I like the fingertip length veils. I’m with you, the longer the better. I think sparkle would be beautiful with the dress you’re wearing, however, then I wouldn’t go with emboidery it might be too much especially if you are doing heavy sparkle like you mentioned.

Try going to occanseydesigns.com. I went there and “built” my own veil just to see what it would look like and cost. By The Way this online place is a lot cheaper than any bridal store.

I would suggest trying on the veils to help make a decision. I thought I wanted a fingertip length veil till I tried it on and it made me look “cut off” I know I’m already short I didn’t need the veil enhancing that feature (I’m 5ft). Anyways, I ended up going with a 1 tier chapel veil with bling and a silver vine going around the edge.. it was $149 🙁 I love the veil but wasn’t crazy about the price…

@dermiestar:  I think it felt fine, wasn’t stiff like some veils tend to be.  I’m really happy with it.  I wanted a cathedral length and was going to have sparkles (but when I changed my dress I decided plain and to add stuff later with my mom who does emboidery etc).  Bridal shops are asking $300 for cathedral length.  For mine I got basic stuff no embellishments just the length and tier I wanted for $52.  Can’t beat that.

Also this site has pictures from real brides who bought their veil.  It will describe what they bought so you can see if a similar dress looked well with a longer veil.  I think a chaple or cathedral length would look gorgeous.  There are tips on this site how to measure yourself, what teirs will look like etc.  Seriously I’d never bought a veil either and this site was a God send.
