    I had a 6′ for the ceremony, luncheon and couple photos, a 3′ for the start of the reception and a hair thingy that I wore once the party and dancing really got going

    Cathedral! My veil was my favorite part of my entire wedding look! I love it so much I have contemplated wearing it around the house… and it’s months now since the wedding.

    I loved my veil 🙂 we got married outside so I definitely didn’t want a cathedral veil – all the redwood needle things would have gotten stuck in it!

    I went for a cathedral veil, something I thought I didn’t want, but then I tried one on and it felt so bridal and then so right.

    Mine is close to royal length, longer than cathedral. It was custom made to reach the end of my train.

    I had a fingertip veil. Why are fingertip and shoulder lumped together in the same poll option? Why are there so many different lengths lumped into pairs? Is it for two-layered veils? Mine was a single-layer fingertip.

    I initially thought I wanted fingertip but ended up going with cathedral because it just felt SO bridal to me.

    @renwoman:  My trick: There is a bench just to the left off camera. My mother stood on top of the bench, held my veil up and let it fall. Meanwhile my photographer snapped a billion shots. It took two tries to get the perfect, natural looking photo.
