God, your dress is GORGEOUS! My dress was a similar cut, and I wore a veil that went right to the middle of my butt — 30″, I think. Shorter would have blocked the sash, and longer looked like a butt-cup!

Your dress is beatiful!!! I say a medium to long veil.

I think with mermaid and trumpet style gowns you can go long AND really long, like cathedral length- it really frames the dress and since you don’t have a train, it adds some visual interest to the back of the dress.

I think your dress is to die for. I love it! I also tend to love birdcage veils and I think that would look gorgeous with your dress. I am struggling to decide if I want to wear a birdcage/blusher veil or not.

I think a fingertip length veil would look amazing with your dress.

I have an idea, why not wear a medium veil for the ceremony and the birdcage for the reception- this would give you two different looks, btw, love that dress on you

I think most dresses can pull off the fingertip length (my cousin did this for her trumpet dress and it was beautiful).  I also like the cathedral length veils which is what I will do with my mermaid dress.

Since you will be outside, I’d skip the chapel or cathedral veil and go short. Fingertips aren’t my favorite, so I’ll recommend a birdcage.
