    Since the veil has such beautiful detailing on it, I would keep it as it is. I think it looks gorgeous the way it is in the picture.

    @HisMoon:  I think that she likely would have it shortened from the top rather than having the detailing removed.

    @vpowln:  I think it looks beautiful, but, if you wanted to shorten it a bit to bring it closer to the length of your gown (while still having it extend beyond your dress so that the detailing remains visible), you certainly could.

    @Brielle:  Oh, my fault. Vague commentary on my part. I meant that I liked having the detailwork be that level of separate from the dress because it really highlights it.

    @HisMoon:  And I am sorry that I incorrectly presumed that you meant something else. 🙂

    I would consider shortening the top so you don’t remove that gorgeous detailing, but I feel like it’s kind of overwhelming that stunning dress of yours. Your veil should compliment, not take over, your look. 🙂

    I think you could certainly shorten it so that the start of the embellishment is just past where the train of the dress ends.  I think this would make the look more cohesive.  Right now the dress and the veil don’t ‘fit’ each other very well.

    I’m not a fan of a lot of veil past where the dress ends myself; I think it looks a bit mis-matched if I’m being honest, so, I voted to shorten it.

    I like veils that are either short (ie waist length or shorter), or that finish a few inches past the bottom of the dress.

    I agree with @Anise – I am not confident the veil and the dress “fit” each other right now. Both are incredibly gorgeous in their own right – but due to the length my eyes switch back & forth from viewing the veil to the dress – I feel like they’re not able to view the collective at the moment. The point made about photographs is a good one – the beautiful detail of the veil may get cut off in some photos that capture the detail of your dress. Of course, just my two cents. 🙂

    I think it goes beautifully with your dress, it’s just a tad bit too long. Where does the detailing start on the veil? If it starts a about a foot from your head, it shouldn’t be hard at all to modify it yourself. All you’d have to do is detach it from the comb, cut off however much you want, round the corners again, and reattach it to the comb.

    However, if the beading goes aaall the way around the veil, I’d have a professional take care of it. You don’t want to undo all that beautiful beading!

    I would shorten it a little. Both are gorgeous!
