Colored dress with veil

Hi! I'm having a modified version (more modest) of this dress as my wedding dress and I would love to wear a veil that has been for long in my family but, as usual, it's withe. Do you think it would clash to much and look bad?

    Yeah adding a veil would look kind of costumey, IMHO. The dress itself is SO dramatic, that it's probably best to avoid anything else, accessory-wise besides some simple stud earrings and your e-ring!

    Out of curiousity, you are wearing the dress in the color shown? Or having it made in white/ivory?

    I'm looking at blush dresses and white veils look silly, to me. I'm leaning toward making a blush one that matches the color palette of the dress.

    For that dress have you considered a birdcage veil? I agree the dress is dramatic, and awesome, but I think a long white veil might look odd.

    I'm having the dress made in the color shown. 
    I would like to wear a veil since it is in a cathedral and I feel weird by not covering my head but if I wear I would like it to be long since I already have a tiara.

    I think using a white veil, even if it is a family heirloom, would look odd.  I understand you wanting to wear a veil so have you considered having one made in the same color as the dress, but very sheer?  I think that as long as the veil is extremely sheer tulle (hardly gathered onto the comb) and not placed over the face then it should flow nicely with the dress.

    Beautiful gown! I agree with Maggie. Do it the same color as the dress, only very sheer. It will be gorgeous. :)

    Maybe you could dye the heirloom veil to mtch the dress.

    Thanks all for your input!
    I think I'll just ask my seamstress for a blue veil and think for other piece as my something borrowed
