    Honestly, I don’t love any of them 🙁  Maybe something other than a satin trim would look better.

    At weddings I’ve been to, everyone takes off their veil after the wedding ceremony.  You have such beautiful hair; is that an option?

    @MrsLongcoatPeacoat: I’ve seen that a lot, too. My SIL took off her veil and wore a flower in her hair for the ceremony, so if you want something you could try that

    how about a plain cut edge single layer?  i’m wearing a sinlgle layer chapel length for the ceremony and changing into a fingertip length veil.  (i’m making the veil myself.)  i thought about not wearing one for the reception but when else will i get to wear a veil?  and i’ll only get to wear the long one for about 30 minutes.

    I love the cascading style, and would definetely vote single layer.  But I think that having a raw edge instead of the satin might be better for the reception.  A bit less formal, more laid back look for the party.  Sort of fades away into your dress, but you still are wearing a veil.

    @MrsBrightSkies:  I agree with this. Or maybe crystal along the edge, to complement the beaded/crystal sash?
