So my dress and veil haven’t came in yet, but I’m starting to freak out about my veil. When I tried it on it kept getting caught on the beading on the back of the dress but they assured me it was because the dress was all clipped up in the back and the beading was loose on the sample sale but wouldn’t be that way on my dress. My veil is a cathedral length and I’m also worried about it getting caught on the carpet, it has beading around the edge of the veil. Did anyone have this issue with their cathedral veil? If I got an aisle runner do you think that would prevent it from getting caught more so than carpet?

Mine was cathedral, though it had embroidery instead of beading. The beading is on the top side I’m guessing, so there’s no opportunity for it to snag the carpet (and even if it were in the underside, I don’t think it would snag), and the weight of the veil pulls it away from your body, so as long as someone adjusts it before you walk down the aisle you don’t need to worry about it sticking to your dress.

Also, you do have bridesmaids /MOH? That is one of their time-honoured duties, managing a bridal veil up the aisle etc.

A runner might help but like a previous poster said, a Bridesmaid or Best Man should help you manage the veil before going up the aisle. I have a beaded edge cathedral veil but the beading is on one side rather than right on the edge, so I’ve never experienced problems with it catching – yet. Before purchasing my veil, my bridal salon owner told me which fabics to avoid with my dress since it’s on the heavily beaded side (I was about to buy a silk tulle veil which apparently is a no-no with beaded gowns).
