If I were you I would wear a chapel length or fingertip length. It’s just my personal opinion, but I think ballet length veils would look awkward with a dress that has a train.

Have you considered changing veils or just taking off your veil for the reception?  You could try a chapel or cathedral length for the ceremony (and some fun pictures!) and then change into a pretty hair piece, a birdcage, a flower or an elbow length.

there are million options, but a beaded chapel length or fingertip length is my vote.  Hope you find just what you’re looking for!

I wore a fingertip veil and the beading on the back of my dress caught the fabric on my vail during the entire ceremony. I took it off immediatley following the ceremony even though I adored my veil! I would suggest something that dips only as low as the v part of your dress and try to avoid covering the beading all together. Or you can try something totally chic like this: http://perfectbound.blogspot.com/2008/03/short-and-sweet.html

I think a chapel or cathedral length veil would be beautiful with that gown. I think that a fingertip or ballerina length veil might create an odd line at your knee area and distract from the beautiful line and embroidery on the dress. Have you been to a salon where you could try on different veils with the gown? Seeing them on back to back could really help!

I also don’t think that a chapel or cathedral length veil would cover your gown’s detail too much, especially if it’s a simple, single layer tulle veil that isn’t too wide and puffy. 🙂 

Good luck! I hope you’ll share what you decide!

Go with chapel or cathedral for the ceremony — it will really compliment your beautiful dress and ornate train — and maybe consider being a two-veil bride and changing into a shorter one for the reception!  (Do you have any family or friends you could borrow one from, so you don’t need to purchase another veil…and can have a fun "something borrowed?")
