Yes, you’d be fine doing this. You could also just go to a fabric store and get a length of tulle (it’s really cheap) and either a) make your own (veils are not difficult) or b) hold it up while you’re wearing your gown, to get an idea of how the length looks with it, and then if you decide you do actually want to purchase a veil, you’ll know what length you really prefer.

Bonus: if you do opt for the cathedral length, you can get *exactly* the right length for your height, the train, etc.

Yeah – if you buy them at retail, veils are wildly expensive, given how simple they are to make! I can understand not wanting to DIY one if  you want something with lace, multiple tiers, a bunch of detailed trimming, etc., but for a plain raw-edged veil? It’s just plain crazy to pay hundreds of dollars at a bridal shop for that kind of thing, especially when you’re also planning a wedding and can easily find a hundred other things to do with that money! Good luck to you!
