I thought I wanted a cathedral length veil bc I love the way they look on other brides– so dramatic and gorgeous! But when I tried one on with my dress, it was just too much. Also I’m only 5’3 and pretty small so it kinda overpowered me. I tried on a very simple, one-layer veil that has scalloped/ lace edging. It’s a bit longer than fingertip. What are your veil choices ladies??

My Future Mother-In-Law is making me a waist length veil with a lace/pearl edge on it. I found one that length I loved at the store and it was $400 so she offered to make it.

I will be wearing BOTH 🙂 Cathedral for the ceremony And birdcage (or other modern design) for the reception. And I am only 5 feet tall. The cathedral is going to be very plain. I never thought I wanted it, but I liked how it looked. It didn’t overpower me, but made the look more romantic and mysterious even.

I’m wearing a fingertip length veil with some beading around the edge. It’s gorgeous.

I tried on several, but the fingertip ended up looking the best with my dress and figure. It may have something to do with the fact that I’m 5’3″. I really wanted a mantilla, cuz they’re gorgous!!!! but it overpowered me.

My mom actually made me an elbow length veil and a cathedral length veil. But, the day of it was too windy so I had to wear the other one. Which, is actually the reason she made 2 to begin with. SC is notoriously windy in early May and I didn’t want to have to not wear a veil at all.

Ok so the cathedral is too much and you do not like the birdcage either?
Why dont you wear an elbow length thats under your hair?
OR you skip the veil and just wear a nice clip!

Mine is elbow-length and I love it. 🙂 Have you not tried that kind yet? There are several different types.

I’m also 5’3″ and I wore a fingertip length veil. It looked perfect for my height and with my dress.

@Ugoob: I will probably wear the fingertip one I found, but the birdcage and long (cathedral, chapel) veils seem to be what most brides are wearing. Just wanted to see if there was variety in what people are choosing. 🙂
