I have a similar dress, I have a cathedral length veil. I actually just got my at the thrift store and it matched my dress perfectly so I got lucky. I think cathedral length veils look amazing with ball gowns and since yours have a lot of detail on the top of it a plain one would be perfect.

I think a simple cathedral veil would look lovely. or if you are more daring you could go bubble veil which could look awesome with the tulle skirt!

Personally, I feel like if you feel like your dress is a little simple or a slimmer sillhoette, you go with something dramatic like a cathedral or chapel length veil. But since yours is dramatic in and of itself I’d choose something simpler… elbow length maybe?

I narrowed things down based on what I hated…I don’t like super long cathedral type veils so I knew that was out, I don’t veils with lace on the edges, so that was out too, but also didn’t like unfinished edges. Can’t stand veils like Kate Middleton’s either that just laid flat on your head.

So I wound up with an elbow length veil with a thin satin trim, and major, major volume (it’s huge, it’s almost 80s looking but I LOVE it) to mimic the fullness at the bottom of my dress (I have a mermaid). I also opted for a a blusher, because I tend to be old fashioned/traditional and I liked that element.

I’m also kind of plain so there’s no beading, crystals, etc on it.

@jolie0119:  What you want sounds like what I want too. I am a ball gown wearer, and was thinking a cathedral 2 or 3 tier with the volume at top as well. I’ll be interested to see if anyone posts a pic!
