I am going to have a cathedral length gown + cathedral veil. I have no photos to show you of my wearing both at the same time because I haven’t picked up my dress. But I think it is okay to wear both. Maybe I am strange…. I find wearing a fingertip or elbow length veil with a cathedral train look odd to me 🙂

I had a cathedral train and veil, so obviously I didnt think it was too much.  And I got married in a park!

I think you SHOULD have a cathedral length veil with a train that long.  I’m with Big that the proportions look off with a shorter veil.

I’m 5’3″, wore a chapel train with cathedral veil.

This is the back of my gown. It is actually a monarch lenth (about a foor less than a royal) and rather than covering up the amazing detailing with a cathedral length veil, I will actually be wearing an fingertip lenth. My mom is making it right now so I don’t have a picture but don’t feel that you HAVE to have a cathedral length veil! Its whatever combo you like!

@toasty:  I had a cathedral-length veil, but my train was more chapel length.  Not sure if this counts toward what you wanted to see:

I’m not sure what cathedral length gowns look like, but here is my gown and train with cathedral veil.

Glad to see this was resurrected! I am thinking cat buying a gown with a cathedral train (which is plain, save for the crystallized buttons down the back) and I’m wondering if a cathedral length veil with some lace or detail would be too much. I won’t thread-jack so I’ll pose this on another post…
