108 is not too wide especially if you want it to cover your shoulders because its usually puckered or gathered around the comb. Having said that the best way to choose is to try them on. I went over to davids bridal and tried on a few i think I ended up going with one that 90 inches wide. I chose the smaller one because I liked the metallic edge

Tulle comes standard in two widths. 108 and 54 inches. they typically say 108 is better for a longer veil because it looks more balances, but if you are not having any gathers it may end up being really wide.

When I was making mine, I used 108″ tulle. After I had cut it out it was about cathedral length. and the piece was almost square.  However I did lots of gathering and it shortened up quite a bit.

Hope that helps. Maybe ask your etsy seller what they recommend?
