    Hi, I’m also a petite bride (5′ 0″). I saw your other post, and I think the blusher veils you’re interested in are absolutely perfect. The style of dress you’ve chosen would look better with a blusher. I feel like a full length veil would hide the cuteness of your dress (especially the shoulder straps).


    The veil I chose is Bel Aire V7031. There aren’t many good photos of it floating around online, though 🙁 I wanted to wear a blusher, as well, but my mom preferred that I have a longer veil (mine is finger-tip length). Are you still leaning toward a blusher?

    I’m 5’0″ I’m doing birdcage but I didn’t even think of my height when I choose it. I think anything will work as long as you plan.

    I am 5’0 and considering a chapel length veil or possibly cathedral. For me, as long as it is single tiered, I think we can pull it off~

    I’m 5’3″ and doing a cathedral length veil. I’ll only be wearing it for the ceremony and the photos before/after. For the reception I’ll go with a shorter veil (either elbow or blusher/birdcage). I’ve gotten veils from friends and family, though, so cost wasn’t an issue in deciding.

    I think that being short/petite isn’t bad with a long veil at all, it’s all in how you place it and what you feel compliments you and your dress best.

    I have a friend is is around 5’1 and she wore a plain cathedral veil and she looked amazing and it wasn’t overwhelming on her – I think the chapel veil should be okay.

    I’m 5’0 and wore fingertip

    i had the same issue, im five foot and love the look of a chapel or cathedral length veil but didnt want to look like i was being consumed by tulle. so i purchased a Waltz length veil which hit floor length. Gave the romantic feel but wasnt fussy and to long to get in the way!

    I’m 5’3, and I wore an elbow length, single layer veil that I took off IMMEDIATELY after the ceremony.

    I wore a fingertip veil, and I’m barely 5’1″.  Didn’t see that option in your poll!

    I wore a fingertip double veil and I’m 5’2″. I wore it through the ceremony and small portion of the reception. I think you can do anything you want as long as it is in proportion to your overall look and your gown. Good luck!
