    Yes, it could work with the right dress.

    No, never because it will look disproportionate and compete.

    It doesn’t seem proportionate, and I think it would look odd…  :-

    Cathedral veils are all the rage right now…seems like you see them on dresses with chapel trains or no trains…and sometimes it works, sometimes not. I myself wish I could pull off a cathedral train with my chapel length dress…but I’m thinking maybe not. All you can do is try it next time you have your dress on…but I too think it might look a little off or like a cape. Maybe just get a more dramatic and full viel.

    I think it would look disproportionate and possibly the formality level between the two would look off.  Cathedral veils are very formal where tea length dresses are not as formal so I don’t know if the styles would merge well together.

    LOVE that dress.  But not with a cathedral veil.  They would compete with eachother and you’d lose the impact.

    I think it would be disproportionate and the formality levels really don’t match.  Sorry.

    I agree with  @Mrs.KMM:. Cathedral length veils are formal.  Tea length dresses are less formal.  It would seem like a contradiction.

    I think short veils look adorable with tea length dresses.  🙂

    @Ambi D:  I love both– Seperatly. Theyre gorgoues, but together? hmm.. have you tried it out yourself at a bridal salon? probably pictures together would make it a little easier for peopl to imagine and judge. But as of now, with my uncreative imagination, It just doesnt go together 🙁
