    Not married yet, but I’m doing something between chapel and cathedral for my outdoor ceremony. I’ll have one of the girls or my planner help me up to the aisle and then let it ride. Also commenting to see if anyone else has suggestions. 🙂

    First off, you look amazing in your dress! I am doing an outdoor ceremony in August and am doing a long veil!  I am getting one made to look like this with lace-


    I figured you can only really wear a veil once in your life, so go for it! I wouldn’t worry about the walking down the aisle with it dragging part…like I said, you’re only wearing it once! Your bridesmaids can fix it once you make it to the alter and I can’t imagine you can do too much damage! Atleast that is what I am telling myself anyways haha! Do whatever you want, it’s your day!

    CallMeMrsG:  Your dress is so gorgeous! I do love the idea of a chapel length veil for an outdoor ceremony.

    I’m wearing the dress in the pic below and a veil of about the same length for my outdoor wedding.  I’ll be walking for a while down a paved, terraced pathway before I make it to my aisle.  

    I think you should get whatever veil length you like the most and that you think looks best w your dress. I don’t think your veil dragging behind you as you walk would look bad or silly at all- that’s what long veils are meant to do whether indoors or out. Go for whatever look and feel you like most.

    I had a cathedral length veil. I just had an aisle runner. Ethe spots without it (where we took pics) I didn’t have any issues with it getting caught.

    CallMeMrsG:  I only had a fingertip length for my outdoor wedding, but I would have LOVED having a cathedral length.  There is something about them that is so elegant and dreamy and just very…wedding-ish. I definitely think you should go with the cathedral…i’ve seen them at outdoor weddings and they are just so stunning! And I think it would be the cherry on top for your beautiful dress!

    CallMeMrsG:  what will you be walking on? I had to walk down a dirt road, and since it had rained the night before it was all Completely mud! Obviously this isn’t as big a problem if you’re walking on any kind of stone or pavement.

    I think mine was chapel length, it was my mums veil, I walked on grass and it was fine, sometimes during the day it got sticks stuck in it but otherwise ok lol I would think they would be ok on other surfaces too.

    My veil is 60 years old and the photograher stood on it right at the end of the night and didnt rip so I would think brand new ones could stand a few snags!
