I need help!! I’m a short bride, 5’0 and I found my dress back in February. I am very confused about the veil though… I purchased a catherdral veil because I am having a traditional church ceremony and wanted that dramatic effect walking down the aisle since my train isnt super long. But I tried the veil on with my dress (and shoes) and I now think its TOO LONG.. What do you think?

I think it is stunning! But i’m really into that type of look. I think it would look amazing in pictures too, but I do worry about people stepping in it! I would keep it though 🙂

I am all about the long veils and big trains, so I am just staring slack-jawed at this picture. Thoroughly jealous. You rock that cathedral veil!

I would personally shorten it so the tips of the ‘vines’ start ~8in after the end of your train when walking. Veils are really easy for a seamstress to shorten (it’s taken up from the comb), so if you do want it to be a little less dramatic it shouldn’t be a problem.

Thank you so much!! taylorraye13: MmeChachita:
I like that idea, I may be getting a crinoline slip so that it doesnt fall so flat and it might actually look a bit better. Thank you for the advice

I think the train of your dress is a bit short for the veil in the first place, can the veil be shortened? but it’s all a personal preference
i think i would shorten it so the lace shows just after the train

Personally, id have it so the veil frames the edge of your dress. As in the vines, right now my eyes go straight to the blank spot on the floor in between the dress and the end of your veil. Your veil IS beautiful though, but for me id prefer it to be shorter so my eyes are drawn to you and your dress 🙂

I think you’re both right, just like sewingbee:
said, so once I get my “underthings” I will see where the train ends and have the veil shortened so that the lace just touches the dress Thank you so much!
