I picked my dress yesterday (yes!!) but now am deciding on a veil. I love long veils because I feel they are dramatic and beautiful but feel a short veil may be more appropriate since I am having an outdoor ceremony. Also, my dress is beaded and I’m afraid the delicate veil will get caught and tear. Anyone wear a veil and have any advice?

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

@mrsSonthebeach: Thanks. I’m afraid the long veil will take away from the bead work on the train. I didn’t even try on shorter ones but that’s a good idea.

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.

Thanks ladies! The dress is “Brielle” by Kenneth Poole, Spring 2013. There was a trunk show over the weekend and that is where I spotted it. Apparently it’s just starting to go into production.
If you google it you’ll find the runway shot which I don’t think does the gown any justice

@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.

@mstellah: Wow, your dress is gorgeous. Truly stunning. I love it with the long veil; so glamorous…which did you end up choosing?

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.
