    I voted to try to sell veil 1, but on account of the length, not the design.  The lace on veil 1 is close enough that people wouldn’t really notice the difference I think.  However the length of veil 1 concerns me for the same reasons you gave, and you’re right about the veil cutting off the train half way.  You’ll either need a cathedral that goes just past the train, or maybe a fingertip length.  Are you sure that veil 2 is the length you need?

    As far as sentimental value, I think the veil has as much value as the dress, and any other accessory that contributes to your wedding day look.  Especially if your father will be lifting the veil at the end of the aisle for you, that’s a classic emotional moment, and it makes the significance of the veil that much more important to you.  So don’t let your mom tell you the veil doesn’t mean anything.

    I wouldn’t try to wear both veils in the same day.  In fact, if I were you I wouldn’t wear any veil that touches the floor at my reception, because I want the ability to dance at my party!  Just sell veil 1, or if you really want to, then keep it as a keepsake.  If you decide to sell it, I’m sure it won’t hold a grudge against you for cheating… veils don’t care about that stuff I promise.  😉

    You are definitely not Bridezilla-ing anything!  This is a very valid concern in my book…and I was one of those people who never even LIKED veils!  I voted to sell the first one, also because of the length issue.  You are 100% correct that it would fall awkwardly in the middle of your train, and while your family may not notice…YOU will! And that’s what’s important.  You want to feel beautiful on that day, and not have to worry about any little nagging details.  Have you tried them both on with your dress?  Is this possible?  Maybe if you could post some pictures and we could give you some direct feedback on the appearance of the veil with the dress.  If not, then I say go with your instincts and sell the first veil!

    and get what you love and wear what you love. heck some brides have 2-3 dresses. it takes a while to make it all work.

    so be happy with your choices and you wont have regrets. 🙂
