Beautiful dress! I always thought I’d like a fingertip-length veil myself, but when I tried it on at the salon, the length just felt awkward on me. I am now doing a cathedral length veil with my chapel train dress. I think yours would look beautiful with a chapel length veil since your train isn’t too long. Are you planning on wearing that blingy sash? Maybe you could have a veil with a thin beaded edge? I think it’d be a good idea to try on veils of different lengths at the salon first though to see what you’d like. Fingertip veils look so good on so many brides but on me, it just looked awkward, so it’s good to try them on first. 🙂 Hope this helps.

I normally don’t like cathedral veils, but it actually might look great with your dress!

I think a fingertip would be better with the dress, maybe something with a lace edging? I’m not a big fan of birdcage veils anyway, but I don’t think it will go as well with your dress.

I know it’s not popular but I think the waltz length veil would be pretty. You would get the length without over powering the dress.

@frommisstomrs.:  Haha, lesson learned, don’t ask men for fashion advice!! I think elbow length works with any dress, so that would be fine too 🙂

I love long veils myself, so I would vote cathedral…but an elbow length veil would be really pretty too, and more manageable.

If your preference is shorter then try fingetip or hip/knee length

I think a lace edge veil would be beautiful!  Something like this?

I’m with luckystar – lace trim or mantilla style with a similar lace as the dress. 🙂

I LOVE your dress! I wanted a lace dress but never found one within my budget and with my small time scale. So I made sure I got a lace veil. This is my veil, it’s a two tier veil with a lace trim. I think something like this would work with yourt dress too, although you would have to make sure the lace trim works with the lace on your dress!
