    I would go with a fingertip length veil.  It gives you a more formal and elegant look without covering up the details of your pretty train.

    I would say definately a cathedral or royal, but in a simple style.

    @Mrs Hedgehog: Wow, gorgeous! You will be a show stopper with that train 🙂 I prefer a plain layer tulle with a raw or pencil edge the same length as the train of your dress. The detail of your dress will show through and the edge of the veil won’t break up the beautiful lines of the train like it would with something shorter. The cathedral veil at DB by Vera Wang might work if you attach it lower in your hair (it costs $148 I think…)

    Honestly, the back of your dress is SO FRICKIN GORGEOUS, I wouldn’t wear a veil at all!  But if you definitely want one–get one that is very sheer and also very short (shoulder to elbow).  I wouldn’t want anything that would cover the back of that dress up!

    I think to create a more formal look, shou should always go for a veil that’s longer than your train. but this is one hellava beautiful train, so go for something extra transparent/simple. 🙂

    The back of your dress is STUNNING! It compliments your body very well too- I’d opt for waist or finger tip length as not to cover too much of it up 🙂

    I would want a veil as long as that train. If you’re gonna go all out–you should REALLY go all out. Look on Etsy for some that would maybe be priced lower than those in the store.
