    A week before your wedding,  dont tempt fate. There are ways to “bustle” a veil that don’t involve chopping anything off you could look into.

    I would not cut it! I’d be so afraid that the seamstress would ruin my very expensive veil.

    @AllieBee12:  NO!!!  Don’t mess with it.  I would hate for you to have something go terribly wrong with altering the veil at this late stage.  Do you have pics??  I would love to see it!!

    I voted keep it long!!  It will be fine.

    I would NOT cut it!  It’s a gorgeous veil, and I can only imagine how amazing it’s going to look for those “from behind” pictures where the dress and veil are all laid out perfectly.

    Do not cut it! Seriously, even if it doesn’t lay perfectly straight, like in your pictures above, it will look amazing. I actually like the clumpy veil look – it’s so soft and romantic looking – just piles and piles of tulle. Le sigh.

    @AllieBee12:  I really questioned having the long veil too, as I had a casual outdoor wedding, and I’m only 5’1….but let me tell you…it looked really cool in pictures. The beading is really pretty, I’d leave it alone. See:

    I had a chapel length veil with a ballgown and it looked great! My veil was similiar with the edging too! I still love my veil 🙂 🙂

    I was going to vote to shorten it until I saw the pictures! Then I voted KEEP IT it’s soo pretty!!  You look amazing! I think you’d probably regret having it shortened.

    Hi, 

    I’m interested in the same exact veil. How much did you pay for the cathedral length?

    Thanks!

    I also have a tulle ballgown and a Cathedral veil.  My solution to the clumping problem is to just make sure my MOH fixes it for me 🙂
