact, I’m even questioning if a veil would be appropriate for this dress, as I’d be afraid it’s too overpowering. I have received so many opinions and I am completely lost! I’d appreciate your input.
– Overwhelm or Appeal
A. My input is this: skip the veil. I agree with those friends who said it could be overpowering. I like the look of a flower, real or faux, or a jeweled or decorative hair comb. I had a milliner make a large, off-white fake flower with beautiful beading and attach it to a comb that could be hidden within my hair. I received many compliments and I was glad to have chosen something original.
