So! I’m getting married next month, I know cutting it short! It’s time to buy a veil, I don’t want anything fancy, the detail on my dress isn’t very bold, so i don’t want to cover it up, I just want a simple plain veil. However, everyone I ask gives me a different idea of length! I will be having my hair in a side french braid and below is my dress.
Some people have said go for fingertip length, others have said go all out and go for cathedral length, I’m rather limited in terms of travel so I can’t go and try any on. Thankyou in advance for any help!! 🙂

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.

I’m not a fan of the shorter veils, thats the only length I tried on when i baught the dress, it just didn’t suit me personally :). The only problem i have with a cathedral veil is mobility? Sounds silly but will it get caught on things?

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.

Fingertip is lovely and very wearable
