Let me start my saying how utterly jealous I am you have an Amsale gown!  I think the veil looks great!

That is you in the picture? I think it looks lovely! I don’t see any problem with the veil you have on!

What if you did a birdcage veil and that way it’s there but won’t ruin the line of the dress or make you feel shorter?

Do you have a preference to veils?

I really believe that anything goes — pick whichever veil makes you happiest!  Maybe be a two-veil bride and have a fun, shorter “party veil” or hair flower?

LOVE the comb! If you are uncomfortable in the longer veil, by all means get something you feel better in, but I think it’s beautiful. I wouldn’t change it just because the elusive “they” say it doesn’t work ๐Ÿ™‚

I love the comb! I think it will look stunning with the veil and without. You should do whatever you want, I know I am. My wedding will be anything but tradtional but it’s mine. Do what you love, you obviously bought that veil b/c you loved it, don’t worry about it ๐Ÿ™‚ I think it all looks stunning on you.

Hmm… First – wear the veil you want or the comb you want or whatever makes you feel beautiful and bridal. Your photos will glow when you’re happy. I do think that your consultant has a point about the veil length and trim. A cut edge, knee length veil will add a vertical element without the cutting horizontal created by the satin edge. An oval cut or square cut (with rounded corners, naturally) would create a vertical element in the front of you as well. I don’t know if the circle cut is doing what you want it to. The comb is gorgeous. A short, sassy veil might do the trick if you want to wear a veil; it would draw attention up to your head. If you don’t want to wear a veil, wear the comb!

i think it looks great.. don’t worry. if it helps, i’m 5’2.5″ (yes the 1/2 matters when you’re my height!;) and the salon suggested a finger tip with a ribbon trim as being best for me

I have to say, I think you look incredibly lovely in the photo – I would not worry about a thing!  Smile

Let’s look at this realistically… the horizontal line that “they” speak of is across the back, right? Well, folks will likely look at you from the back for the minute that you spend walking down the isle and since you’ll be moving (and possibly escorted by a loved one) that horizontal line won’t be very “horizontal.” Once you get to the alter, you’ll likely be turned sideways facing the love of your life and the ribbon on the veil flow diagonlly (judging from the beautiful pic you posted), which shouldn’t make you look shorter, either. You mentioned your pics… are they going to be of your back? Doubt it. I’m sure the photographer will want to capture the wonderful glow on your face!

I say all of this to say that the veil looks great.

While I think that you look lovely, a longer or shorter veil may give you more height.  The way that the veil hits right where your dress flares may be shortening you.  You might also want one long line instead of the different levels (or no edging).  I’m just using reverse engineering here because I’m really tall.  I figure things that I would look for you would want just the opposite,

I think the veil that you have on looks great.  But if you have your heart set on more dramatic, then you should go for it.  I purchased a similar veil as you have on in the photo (fingertip length with 1/8 ribbon edge) but I ended up changing my mind and going with a plain edge cathedral length because of all of those photos you see with the long veil blowing in the wind.  I felt sick about it because I had already placed the order for the either veil.  But for days in a row I kept thinking about how my dress would look with the long veil and I ended up calling the store who was happy to swamp my order for the (more expensive) cathedral length.  So if you really have your heart seat on that, you should go for it.  Go with your gut!  ๐Ÿ™‚
