I just got a call last week that my dress has arrived! Eeeee!
I had been putting off really looking for veils until I had the dress, so I would be able to see the complete picture. I’m torn though on what kind of veil I should get. There’s a big band of wedding around the natural waist, so I sorta of think the veil should be short so it doesn’t cover the banding. However, I also think I could probably get away with a longer veil as long as it was much longer than the banding.
Any opinions? Short or long? I really don’t like birdcage veils, so that’s out.

Since the train is so long and dramatic, I think a fingertip-length would be pretty

@All In: So you think it would be okay to cover the banding?

I think you could either do a short shoulder length veil that stops before the banding or a longer veil that covers it. I would avoid an elbow length veil that would end right where the beaded band is as that would be a little distracting. However, a longer veil- say fingertip or even cathedral would look very nice. Most veils are very sheer so you can see right through them so you would still be able to see that beautiful detail. I would avoid veils with too much detail if you’re worried about them detracting from the detail on your dress. Maybe a raw edge veil or something with very delicate beading around the edge would look nice.

I second fingertip-length – it is so classic and would look great with that dress. I would go for raw edge to avoid distracting from the beaded band.
