    I went very classic (and vintage) with my gown and chose a elbow ength veil with a trim that matched the hem of my skirt.

    tillymac :  that’s lovely. 


    I was gong to say i say I love a full cathedral veil always but yours is perfect with your look. 


    I had a thick ribbon edge cathedral veil. Loved it. Satin dress.

    I had a long veil with a lot of detail towards the bottom.  My dress had a nice back/waistline, so I didn’t want to get something short that stopped right in the middle of those details or something long with decoration throughout the veil that would cover those details up.  Does your dress have anything on the back you’d like to highlight?

    Here’s mine.  I really loved it 😊

    I had a cathedral length veil. I figure you really only get one chance to wear one, so you might as well go all out!

    summerrain123 :  Thanks!! Are you wearing one dress for your ceremony and the other for the reception? Bc logistically, you probably won’t want to wear your veil at the reception (people will step on it or accidentally pull it out of your hair when they hug you), so if that’s the case you can focus on the ceremony dress. 

    One thing to consider is cost, because most brides wear their veils for only part of the day. As much as I love my veil, it cost a lot more than I planned to spend and I’m not sure how many guests noticed it at the wedding.  Another thing to consider is timing–if a veil is detailed and has to be made on order, it can take several months.  My other suggestions are to keep the features of your dress in mind, try on different styles, and check with the store where you purchased your dress because they may have styles that match or complement the dress. Also, check with your alterations person as they may be able to make you a veil with everything you want. I hope that helps! 🙂

    madilynnnne :  

    And try different ways of wearing  a veil . Personally  I really dislike the bunch-of-tulle-stuck-to-the-back-of-the-head/neck  style , but many like it I know .

    Just try different ways, including ones with blusher layers   and try  it from the crown of the head with and without headpieces etc

    I chose fingertip for you because I think longer might be more annoying. I wanted mine to hit just above the opening in the back of my dress.

    madilynnnne :  I think having a long veil really took my wedding look to the next level… and we got some wonderful pictures of it in the wind 🙂 I truly felt like a princess on our special day. I don’t anticipate ever wearing a veil again, so I’m glad my stylist encouraged me to “go big”, so to speak.
