That’s a very pretty dress!  I have a dress with a similar silhouette/feel to it and I’m thinking a 2-tier fingertip length veil (cut edge).

Im a huge fan of cathedral – i feel that other lenghts, especially fingertip, fall at an akward length and bring too much attention to the wrong things – the focus should be on the dress (well, on you first, but you get the point) and i feel that a cathedral adds to the dress rather than detracting from it.

I tried every length and ended up with cathedral as it was the least distracting and didn’t hit me in an odd place.  I also got a birdcage to change into for the reception.  Your dress is elegant and I think most veil lengths will look good- just get whatever you like best and feel good wearing.

i think fingertip would be pretty. especially for a small wedding, cathedral might be a little too much.

I think for a slimmer dress sillhouette like that, a one tier cathedral veil would look lovely. Beautiful dress, btw! 🙂

For photo purposes I LOVE cathedral veils.  I’m going with a shorter bubble veil though… it just matches my dress better.

What a beautiful dress! I think you could go a lot of different ways with a veil, depending on what you feel like. How about waltz length? That way you wouldn’t trip over a cathedral length veil, though I agree with the others that it would be very pretty.

I’d go for a 1 tier, cut edge cathedral veil too. I’m doing one in a drop style. I feel like the drop style is so much flatter and less poof that other styles and it really gives you a veil without the hassle of a huge poofy veil.
