Hi! Hi! I am wearing this ivory silk shantung Jasmine dress, which has a chapel length train. I have been getting different opinions from family and friends on what length veil. Some say chapel length or longer, but others are saying elbow length or something else. Need your help!!!
In either case, it would be a 1-tier veil (to show the beading and buttons) with either a raw or pencil edge. Would probably have some light beading/sequins/crystals to match the dress beading. Right now, the back has all ivory buttons, but I am swapping out every third one or so with a vintage-type rhinestone one.
Thanks in advance!

This isn’t the answer you probably want but I would say whatever one you like best. I’m personally a fan of cathedral length veils but any length would probably look great. Love your button details!

@MUI831: Thanks! I don’t know what I want…I’m a scientist so haven’t really been into fashion/makeup much. I am so out of touch with wedding trends that I didn’t know that most brides now don’t use the blusher veil!!!

I agree with Mui831, although have you tried on a birdcage? They tend to look really glamourous with this type of dress…

I say elbow – I think it would allow the bottom of the dress to still be seen from the back but I just think elbow length veils are very elegant

I prefer a 1-tier chapel length veil. It will be sheer enough to allow the detail of your dress to show through without breaking up your silhouette. Although our dresses are different styles, I can pm you a link to a photo my dress with this type of veil to give you a visual if you are interested.

@Seasidebride7: I like birdcage, but I am that weird combo of modern-vintage-traditional. The birdcage feels like it’s missing something and the regular veils seem too traditional for me. What do you think of a combo tulle birdcage AND regular veil? Jessica Alba did it in the movie the Fantastic Four…I like the look but not mixing the fabrics.
Here’s some pics- would add beading or rhinestones or a vintage fascinator of some kind… what do you think?
