    I would be tempted to go elbowlength so the veil stops before the dress gets interesting, but a sheer chapel length veil could work also. I wouldn’t go mantilla, though… those always seem to go better with simpler dresses.

    My first choice would be a chapel length too, but to honor your FI’s wishes I’d go with the fingertip!

    Your dress is gorgeous 🙂

    I would do a two-tier fingertip veil with a cute edge and no embellishments.  Or, depending on your size/height, a bubble veil could work (although not if you’re tiny/petite).

    I have a similar dress and I am doing a chapel length veil. I love the look and as long as it is sheer you can still see through it.

    I would probably do a simple fingertip because the back has so much volume and you wouldn’t want to cover it! Gorgeous dress.

    I say go with the fingertip. A chapel length might detract from the interesting back, and a mantilla I think would be a little too much, since the dress is already so intricate.

    I’m all about chapel length veils!  It’s not as if you’ll be wearing it all night. . .even if a super sheer veil covers the back a bit, the reception is the long part and everyone can see the back then!

    I like the third pic of the fingertip veil.  It won’t take away from your dress.

    Simple fingertip – don’t outshine the dress. Definitely NOT a mantilla, I don’t see that coordinating too well.

    I think the fingertip veil would go best with the dress.

    A fingertip would work well with the dropped waist.

    I think a chapel length veil would be weird, like you had a cathedral veil and it got caught in the car on the way over and you had to rip the end off….

    I think cathedral would look great – the really long veils!
