according to the dress folks i have talked to you should have a veil that complements and doesnt “clash” with your dress. so looking at the back of it, pick a spot where if the veil would stop there that it wont compete with the details of your dress.

i.e. a dropped waist dress should have either a much longer train, or a train that hits above the elbow. a princess type ball gown, with natural waist should have a veil that hits just below the sholders between the neckline and the waist… etc.

this is hard though – the pictures kinda dont do justice i think to the detail.

if you want to go long i would go for either a drop veil or a knee length veil since the back of your dress really does almost look like its a cathedral veil itself.

maybe a waist length simple plain tulle veil???

With that awesome train I would say elbow length. That train needs all the attention. 🙂
