    I think it’s more a matter of your personal preference, I prefer short because I didn’t want it to be dragging behind me all night and to have to fuss with it.  Your dress could pull off either!

    My instincts are the shorter with your dress, but the cathedral would be lovely too! Maybe let your venue decide what you choose?

    hmmm—I am a big fan of cathedral length…there is only one time in your life wearing a veil is acceptable. But they are pretty annoying.

    So, I did both—I wore a cathedral length and a blusher for the ceremoney. Then I took the cathedral length off and moved the blusher to the back of my head and wore it all night. I love how the late night pictures turned out, dancing with the veil….the cathedral length also made an encore appearance at the after-reception party on a few of my bridesmaid’s heads!

    Oh wow! Your ceremony venue is AMAZINGGG! I would definitely go cathedral if I had a venue like that! I don’t think it looks weird, but I guess that’s personal preference! 

    If you are worried about the length of the cathedral, you could always have it altered to end a foot longer than the train of your dress (which seems to be shorter than the dress in the picture?)? I think that always looks lovely!

    I like the cathedral better.  It’s really pretty.  But also because I’m not so into two tiered ones.  I like single teired ones that are fingertip length.  That would look good with your dress, too.  But cathedral wins out of the options you posted.

    I think the cathedral extending past the train is part of the beauty of the cathedral.  so, no, I definitely wouldn’t worry about that.  And your venue is really gorgeous and appropriate for a cathedral.

    You could do either! I’d prefer the short for less hassle. Awesome venue btw!

    Technically anything with a train should have a longer veil, so for your dress either fingertip, cathedral or chapel lengths for viel. A shorter veil will cut you off in an awkward way, and you don’t want it to take away from your blingy sash. 

    Also the cathedral is meant to be longer then your dresses train. If you don’t want to deal with a longer one all night try going with a fingertip length, it gives you the same sort of appearance, without the dragging train behind you.

    I love cathedral length myself but judging from your venue and your gown, I voted short.  Your gown has a LOVELY train, it would be a shame to hide it under a veil.  Your venue looks chic, elegant and modern, I think the shorter veil matches that style better.
