I went for my meeting with the seamstress for my dress alterations on Friday. All went well. I mentioned to her that I was interested in a veil. She immediately said that she thought a floor-length veil would be beautiful. This surprised me because the dress consultant had suggested a finger-tip or elbow length veil. At the same time, it delighted me because my dress inspiration moment (although I went for a somewhat different looking dress) happened when I watched a fashion show where the model had a floor-length veil. I’m curious to know what your opinion is about what veil I should choose.
If it makes a difference, I plan to wear my hair mostly down with the side peices pulled back, loose waves (I have bought a clip-in hair piece for extra body). No matter what veil I choose, I plan to switch the veil for a hair clip for the reception. I would love to hear your opinion on which length of veil suits my dress.

IMO, I think the floor length veil would take away from the beautiful back of your dress. I LOVE the details of it. I think the elbow veil would work the best. This is only my opinion, but if you want a floor length, go for it.

I agree that a floor length veil would cover the flowing detail on the back of your dress. It’s already light and flowy like a veil would be, so I wouldn’t cover it. But I’m sure whatever you pick will look beautiful because it’s what you love and that’s what counts.

I agree…I think an elbow length would be perfect. It wouldn’t cut into the design at the back of the dress and I think anything longer would take away from the beauty! At the same token, anything too short would take away from the top of the dress…which is also beautiful!

You could always do floor length for the ceremony, and have the beautiful back exposed during the reception. If not, an elbow length would be gorgeous, too!!

The back to the dress is where the drama is! Go with elbow length don’t cover it up!
