I am thinking of using a dress with long sleeves or 3/4 sleeves in lace because i really don’t like my arms! But I’m getting confused as to how the veil will look. I’d like a fingertip veil. Not longer as I’m 39 and it may look too much! Any opinions or brides which have used the same? If you have pictures it’d be great!

@cjfs: I’m wearing a 2-part dress that consists of an overdress with long lace sleeves, and a spaghetti-strap dress. I wanted the long sleeves partly because we’re having a pretty traditional Catholic wedding, and also because I’m not a fan of strapless in general and preferred a little more coverage on my arms. I initially got an elbow-length veil, but I decided to go with a lace-edged cathedral veil instead, again because of the church setting.
For the reception I’m planning to remove the veil and replace it with a fascinator, and remove the overdress and just go with the spaghetti-strap dress. I thought about switching for a shorter veil, but then I found a fascinator I’m really excited about and decided to go that route. I don’t have photos of the front of the gown with me wearing it, but here are a couple that will give you a general idea, and a sense of the veil:
