    I would go with one of those retro bubble veils for this sweet 50s inspired dress.  BTW, I’ve been obsessed with this dress since it came out.  You’re a very lucky girl 😉

    I think your dressy is very kicky. A chapel or cathedral veil would overpower it to me. I voted for fingertip because elbow isn’t an option.

    I’d go with elbow length. I also have a Christos dress and didn’t feel anything went with the ivory silk organza so my seamstress is making one to match – it’s much better than the standard tulle and not so poufy, so it doesn’t overwhelm the dress so much.

    I’d go elbow length or shorter – anything longer will take away from the dress I fear.

    A short veil would be great … and By The Way your dress is gorgeous!

    I agree with everyone else who said fingertip/elbow. I’m a fan of chapel/cathedral veils too, but I don’t think one would really suit your dress.

    elbow–anything longer would be too much!

    I think you could go either fingertip or elbow and it will look stunning!

    I tried this dress on with a single layer chapel length and it looked stunning…..the sheerness of the veil is important, otherwise it will over power.

    Your dress is ridiculously beautiful!  I say elbow or fingertip. 🙂
