So I need advice on which type/style veil to wear. I love the look of long veils, I am not really a fan of short finger tip length veils mainly because I do not like the way they look in pictures. When I originally tried on my dress and picked it I had not made up my mind on even wearing a veil but not I want to. This is my dress (I am not wearing a crown thing she has). I want to be able to also still see the lace on the train. What do you think looks best?
This is what I was thinking for a veil with lace only on the trim/edges
And this is the palin tulle idea
Our wedding is an outdoor ceremony in the beginning of October.

Beautiful dress! I’m liking the lace edged veil I think that will tie in with your dress beautifully. You can never have too much lace

I think the plain. Sometimes lace on lace looks too busy. I recommend trying on veils.

I’ve been a bridal consultant for years.
Go with the plain veil. The lace on the veil will not match the lace on your dress, in pattern or color. It always seems to clash and the lace veil makes it look heavy. You will be able to see the detail of your dress through a plain veil, not one with lace since the edges will fall behind your shoulders.
Also, I would suggest looking at walking length veils instead of cathedrals- much easier to move in!

i love lace veils, but rarely am i a fan of lace-on-lace (unless the veil is custom made is exactly the same lace as the dress, they usually clash, and the amount of lace can be overwhelming). so with the plain tulle, and do just a single layer – that will allow the lace on your train to show through

what do you consider a “walking length” veil? 90 inches long? 100 inches long? 110 inches long?
What technically is the length of a Cathedral veil?

I agree with teh plain being the better choice with your lace dress. That way you still get the drama of a long veil, without covering up the beautiful details!
Perhaps the PP meant chapel length? I’ve never heard of a walking veil.
eta – this one has more measurements. Keep in mind these will vary depending on your height too.

My vote is for the plain veil as I think the dress has just the right amount of lace and detailing that the lace veil will take away from the dress. You can also go for a veil that has pearls on the trim.

I rarely like lace dresses and lace veils as the lace often doesn’t match and the whole look can get too heavy. My favourite kind of veil is a very sheer, very light, single layer raw edge veil. It just looks so floaty and ethereal and lets the dress shine.

A cathedral is typically 110-120″, walking length 72″. It hits before the floor, almost to the length of the full body.
