I think a fingertip veil would look beautiful

@Engineer- making your own veil is really easy.  Look for a tutorial post by me in the next couple of days… and if you have any questions feel free to ask.  I think elbow length would be perfect for you.  Also, if you want to have it lay really flat, there are ways to do that without doing a circle veil if you wanted.  The one I just made lays really flat!

How tall are you?  I would use caution with elbow length veils, it can cut you off, and take focus away from the beautiful back of your dress!  I would go a little past your hips.

How about a drop veil? They attach with a hat pin. I think around waist length would be good.

@mrsdg:I cannot wait to read the tutorial. This is definitely going to be on my todo list!

@crebree, i think drop veils and circle veils are the same thing. they are my favorite style and ive seen them referenced both ways.

I am not “making” my dress in the traditional sense- as in I bought the fabric already in the right shape for my veil.  It’s a cathedral length drop veil, with a modified cascade cut.  But I am handstitching satin rattail cord all along the edges.  It is going to take me an eternity to finish, but is not particularly hard to do.
