Wedding Wednesday: Veils

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

I have wedding veils on the mind, and I'd love for you guys to weigh in!  While I know you really need to see my dress to make a decision, I'm going to make this difficult without showing you what the actual gown looks like.I've narrowed my veil choices down to a traditional, raw-edged veil... either cathedral length or fingertip length.

So as a general, rule, which look do you prefer???

I had a silk cathedral length one so I have to say that it's my preference- just love the glamour! Whatever you choose with be gorgeous:)

I like (and am doing) finger tip. I just like how its a modern take on something so traditional!

Of course it depends on the dress (sure it's gooorgeous), BUT a girlfriend of mine did chapel length last year, which extended just a smidge past the train of her dress. i loved it, pretty and classic with a little less drama than cathedral length.

good luck deciding!!

I love cathedral lenght veils - they are simply stunning. I am wearing one for my wedding in a few weeks as well! :)

Annie I did cathedral length and was absolutely in love with my veil, but I think it also depends on how each one looks with your dress. I prefer the drama of the cathedral length veil when the bride walks down the aisle. XO Ana

My inspiration always tends towards the glamorous, but then when I actually put my outfits together, they tend towards the practical. If you're planning on wearing it throughout the evening, I'd say do finger tip!

Hi Annie! I got both lengths and will wear them together...the best of both worlds!

You will obviously look amazing in either one... but I think since you're getting married in a church and will most likely not wear it all night (right?), you should go all out glam and do cathedral length. Just think of the photos!

love the romanticism of the cathedral length, but i'm doing fingertip. didn't think i'd actually go for a veil at all, but when else will i wear one??

things to keep in mind...cathedral looks stunning in still photos, but when you start walking down the aisle, it doesn't stay perfectly spread out, but narrows behind you. you also can't wear it all night.
the fingertip length you can wear the entire evening, if you so choose. i mean, how often do you get to wear a veil??? ;)
all that said, you can do both -- attach the long with velcro to the short, then we can easily remove it for the reception!

I wore a cathedral length in our cathedral church and loved every minute of it. I love how it moves with the wind and is never quite perfectly placed. My veil came over my face in the front down to my fingertips and it was an amazing feeling. I only wore mine for the ceremony and bridal pics. I say it you are going to the get veil, go all out!! It is the princess factor. :)

Cathedral length is so pretty and dramatic, but I love how fingertip length veils look. They seem really cute. I wore a fingertip length veil and was happy that it didn't cover all of the detail on my dress.
