    I think the fingertip veil looks silly with your dress. You either need the long one or something much shorter.

    I think the cathedral legnth looks great, but I understand your concerns. I’m not a fan of the fingertip length. 


    On a side note, your dress is GORGEOUS. Would you mind sharing the designer/style number?

    neither! I think that cathedral is wayyy too long, and especially for outside, try a shorter veil 🙂  pretty dress

    I voted for the long veil, but agree with the suggestion of trying a shorter veil.  Either way, I had to post to say your dress is AMAZEBALLS!  Wow, it is seriously gorgeous and seriously gorgeous on you.

    @mstellah:  Mmm a bit of a toughie, I think the cathedral length takes away from the dress but the fingertip doesn’t do it anything for it. How about a fingertip mantilla veil?

    I’m one of the few voting for the short veil. The long veil seems overwhelming. But the short one seems flattering.

    Definitely don’t do cathedral length outside…I’ve seen veils pick up leaves, dirt, etc. before. I think the fingertip looks lovely, but I second PPs to try a shorter one! I think a plainer veil is the way to go, because your dress beadwork is STUNNING and you definitely don’t want to take away from it.

    I love the drama of the long veil… it’s stunning! How about you wear that for the ceremony, and then change into a fascinator or browpiece for the reception? I say this not because I worry about mud, but because I’m more worried about people at the reception treading on it and hurting you.
