So I wore a fit n flare lace and tulle wedding gown, similar to yours in detailing. I originally tried on a bunch of different size veils with mine and the cathedral was just way too long and way too much with my dress, even though I had it in mind that that was the length I wanted….plus I really didn’t want to cover the back of my train with tulle from the veil so I chose an elbow length veil with lace detailing on the bottom…I’ll post a pic for reference. It ended up working out perfectly and didn’t feel like the veil was competing with my dress…

Finger-tip or chapel length raw-edge single layer veil. That back is too pretty to hide so the more sheer the better.

chaneladdict :  thank you Bee! I got it from the dress shop where I bought my dress! I spent way too much on it and I’m still annoyed about it but I tried looking for different ones online and in cheaper stores but I just couldn’t find one that literally had like the exact lace from my dress that this veil had! And I was also nervous to buy a veil elsewhere without trying it on with my dress on because of the colors. I wasn’t sure if I should get white, off white, Ivory, champagne, etc. bc my dress had a nude underlay so it def wasn’t white white…. I spent $350 and it was annoying because it’s literally a piece of tulle with some chunks of lace ๐Ÿ˜ณ

chaneladdict :  i would do a 1 layer raw edge finger tip veil on a comb with beads. This way you can still see the beautiful back.

I agree with the other bees, 1 layer and raw-edge fingertip veil. The back of your dress is gorgeous, definitely should be shown off.

chaneladdict :  I think a fingertip veil could make your dress look too ‘busy’ in the middle, I would go for a long (chapel or floow length) veil! And no beading so it doesn’t distract from your beautiful dress ๐Ÿ™‚

I likw the idea of a raw-edge veil as others suggest, but I would go longer. You can shorten a cathedral length to suit the train, but a simple, one-tier/layer full length would be so beautiful. To me, the shorter fingertip veil with your wedding dress style would feel top heavy and bottom heavy. I think the beauty in your dress is the shape, and a long simple veil will give it the attention the dress deserves ๐Ÿ™‚
