blshngbride2014:  Ultimately its your taste and preference. I think a fingertip or elbow veil would look great for this occassion. I would not go cathedral because of the venue BUT at the end you are the bride and you should select what makes you happy 🙂

Beautiful dresses and venue! I think a cathedral length tulle veil would be stunning with your ceremony dress. For the reception dress, because it has so much going on, I would just get a headpiece or flower for your hair or invest in a very simple fingertip length veil.

For what it’s worth, I had two veils: Fingertip and cathedral length (I also wore two dresses- tulle ballgown for ceremony and lace mermaid for reception and I got married at a country club and did the ceremony outside and reception indoors). I wore both veils for the ceremony and just the shorter one for the first dance and then took it off when I changed dresses.

blshngbride2014:  I think a fingertip veil will look amazing with your dess and the venue. I agree with Contri about not going cathedral. What you can do though (and it’s what I’m doing since my wedding is in a park) is get 2 veils. Use the shorter one throughout the day and keep the long one with you (get a BM to be in charge of it). Use the long one once it’s time for pics. It looks amazing draped around you and your by then hubby, flowing in the wind behind you, hiding you a little… you get my point 🙂

OMG your dresses are so pretty. And your wedding looks like it’s going to be gorgeous.  I personally only like cathedral veils…so that’s my suggestion.
