I don’t think that fingertip veils are dated.  A lot of people still use them.  As long as it doesn’t have a poof on top, you won’t look dated!  But it sounds like you don’t want a long veil so I might consider something else.

Woah. I love that veil. Its gorgeous. I love veils with embroidery– that is very on trend right now.

First off, I don’t think it looks dated but even if it did…

What is really important is how YOU, your gown and your character/temper look in that veil, if you look great, so be it.

To give you an example, if I dress vintage (40s) I look dated but I also look great. If I dress anthropologie I look current but also blah 🙂 So honor yourself and do what’s best for you.

I think your veil is very pretty.  I never heard that finger-tip length veils are dated… I’m actually thinking about getting one.

Mine is a fingertip.  I’m only wearing it for the ceremony, but it’s perfect.  If I picked something longer, you wouldn’t see the intricate train on the dress.

omgsh. Love your dress! If it’s from DB, you have to tell me the designer/item number! It’s gorgeous! The fit looks great on you!

Holy exclamation points…

First, you gown is gorgeous on you, and I love your choice of veil.

I am going to wear a fingertip mantilla veil. I have never heard of a fingertip veil being dated. It is all in what you want and what makes you feel the best. It is your wedding and you should wear what you want. It doesn’t matter if it is dated or not.

I wore a fingertip veil last summer … I think I looked very chic. 🙂

I actually thing fingertip veils are the most universally flattering and not dated at all.

I had orginally chose to wear a fingertip veil myself! I ran into a problem though, everyone told me to be very careful when I sat down as I could pull the veil right out of my head! After trying on a bunch, I finally chose an elbow veil and it suited my dress and me very well. I liked it b/c it wasn’t too heavy and I didn’t have to worry about ripping it from my head.

I think it’s all a matter of personal choice. What you like is just that–what you like. Don’t let anyone tell you your veil is “dated” it’s YOU!

BTW! I LOVE the picture of the veil you posted! If you do decide to go with DB choice, I think it would be perfect for your dress! Not too much on the dress nor the veil either.

Hope this helps!

My friend was married in April and she wore a Vera Wang gown and a fingertip drop veil from veilshop.com and she looked just stunning.  Very classy and gorgeous.  I wouldn’t worry about it being dated!  I love the embellishments on your veil, and I think it will be classic.  It looks like something you could pass down.

I had a butt-length (aka waltz length) and I don’t think I looked old fashioned =]
