I think a cathedral length veil would be beautiful..I really like the looks of the plain ones (without any lace/pearls/rhinestones around the edge). You’d still see through it to you beautiful dress, but it’d give it even more “Wow” factor! I tend to think longer veils help make the dress shine even more, but that’s just  my opinion 🙂

I also think longer veil. If you didn’t want cathedal you could always do a chapel length, it’s a little shorter but still down to the ground. I think it would look beautiful!

I think it depends on what kind of wedding you’re having, and what kind of vibe you want to put out! Personally, I prefer shorter veils, mine was shoulder-length. I think they’re more fun, and longer ones are more dramatic. Your dress would look beautiful with an elbow length veil with or without a blusher, and you could  probably keep it on all night! My understanding with a cathedral length is you’d probably take it off before or soon into the reception.

nemiya:  I think veils, especially long ones, are really only worn for the ceremony since they would definitly get in the way during a reception. That’s why people usually bustle their long dresses 🙂

nemiya:  It’s always a possiblity that you can get caught on things with a long veil but I don’t think I’ve ever seen or heard of that happening to anyone. I love long veils too. Don’t worry about mobility. You can bustle your veil just like you could a dress. At least that’s what I’m planning to do for my wedding. I’m planning on bustling my veil after the pictures and if I actually do get tired of it, I’ll probably end up removing it after our first dance (Honestly, I’m not planning on ever getting tired of my veil).

I think a cathedral length veil would really compliment your dress.
