I’m having a rustic wedding and I am doing a single-tier cathedral length veil, I think it looks so much better as a long veil.

What does your dress look like in the back? My instincts would be to go with something long, but super light. Raw-edge veil, very little embellishment, if any. Your dress already has so much lovely beading. The simplicity will complement your dress and be appropriate for the style of your wedding.

Lately I’ve been advising folks to stop by their nearest craft shop and pick up a couple yards of tulle to mess around with just so they can see what fullness and length of veil looks good on them. It should cost you at max $5, and you can experiment to your heart’s content! (It’s resulted in a DIY veil for me, too — bonus!)

Just because you’re not getting married in a cathedral doesn’t mean you can’t have a cathedral veil!

I agree that long, single layer, raw edge with no embellishments would look great with your dress and fit with the feel of your wedding.

I’m taller than you (6’2″) and was thinking I want to go with shoulder-length or elbow-length, myself.  I haven’t actually tried anything that length, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t look ok.
