    ooooh, good question!  (I have the same one!)

    Can you post a pic of your dress?  That might help with suggestions.

    It’s really just personal taste.  I like a pencil edge or beading.  Something to finish it off and give the edge a little definition.  Mine was a beaded edge – $23 from ebay, venus veils.

    Aww so pretty!!!!  Looks great on you. I think you can definiately play up the look with a fancier veil!  If you want to keep it simple, a veil like the one you are wearing here looks good, too.  Try a few different options and yo might be surprised. I do, however, love the elbow length!

    I wanted a simple raw edge veil, and found one on etsy for about $20 and in my opinion, it was perfect. There are many different sellers with lots of options as far as length and layers go. Mine is fingertip length/1 tier. 

    Here’s mine:

    I think a raw edge would look better, personally. : ) Beautiful dress!

    @SarahJW:  I voted one tier. I liked how one tier didn’t totally take away from my dress in the back and it was just enough in the front. Consider the back of your dress, too!

    Mine’s a raw edge and oval cut. I love how it flow into the dress.

    I really think it depends on your dress and your taste. I personally like 2 tier raw edge veils. They’re simple enough that they don’t take away from your gown, but the multiple tiers give it enough volume to be noticable in just the right way.
