I personally think that you should be fine with a cathedral veil… It wont be covering an intricate detail on the back and that would be the my biggest reasoning for NOT doing a cathedral

I think a cathedral veil would be gorgeous with that dress!

I don’t think you can go wrong with either length! The fingertip length in the picture of you looks really nice…but I also think a raw edge cathedral length veil would look stunning with your dress too! I think it just depends on the style of your wedding and your personal preference.

Did you have to spend a lot on your fingertip length veil? If you decide you’d rather get a cathedral length veil, do you think you’ll be able to sell the one you ordered to at least recoup some of the cost?

I saw your pictures of you in your dress in another post but didn’t comment on how great it looks on you incase you didn’t see it, whereas I know you’ll see this.

The fingertip veil (I just knew it has a 72 inch veil) looks good with your dress but as tarheelgrad98 has said I think a cathedral veil would also look good, try both and compare.

I love the cathedral veil. It will have the wow factor and won’t cover your dress.

I think either would be amazing.  A cathedral length may look nicer – depending on your venue.  I would NOT do a cathedral veil if you’re outdoors on in a non religious place.  That may not be “the rule” but it’s my rule.  I had an outdoor ceremony with a fingertip veil and it looked nice without being too formal.

@travelqueen: Ooops, I read “ordered my dress” and processed it as “ordered my veil”! 🙂 In that case, I say go for the cathedral length, definitely!! It will look amazing with that dress. You can probably find some veils with scattered rhinestones in the salons in your area, so you could try them on and see what you think. I tried on one like that last weekend…I don’t think it would’ve jived with my dress, but I think you could pull it off with yours!

I think your dress can totally stand up to a cathedral veil and you wont be consumed by the veil.  However, and I realize its not helpful, I think both totally work for different reasons.  So, do you want to swing a big veil around, or be more free?

@travelqueen:

See where you’re coming from with the wind, it crossed my mind, but hey you only live and marry once, so go for it if it’s right! I went shopping first with maids and mum and to be honest it was too much, the second time I went just with my mum and it was much better and she enjoyed it more too.

@travelqueen: Well, if it’s any consolation, I’m wearing my cathedral length veil for my outdoor ceremony in a non-religious setting. 🙂 You can always bustle the veil right after the ceremony, if you want to…the consultant showed me how it would look this morning and I loved it. I want to keep my veil on as long as possible, so I’ll probably bustle it after our ceremony!

@tarheelgrad98:

Ahh, I didn’t know veils could be bustled? How does that work?
