How about keeping it simple – a single layer waltz length veil, or a long drop veil with no adornments. if your hair is in a low chignon you can wear it just above it and look lovely.

I would second the waltz length, or just enough to reach past your train.  But then again, I love veils! I am much shorter than you (5’1") and my wedding dress store kept trying to put me in a fingertip length veil, which I thought totally cut me in half. 

I am doing 2 layers, the bottom layer cathedral length 72" wide on bottom and 24" wide on top to make it very sheer.  This layer is removable for after the ceremony.  The top layer is a 24" that will reach just past my hair that will be down, standard fullness. 

May I also suggest occanseydesigns.com.  There costomer service is awsome, and you could design your veil to a custom cut like mine is. And the price is resonable, especcialy compared to dress stores.

My friend just wore this exact dress at her wedding – and she wore a cathedral length veil, no adornments, very simple, cut edge veil.   It looked amazing w/ her low chignon.  Highly recommend.  So elegant and timeless.
