    Yes, the veil should be longer than the train so it will look perfect. I did the exact same.

    I’m totally doing the same thing – in my opinion it’d look a little odd if the veil were just a tad shorter than the dress but wasn’t necessarily supposed to be (like as opposed to waltz length or something which would look like it’s supposed to be shorter).

    -Good Luck!

    I’m hoping to do the same thing, I think it looks ultra pretty where the veil goes beyond the train.

    I’m doing it.  I think it looks so pretty and romantic that way.

    Unless you were going to wear a much shorter veil, like fingertip, etc… the veil should always be longer than the train for a formal look.  That is the most classic and traditional look.

    Is it okay to wear a Cathedral veil along with a dress with no train?  I’m in love with the Cathedral veil but not sure it would work on my dress?

    yes, it will look beautiful!

    i am actually doing the same thing. my train is a little bit longer than chapel length (it’s a tiffany train) and i having a 120 inch veil. my veil is just single tier, raw edge, SUPER SIMPLE, but i love the way it flows out a little bit longer than my dress.

    GO FOR IT!

    I also saw online that if you could bustle the veil after the ceremony, so that you could wear it for the entrance or first dance @ your reception.
