If you're considering purchasing your wedding veil online, it helps to get advice from the experts. Daphne Newman has been creating couture veils for more than 30 years, so we've asked for her wisdom about which gowns pair well with lace-trimmed wedding veil, such as our Amelie Veil.
Amelie is more traditional in style, edged with lace that is delicately beaded with pearls and glass beads. This veil is actually very versatile - it compliments gowns both with and without lace. A full length sheath bias cut slip dress would make for a stunning pairing; however, this veil also is incredible with a fuller skirt gowns (ball gown, A-line, trumpet, or mermaid cuts).
If your gown is off the shoulder or has narrow strap details and/or a low back, the lace edge frames your body to create a romantic silhouette.
Surprisingly, this veil can work as a formal, traditional piece; or as something quite bohemian, thanks to the wide-peaked lace.
We love the notion of pairing either of these Lihi Hod gowns with the Amelie, as the lace on the veil highlights the lace details of the gown.
An important note on lace: There is no need to identically the lace on a gown with the lace on a veil - in fact, having different lace will add diversity to the texture of your aesthetic, and ensure you avoid the dreaded 'matchy matchy' look.
