If there is no trim on it, you can shorten it fairly easily.  Just recut the oval.  Fold it once lengthwise and once widthwise so that it stays symmetrical.

If you want to make it a two tier, fold the oval lengthwise so that the shorter half is the length you want your blusher/2nd tier.  Then you can gather near/at the fold and attach to your comb.

If you ordered a fingertip one and got one that’s 16 feet long ummmm contact their customer service and return or exchange it!!!

But yes, you could theoretically make it into a two-layer one… I originally purchased a veil that was one big circle that was made into a two-layer veil.  This Etsy seller is the one I used if you want to look… http://www.etsy.com/shop/romancingtheveil  I don’t know exactly how it works though.

@rachiebabie:  If you want a poofier veil you can just cut an oval/circle out of the center and then gather the veil along the inner cut edge.  That way you wouldn’t have to take the trim off.

@rachiebabie:  have you tried contacting them about the discrepancy?
