    I think a mid-length veil would look best. I love the train on your dress!

    Normally, I’d pick a cathedral length veil because I love how dramatic it looks, but in your case, I think a mid-length veil will be better because your train is gorgeous and no way I’d cover it up. 🙂

    I think the train of your dress is gorgeous and you shouldnt cover it up!! also I think your dress has a more modern feel…so a mid-length would look better.

    Mid length all the way. You don’t want to hide the bottom/train of that dress – it’s gorgeous!

    It’s unanimous – do not cover your train with a veil! That would be such a waste! I actually like a short, simple veil with this dress, since it has so many layers of fabric. I ordered mine from etsy, by the way, for just $24!

    I agree!  That train is GORGEOUS!  It’d be a tragedy to cover it up!

    Mid-length as I think a longer one would hide the ruffles of the dress

    Cathedral!  A simple cathedral-length veil (rolled edge, no bling or lace!) will allow your train to shine because it won’t create a line on your dress where there isn’t one . . . your guests will be able to see through your veil to your train.  A shorter veil creates an abrupt line – and an abrupt visual *stop* sign* – that segments your dress in two.  And, imo, a shorter veil does not seem to fit the formality level of your dress.
