To me, most all veils look the same, barring length. I tried to make a quick decision, order it, and be done with it. 

There are so many other things to take care of and veils are beautiful almost 100 percent of the time, so don’t stress! :).

Go with a simple classic cathedral and you can’t go wrong.

I wanted a catherdral length as well and decided against a blusher…why? Because I honestly think my dad would mess up putting it back and then I would be there smiling and having the blusher standing straight up and of course Fiance and Groomsmen wouldn’t say anything because they would think it was funny. In short, I had an irriational fear of me standing through the whole ceremony while my blusher stood straight up like I was being electrified. So thats how I figured out I didn’t want a blusher. I also figured I didn’t care about any sort of edging on the veil because its something I never notice so I don’t think anyone else would (plus that cost more!). I like have some shine and glimmer to things so I decided I wanted a veil with crystals scattered throughout it so they would catch the light from every angle!

…and that is the story of how I decided on what type of veil I wanted. Good luck!

@Hippos:  I love this.

I decided against a blusher because I’m clumsy enough as it is, especially in long dresses- I really don’t need anything blocking my line of sight and making it worse. Plus I really want a clear view of FI’s face when I walk in.

I also kind of think they all kind of look alike other than length and whether it’s a mantilla or not. I always wanted a mantilla, but then we couldn’t find one to match the lace in my dress, so I ended up with a super-plain cathedral length (not that I ever wanted a cathedral length veil, but it gave my dress the extra drama it needed, being very simple and all, for the church).

I just wrote about this on the blog! 🙂 I’m in the same boat — there are so many options that its overwhelming. I’m sticking with something simple and cheap, though, and I’m actually considering making my own now (which is just insane).

@Willow1991: If I ever get out to the city to buy stuff on the cheap I’m gonna give it a shot but I’m talking a reaaaaally basic two tier cut edge kinda thing. It probably won’t work and I’ll probably end up ordering something online! 😛

I looked at them and didnt like any of them. Plus the PRICE really turned me off of them. I decided to do a haircomb instead. Found some very beautiful ones.

Good luck!

Though what you could do is narrow them down little by little.  From 20 to 10 and so on. Thats how Im doing decisions on alot of mine. I ask myself if I would wear this haircomb or that one. Pick one,etc,etc. And then when its really hard, I ask the bees! lol ITS HARD! I know.
