I love your dress! Can you go with a single-tier chapel (or cathedral!!) length veil that is very sheer and would show your bead works even when covered?  I think it would look ethereal with your dress…

PS: what brand is the dress?? it’s definitely giving me some serious dress-regret….

for that dress, I think a hip length veil would be nice. I can’t see a cathedral veil with that dress.

I would go for something longer, the problem with a short veil with beading or design only along the edge is it creates a line in the dress, straight across your back.

@MissJK:  I think the length of that veil is spot on… you would probably want it to extend a bit (maybe 1.5 or 2 feet) from the end of your dress so that it won’t compete with those intricate details especially if you have trimmings like satin pencil edge or lace etc…

As far as what edge, I personally am not sure if a pencil edge would match your dress because they are normally made of satin and that material is just not visible on your dress… I would either go with a raw edge (if you want to make the look more modern and let and dress be the center) or crystals/beads trims to match with your dress…

Call me crazy but i think your dress has a Great Gatsby quality to it… Have you considered that looks?  It is very trendy right now…

Example:  Like Kate Moss…
