    I always thought I wanted a long veil but my train is soo beautiful I don’t want to distract from it with a long veil. My is elbow length.

    I don’t think there is any correlation between the two. Each is whatever you like!

    Personal choice.  But I think if the train in ornate then it wouldn’t make sense to cover it up.

    I had a fingertip length Veil because I too didn’t want to take away from the beauty of my train (I wore an organza gown). But again, there is no universal “rule”, it’s whatever you want.

    Mine is the same length as my train. The veil has a raw edge with no embellishments, so I think it works with the train and doesn’t take away from it.

    My veil is either 8 or 10 inches longer than my train (semi-cathedral length). I have beading all the way from my bodice on down through to my mid thigh so having a fingertip veil would have created a line and broken the flow. I think you could get away with a long veil laying on the train if it’s a raw edge because it could sort of melt into the fabric.
