    siennabrown215 :  I am wearing a ballgown, have a drop veil and plan to wear my hair down.  I haven’t seen it but I think it will work, wear what you want and what makes you happy.

    Ballgown and a waist drop veil works beautifully. My previous dress (it turned out unsuitable and I sold it) was a huge ballgown, and I was going to wear a waist-length / elbow length drop veil , raw edge, to go with it. 🙂

    I briefly considered a cathedral drop veil, but it feels a little over the top. If your venue is super grand though why not 🙂

    I wore a cathedral drop veil with my ballgown and it worked out perfectly. The only thing you need to worry about is whether the design competes with your gown or not. 

    Here’s a few pics with me and mine:


    You could see that I had a smidge of make-up transfer on the veil but the reason for that was the day was particularly breezy and my veil was dancing between us the entire time (pro tip: if you’re getting married at a high point near the sea/harbour, you might want to invest in veil weights). Originally I thought my veil was going to be heavy enough to not waft around us like that but mother nature had other ideas, lol. HTHs
