    If you like #2 best, I have almost the exact same one that you can have.

     

    Personally, I like the very first one 🙂

    I like plain veils personally; so I’m not a fan of 2 or 3; I also think that the beading on 2 will clash with the sparkle on your dress. However, I agree with your mom in that I think a cathedral length veil will look odd with a dress that doesn’t have a train.

    Have you considered a chapel length veil? They’re long (floor-length) but not as long as a cathedral length veil, so, you won’t have a lot of ‘spare’ fabric trailing on the floor. Could be a good compromise?

    Oops, I got confused and voted for 2, but meant 1.  I love the length!

    I picked #3 mostly because of the length. If you could get a elbow length version of #1 that would be my pick.

    I disagree with your mom saying that the veil shouldn’t be longer than the dress.  It’s all about the look you want!  My dress has a train, but my cathedral length veil is longer than the dress still and I love how it looks.  I noticed that you posted veils from venus veils (I’m assuming on eBay) though.  I actually bought a veil from them and I found the quality of it was terrible.  The material they used felt so cheap and stiff, and even after I steamed it, it didn’t fall right.  I really tried to convince myself to like it since I had already bought it, but I just couldn’t do it.  I ended up buying another one from an Etsy seller and it is 1000x better.

    I think fingertip-length is more flattering than elbow-length.

    I think either the plain veil or the rhinestone veil would work best with your dress.
