    I’m making my drop veil out of 72″ wide silk tulle.  Mine won’t be as long as yours (just doing a 72″ circle), but the drop on either side comes down to my fingertips.  I think anything wider for a drop veil is going to get very unwieldy very quickly, especially with how the silk tulle drapes.

    Do you have a wide train? I’m not super knowledgable on this topic, but if the veil is going over a train it should be as wide as the train (or wider).

    @minipenguin:  I went with 108″ wide for my cathedral veil (my dress has a chapel train)

    @minipenguin:  Hi there!  I’m ~5’7″, probably 5’10” or 5’11” with my wedding shoes.
