@An-chan:  I was going to suggest birdcage but I see you don’t like that.

Perhaps an elbow length veil would work?  If you mean true tea length – mid calf – then a fingertip veil MIGHT work depending on the style of the veil and style of the dress.

It’s hard to know without seeing the actual dress.

Search “chin length flyaway veil”. Think that’s a nice option.

@An-chan:  Oooooh… think Audrey Hepburn ala “Funny Face”

It’s actually a floor lenth veil that they had in some way secured it at the nape of her neck.  So it looks like a shoulder length from the front, long in the back.

Not everyone’s style, that’s for sure.  But I love this look.  Would love to see a real bride pull it off.

@An-chan:  I like the idea of a shoulder length or elbow lenth like these

I think elbow length as well and I love tea length dresses

I’ve got a tea length dress and my veil is elbow length, single layer, no blusher.
