Hey,

I wanted a really thick, simple long looking veil and ended up getting a cathedral veil with sporadic sparkles that catch the light but are not extremely noticable otherwise. I had my dress on in store and my bm came over with it and I am so plain I was like ok I’ll try it why not and loved it! It’s long and thick like I wanted just with extra bling.

I am a fan of veils, it’s one of my favourite thing about the entire ensemble, the longer and thicker the better IMO 🙂

I also meant to go with a simple, shorter veil since my dress has a lot of lace in it. However, in the end, the chapel length lace veil really made the whole ensamble, so I went for it! It’s the only time I will be wearing such a beautiful, luxurious item, so why not?

I ordered mine from JJ’s House! I found a long, 10 foot one for $10.99. I took it to my fittings at this expensive boutique and the quality was higher than half of their $200+ ones! They couldn’t believe how much I paid lol.

I love long veils!!for me the veil needs to be longer than the  train of the dress.

when I got my dress they had a cathedral veil with the same lace my dress had so I got it.

It didn’t have q comb attached (in case you wanted double, a blusher, or whatever) but I asked for it to be like a mantilla and I loved the efect!!

I had a chapel (bordering on cathedral) length veil as well. I absolutely adored it. I wore it for our ceremony and portraits only. I chose to go with a single-layer veil with no embellishment because there was so much lace on my dress.

I’m going all out for drama! I love cathedral length veils, so that was a no-brainer for me. I also wanted something light enough that it would catch the wind and have good movement as well. I opted for a single layer because I love the open back of my dress and didn’t want to cover it up.

Mine was plain rolled edge chapel length, two teir. My dress was HP Decklyn so I didn’t want to compete with it. I felt ethereal on the day.

I am very 50/50 on a veil but ooooo do I love the romance is brings to any bridal look. 

Any bee’s have a juliet cap veil?

mimivac :  I too am planning on a dress with a lot of lace and back detail, and I previously wasn’t really sold on the idea of a veil period. But when I went dress shopping my consultant sold me on a single layer sheer veil with face-framing lace like yours that I can drape over my shoulders during the ceremony for a different look. The one she recommended was fingertip length because the lace edging fell nicely between the lace detail on my butt and on the start of the train haha. 

I felt the same way about it being a unique opportunity to wear a dramatic accessory.

These veils are all stunning! 

I was planning on getting something super simple or just skipping a veil all together. Then a really good friend of mine got married a few months before me with a cathedral length veil and I HAD to have one! I’m so glad I went with a long veil. We had a courthouse wedding and it made me feel more like a bride. It also was great for photos. We got married not too far from the beach so there was quite a bit of wind and movement. I have a ton of pics that captured the movement in my veil well. 

I bought my veil from Etsy for like $40. It’s butterscotch colored and just a single layer with a comb. I feel like if I got it from a bridal store it would have been at least $100.

kelbrimale :  I chose a plain, single layer, rolled edge cathedral length veil.  I’ve always wanted cathedral length because I think it is SO bridal and whimsical.  I went with plain, single layer because my dress had a lot of detail, especially in the back, and I didn’t want to take away from that.  I felt like it was understated and simple, but the length made it a little dramatic.

kelbrimale :  Thank you! I felt so bridal in it.

The bridal salon where I purchased my dress couldn’t keep one on hand because girls kept purchasing the floor model, and it would take 2 months to get another one in. I was the third bride to buy one off the floor- they’d only had it for a week lol.
