    Second, DEFINITELY. I think it looks more elegant.

    I prefer the longer veil on you. At the end of the day, you need to pick what you feel most comfortable with.

    Longer.  However I think if you’re open to it, you should look into a fintertip-length bubble style veil.  That’ll be a blend of the pouf, but a classy and grown-up version of the pouf while giving you the length that you prefer.

    I actually don’t like either, but the 2nd is closer to what I have in mind.  I think yours needs to be longer, and end around where your dress splits into the skirt, if that makes sense.

    Of the two, I’d go with the second, but honestly neither of them avoids poof.  If you’re concerned with not wanting to look princessy or poofy, have you considered something with fewer tiers or less gathering for a sheerer look?  Maybe a mantilla, or a single-tier veil with a narrower width at the gather?  Beading, embroidery, lace or a ribbon edge could make it more unique-looking, since you mention that as a concern about your veil candidate #2.

    When I was looking for veil ideas, the following websites were really helpful:  http://www.weddingveil.com/ for all of the pix of different length, tier, gathering & edging options (as in pix of all of the variations of their veils on actual people and from a variety of angles), and http://www.veilshop.com/ for their style guides and video library.  I didn’t end up getting my veil from either site, but they were still super-helpful in figuring out how different veils looked and which styles suited me best.

    Of course, if you really love veil #2, you should go with it & not worry about what any of us think.  It’s your taste that should carry the vote for your wedding look.  Smile

    I much prefer the second one.  The first one is way too poofy and also I don’t like the sparkles on it or crystals – whatever they are.

    I prefer the second one. Plus it sounds like you are more confortable with it too!
