Hi Everyone,
In a dilemma and need your help. Wedding is Oct 1st so your votes need to be made within 48 hours please!

I have an Oscar de la Renta dress (see my older posts for images) and need to to start accessorizing. Drop earrings in a simple stone of aquamarine (my birthstone and my something blue). Bracelet that is chic and simple....

Veil?

Hunting your dress down isn't easy hon- I just tried it and came up with a Christos an RK and an Amsale but no Oscar. Please post the pics into the threads in the future.

Hard to tell because you have the same link twice, but I'd say no rhinestones with this dress.

I liked the rhinestones. I think they're discreet enough that they work. Kinda like the shiny satin trim on the dress.

I really like the veil you posted....looks great with the rhinestones. If off sets it and I like that.

Sure. I also think it's a nice veil. But I still like the original veil from Oscar the best, so I'm hoping "choice B" (which we haven't seen) looks like that.

Your link it wonky again. There is an m before the http that shouldn't be there. I was able to see the other veil by deleting the m and copying and pasting the url.

I like the first one better. I agree with Mscushion about the Oscar veil though. It's lovely.

I have to say that I also love the veil from your picture. But really, no matter what you do will be positively stunning! I just really love the look of a veil.

I also have to say-- you totally rock that dress! :love:

I'm with the others...prefer the first veil but think it's worth considering the oscar one.

So if my Oscar fave is out (sounds like you are not considering it anymore...probably too $$$), then I'd go with the first one. It seems a little lighter / airier. Though they both seem very similar to me.

ETA: I re-read your first post and it seems like you want to add bobby pins to the first veil. You said like a bandeau. Honestly, I don't know what that will look like ... it might change my opinion on the veil. Do you have a pic of what you want it to actually look like, even if it's not the right veil itself?

I think a two tier elbow length veil would look better than the cage veil, personally. I think it may detract from the awesome dress you have.

ms cushion- the veil in the bandeau style is the image i attached most recently... it comes with bobby pins instead of combs accoridng to this etsy designer it works better in her opinion.

the one with the rhinestones- i'd request for no rhinestonse but in the same style a the veil linked with the rhinestones.

i see many of you commented on the oscar veil but i dont' remember what it looked like! double layer? what does that look like?

my goodness im just more confused than ever.

:confused:

i didn't want the longer veil that i'm wearing at all, because i don't like that look. wanted something that skims my face more but if it sounds like it takes away from the dress, then i'm just lost!

so just skip the veil? i really wanted one!

Don't skip a veil if you want one!!! You have more people voting fora veil than against it in your poll! ;-)

Is there any way you can go try on the dress one more time with a blusher veil? If you do that and like it, then I'd say go for it! Can you get one of those veils you're considering and send it back if it doesn't work, or is it always custom/no return?

I vote for a simple veil. I like long veils, honestly. But I don't typically care for rhinestones because they don't always photograph well.

hi ms cushion! sadly they don't do returns for custom veils, and for ready-made ones, there is a 7 day return policy, with a 20% restocking fee.

ugh!

long veils? hmmm... i wonder how i can try one on with my dress. my dress is getting tailored and i can't go try it on with my veils until mid September for my fitting. wedding is Oct 1st, so all this time juggling is insane!

stresssssssssssed....

I think the veil you posted the picture of (without the flower) would look nice :)
