First of all, I am having a dress made, and the structure of it is dropped waist, strapless swarovski rhinestone adorned corset, with big poofy tulle skirt – ballerina/ballgown I guess it’s called? I haven’t yet picked out a veil. What length etc. kind of veil should I wear with a dress like this?
Also, I’m only having one person stand with me; what type of dress should I choose for her? My wedding will be black tie. Should I have her also wear a ball gown type of dress or what? I’m so confused!
Thank you for any suggestions

I would go with a 2 tier elbow or fingertip length. You don’t want to take away from your dress. I have the Winnie Couture "Marrissa" dress which has a dropped waist, almost a trumpet. It is totally covered with swarovski crystals, so I went with a two tier fingertip length veil. Careful not to take away from my dress.
As for your maid of honor, whatever you want. I would probably put her in something floor length, maybe even a sweep train (providing your gown has a train.) So no, I don’t think that I would put her in a tulle gown. You want to make sure that all eyes are on you. You want to stand out. So be sure that she isn’t wearing a dress too close to yours.

I agree with Mrs.C2be about the veil. You’ll have enough going on below the drop waist- you don’t need another veil layer.
As for your MOH- I would go shopping with her and let he pick what she wants. Since she’s the only person- the possibilities are endless. Head about to some stores and start trying stuff on!

Thirded. Fingertip sounds like the right length for your veil. And I’d let your Maid/Matron of Honor pick her own dress. I would definitely avoid tulle, but that doesn’t mean avoiding ball-gown. Maybe you can hit the mall in a few months during some post-prom sales.
