    Your second pic isn’t showing up :/ but the one that is posted looks nice to me. Granted, it’s very similar in length to mine. Lol

    ETA: Okay it’s showing up now. I still prefer the first, like you. It does look shorter…

    P.S. Can’t you buy one from the store and not have to order it? If that calms your fears.

    The first pic the veil looks better. I think I see where some of the length difference comes from. Unless it’s an optical illusion, the second pic shows the veil placed higher in your head. If that’s not the case, and it is truely shorter, you didn’t get the one you ordered. You got an elbow lenght, and wanted fingertip. I would contact where you got it from and get it replaced.

    @ashlee2103: I think white would be okay, simply because it’s so sheer. People can’t really discern a difference with veils unless they are really long or really full, IMO.

    I really like the one in the first picture. The little extra length looks really nice. Beautiful!

    this video says to go with a veil that is well past the hips.  Anything that hits at the hips or shorter tends to shorten and widen the silhouette.  it starts at about 1.18

    this is a good one on measuring veil length to see where a veil will fall on you.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWrrQJpf3xo

    i would go with at least a 36″ veil.

    i think you ordered a elbow length veil.
