Hello fellow Bees!
I’m picking out the accessories for my wedding dress and I’m torn between cathedral vs. waltz vs. fingertip. My dress is Allure 9002 (side-shot attached below). As you can see, the dress has a rather long train and dramatic flare. Here are my concerns about picking the different veil lengths:
1.) It seems that a cathedral would fit into the drama of the train and flare….BUT I’m also worried that it will end up obscuring the drama and beauty of the train. I’ve been looking on Etsy for cathedral lengths and while they’re more affordable than the options at the bridal salon, I’m having a hard time with the idea of spending so much on a piece of fabric that’ll only be worn for an hour tops!
2.) This is why I thought a fingertip length veil would be a good fit because it would end around where the flare begins….but then I’m concerned that the overall look may appear choppy? An advantage to this would be that I wouldn’t need to remove it for the reception since I’d be able to get around/dance with it still attached.
3.) So here comes the option of the waltz length veil. I thought it’d be a compromise between the two. I get the drama without the obvious choppiness.
What do you ladies think?? I’d love some input from any of you who had similar dresses or anyone who has a great eye for these types of things!
