The top of my dress was covered in crystals and my veil (cathedral length) was also covered in crystals…my veil did get caught on my dress, but only when I had them hanging up in the same bag. Once I had it on, they never got caught on each other. I would keep trying on veils at different places…maybe it was the type of tulle used on that veil.

My veil was constantly getting stuck on the crystals in my bracelet . It was really windy so it was hard to keep it away from my wrist. My dress didn’t have any crystals aside from a ltitle on the sash but I wanted to let you know about my mishaps with my accessories

My veil got caught on the crystals on my dress and it drove me nuts. Fortunately I had only one line of crystals on my entire dress (trimming the neckline), so when I wore my bolero it covered the crystals in the back and I was able to wear the veil without issue. But as soon as I took my bolero off, I also had to take my veil off.

And yes, your dress looks to be a chapel length train. Very pretty.

Ask if the veil is bridal illusion or silk tulle. If it’s just regular bridal illusion you are getting upcharged considerably since it runs like $2/yd at the fabric store. As for it getting stuck, my veil got stuck on everything. I would go for chapel length or shorter because it’s easier to manage than cathedral.

@readbakesmile:  I actually ended up removing my bracelet for a While.  We were only outside for our first look / bridalparty   portraits , since it was winter , wedding was inside. I put bracelet back on for ceremony thrn removed veil after cocktail hour (as originally planned.) the only reason mine caught was from the wind.  Good luck !!!!

@readbakesmile:  bridal illusion is easier to work with, much stronger, better for beading edgework, and it catches less. The one thing silk tulle has is exquisite drape, it’s very delicate so there’s absolutely no poof, but it’s also very finicky to work with so you’ll be hard-pressed to find someone to do any heavy embroidery/beadwork on it. There’s also a difference in price, bridal illusion is around $2/yd and silk tulle is around $100-$150/yd. if you’re just wearing a veil as a one-time thing, bridal illusion will work just fine for you. if you’re thinking of making this an heirloom piece, consider the silk tulle (it doesn’t yellow like bridal illusion too). Is it catching around your waist?
