Hello fellow bees,
I need help getting a veil for my wedding at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
My dress is off the shoulder–with a cathedral train–Are you supposed to get a cathedral veil with a cathedral train. I’m rather petite and have tried on many cathedral veils and am not thrilled over them
I’ve found a most unique elbow-lenth veil with french netting–It’s very modern–vogue-style. Do you think it would keep my theme traditional, or should I just go with cathedral for the church and wear the elbow length for everything else?????
What’s the protocal?

I think you should choose the veil that you like… if the cathedral veil seems to overwhelm you I would go with a smaller one. Mine is elbow length and quite wonderful, although my train is just chapel length. That said, I have absolutely no idea what the protocol is – I just think that you, as the bride, should be happy with the overall look. I don’t think that anyone in the pews will be whispering about the length of your veil vs. train.

If your train has a lot of detail, then it would be a shame to cover it up with a cathedral veil. I want everyone to see the detail on my train, so I’m getting a 52" veil that will have more drama than a fingertip veil, but only come to the back of my knees.

I’m also a St. Patrick’s Bride, and I am not going with a Cathedral length veil. I’m 5’2, 90 pounds, and that type of veil is just too much for me. My dress is also very detailed in the back, and I’d hate for it to be covered up by my veil. I can email you pictures of what I am wearing, [email protected]
