Veil Away.....which one are you?

Here's a list I found...

Blusher:The blusher is a short, single layer veil worn over your face during the ceremony, then flipped back over the head or removed before “kiss the bride.” You can wear a blusher solo or with a longer veil.

Flyaway: The flyaway veil is multi-layered and barely brushes the shoulders. This veil is appropriate for more casual looks.

Elbow: As the name implies, an elbow length veil extends to your elbows, providing the grace of a veil without overpowering your dress. This style is very popular for more casual weddings.

Finger Tip: The finger tip veil extends to your fingertips when your arms are hanging naturally.

Chapel: The chapel veil extends to the floor, falling 2.5 yards from your headpiece and flowing over your train. This veil complements the length of your train.

Cathedral: The cathedral veil – or royal veil

    Not quite chapel length. My mom made it for me and it's maybe mid calf?

    I wore a cathedral length veil with a blusher. I LOOVED my veil!! I NEVER expected to have a long veil or a blusher, never! I always envisioned myself in an elbow-length veil, but when I tried them on it really didn't do anything for me. When we put the cathedral length veil on, I fell in love! It made me truly feel like a bride.

    Cathedral. I really didn't have any idea until I went dress shopping and they placed a cathedral veil on me to "complete the look". I knew from that moment on I had to have one for my wedding day.

    Cathedral for me! No blusher. My mom and I actually just added my lace appliques to it today. Took pictures, but no one sent them to me :-/

    I have a finger tip veil. I can't wait to wear it! I found one that actually matches the silver/gold stitching on my gown! I was married before, but this is my first veil!

    Fingertip for me! We are getting married outside so I didn't think something too long would be a good idea.

    Mine is a two layer elbow length veil. I would have liked longer, but we did it this way because I wanted a double layer to help cover a small birth mark on my back.

    I wanted elbow but I ended up with fingertip. I'm torn on if I'll wear it for the wedding or just bridal portraits.

    So I was kind of debating just wearing mine for the ceremony and photos, and then taking it off for the reception. Since it's on the longer side, I feel like it'd be easier. What did everyone else plan/do in that respect?

    I'm wearing an elbow veil! I didn't want anything in my face when I see my FH for the first time!

    I have a fingertip veil, but am really wanting a chapel length with a blusher! Or a cathedral length with blusher.

    I believe mine is elbow which I really loved since the focus is on the dress. I could be wrong and it could be fingertip. I can't remember.

    Elbow with blusher.... but I am considering flipping it so the blusher adds poof. Mine is trimmed in a thicker satin trim, so I can get away with it Smiley winking

    Mine falls between elbow and fingertip, no blusher. It goes perfect with my dress.

    Cathedral-ish with blusher. We just trimmed the silk today but I still need to hem it. But I'm also switching to a birdcage veil for the reception because I don't want to drag such a crazy long veil around during dinner.
