I am wearing a cathedral length veil, it’s not what I envisioned at all but my mother loves it and it’s only for the ceremony. I’m also excited about maybe passing it on to my own daughter someday. But I’m so worried about it getting all crumbled when I turn at the alter… Do you just have someone straighten it?

I have this same issue but I have to turn walk up the stairs and turn again so I’m having someone stand at the stairs before I go up to straighten my train and veil (probably my grandmother) then one of my bridesmaids straighten it when I turn at the alter… =)

I’m probably going to need my Maid/Matron of Honor fluffing my train and another Bridesmaid or Best Man fixing my veil.

Here was mine
I got my Bridesmaid the one you see in the pic actually, to straighten it, she was very much my attendant.

I was thinking about the same thing! I think this sounds like a job I will give my Maid/Matron of Honor

I thought it was pretty typical for the Maid/Matron of Honor to straighten the train for the bride each time she moves about. So, I just assumed Maid/Matron of Honor would fix the veil with my train, and she did. It worked out fine. I heart cathedral veils!

I may end up with a cathedral length veil (not my first choice, see my poll) and I have similar questions. Really, how do you move in it? When do you put it on? How/when do you take it off? If the Maid/Matron of Honor is carrying her/your flowers, how does she also have hands to fix your train every time you turn around?
