The veil was the last accessory to go on. I had a cathedral length one too. What a pain it would have been to run around getting ready with that thing on! All they have to do is pin it in last minute. You could probably do it yourself if your hair stylist needs to leave

I had my cathedral-length veil put into my hair at the salon, which was almost two hours (in holiday, rush-hour traffic) away from my venue.)

I wore an A-line ball gown that had layers of crinoline in it. However, I stepped into my dress.

I had a pretty massive dress with a huge hoop skirt. I stepped into it! I had FOUR people helping, but we got it to work!

I’m also wearing a cathedral length veil, I will definitely be putting it in at the end – I can’t imagine having to walk around getting ready with that trailing behind me!  My stylist said she will show the MoH how to put it in before she leaves.

My veil was put on by my hair/makeup lady when she was done. So yes before the dress.

I am also wearing a cathedral length veil…which I adore. However, I’m planning to wait until the photographer shows up before I put it on so it will definitely be the last thing I put on. My dress is a drop-waist a-line with like 6-7 layers of material in the skirt, including tulle crinoline. Not overly poofy so I don’t expect much problem getting into it even if I did put the veil on first. I just don’t want to carry it around with me all afternoon or worry about someone stepping on it (like me – lol)

Definitely dress first, then veil!
