I bought a shorter length “bubble veil” (what my consultant called it) because I did not want to take away from the look of the back of my dress. After trying it on with my actual dress, Im not 100% on how it is supposed to sit in my hair, or how it is supposed to look. Im not even sure if I like it all anymore. So Im wondering, what do you ladies think about them, and if you have pics, could you post? Thanks!

I always think of bubble veils sitting on top of your head and looking like a lot of poof on top.
You could try a birdcage veil or a fascinator with a small veil attached to it.

I have a couple of pics I posted previously. Just google search “bubble veils” if you need more inspiration.
the last one is my veil on a mannequin

The bubble veil really isn’t my style. I agree with Anise, it feels like alot of unneccessary poof sitting ontop of your head. Like people might be paying more attention to the big poof on your head instead of your beautiful wedding dress. I feel like a birdcage veil is a more beautiful, classic, and iconic look. But thats just my personal style, everyone has their own.

@MissNoodles: The second one is what mine reminds me of! It is not quite that big, but just uneven and messy! I heard if you steam it, that it will lay down more but I am thinking about giving up on it altogether.

@MissLacy: WHAT??? NO dont’ flatten it or give up on it! I love that style so much!
Let me tell you my own story: I saw a veil I liked on Etsy, but it seemed too big and poufy for me, so I had the girl custom make it for me with less pouf. Then when it arrived I felt like an IDIOT wearing this goofy thing on my head, like it still seemed TOO big. Well I wore it around the house a little (for reals) and got used to it. Then of course I wore it for my wedding day, and now when I look back at pics, I feel like I should have gone BIGGER than the original veil that I thought was too big! LOL.
The style is very fashion-forward, and takes some bravery to wear, but it’s so fabulous!
(God I hope you’ve seen Brides of Beverly Hills)
So don’t give up on the style!
Now… having said all that, if you take it to a seamstress she may be able to remove a layer of pouf without destroying the overall look of the veil, so that’s an option too. I’ll be very very sad though 🙁

I FOUND THIS VEIL GORGEOUS, SUPER FASHION! but I confess that I personally would not use because I’m a bit more discreet … like, if sarah jessica parker would wear a dress DIVINA, she surely would with this veil, you know? if you are fashion and “secure” the look, go ahead! otherwise go to traditional error that has

I bought a 18″ bubble veil for my wedding. I had a covered back so I just wanted a little something and birdcage veils were NOT for me. I did place my veil a tad lower as I had a low messy updo and wanted the veil to be placed just above it. It worked well for me.
Here are pics:

@Barika: I love yours! You look just beautiful! Mine is about 12 inches longer than your’s I believe, but yours is sitting correctly and not uneven like the others I have seen. I put mine on again last night and I like it better on the back of my head than sitting right on top.
