    I wore two…it looked like just one veil at the ceremony (the cathedral) but then I had the shorter veil, the fingertip for the reception/cake cutting/first dance/etc

    Ooooh, I’m a sucker for a cathedral length veil. In my opinion, they just never look wrong! πŸ™‚

    And you look great!

    I think the shorter veil competes with the teirs of your dress. The single long layer of the cathedral veil compliments without overpowering it.

    Cathedral.  The two-tier looks like it blends in with the layers of the skirt.  I love the skirt, its gorgeous:)

    I like the cathedral veil. With all the layers in the bottom half of your dress, I really like what the solid length of the cathedral does for your dress (I hope that makes sense, lol!).

    If you are going to go with a veil…the cathedral. The short veil is distracting and doesn’t mesh well with the tiers of the dress.

    Apparently I am the only one on this site that feels this way but I personally am not a fan of cathedral veils at all. Finger tip veils have so much more life to them and just frame a bride better. Not only that but its so much less to deal with.

    For this particular dress, I would vote the Cathedral, but normally I lean towards Fingertip! So much detail on the dress that I feel the fingertip is lost in the dress…

    Cathedral would go best with your dress.

    I bought a fingertip veil for my dress but looking at your cathedral I am reconsidering one πŸ™‚ I voted cathedral!
