This is my dress. I love it! I have been debating wearing a veil (just don’t like them much..) but my FH says he really wants me to wear one. He has no preference on the length, (though he doesn’t like blushers) and has not seen my dress.
I am very petite (4’11) and am afraid a veil may make me look even shorter. Anyone out there have any ideas as to what veil may go with this dress and not dwarf me?
By The Way, we are having an outdoor wedding in a desert setting.

I think a simple fingertip length or walking veil would be lovely with your dress (gorgeous BTW!) Since you really aren’t a fan, you could place the veil lower for a little less drama 😉

I think a fingertip one tier veil would look awesome with that dress! not too much and the length would end at your fingertips.

@misschickpea: +1! The one she is wearing in the pic looks nice with it but since you are so petite I agree they may make you look even shorter. Have you ever tried a veil on? Try them on with your wedding heels and your dress and see if it won’t cut you off.

@christybtobe: Go with the viel. I didnt want one either, but my fiance said it was important to him. Once I found the right one to go with dress I felt like a BRIDE, and I loved that feeling. I say fingertip length. Try one with some lace, it might compliment the dress quite well

I’m 5′ tall and I’m wearing a fingertip length veil. I wanted a long one until I fell in love with the one I have. I think as long as you don’t get one that’s really poofy, it shouldn’t make you look too short or cut you off.
Since you’re not a big fan of veils, I think a simple, 1 tier, cut edge veil is probably what you’ll go for more than anything, and it’ll look good with your dress without taking any attention away from it. Something like this:

@kayrie95: Thank you for the suggestion. I may just go with that!
