From a quick Google images search it looks like you’d be best off going with a chapel/cathedral-length veil if you want a long one (waist length or floor/waltz-length would probably also look) or if you want a short one, birdcage.

I think it depends on the details on your dress…. my dress was a-line, but had a dropped waist detail, which was hidden if I put on a fingertip length veil. I also didn’t want a cathedral length which would have covered the pretty lace on my train.  The veil that looked the best when I tried it on with my dress came to about the back of my knees (but I’m not sure what this length is called). That’s the veil I went with.

I would say it’s really a matter of trial and error and the style of your dress can’t always dictate the style or length of a veil that will work best. Have you tried any veils on with your dress?  I recommend trying out a bunch of different styles and lengths and taking photos to help with your decision.

My first instinct is to say elbow length. But if you’re not feelin’ that, Cathedral length would look  nice too.

@cupcake–I think that’s called waltz, or at least I looked online at a couple that were waltz length.  it seems like the best of both worlds–not chapel or cathedral, but not awkwardly short…
