I am struggling with the type of veil I should do. I’ve been thinking a long veil because my dress is a tulle ball gown, no train. I thought I’d like the veil to give that train look. But I did some searching and most things say you should do a fingertip veil with a tulle ball gown.
What do you all think?
My dress: What type of veil should i do? 1
Long veil I’m considering: What type of veil should i do? 2

Or fingertip evil: What type of veil should i do? 3

My dress is ivory/cashmere with a light blush color under the tulle skirt. I’m think an ivory veil would be my best bet. But which length?

    My dress has a really long train so I'm doing a short veil. Since your dress doesn't have a train I think you should do the long veil!!

    Agree with pp. You said you were leaning towards a longer veil and the one you picked would look stunning with your dress!

    I like the longer veil since you don't have a train. It's more elegant to me. I feel like the shorter one one in the picture is a lot of extra look when you're already in a ballgown.

    I have a tulle ball gown with a big long train but I’m still considering a veil not be use of what “they say”. The veil on mason the I’m looking at is also ivory tulle with simple edge possibly with rhinestones. If you want one, get one. my dress is similar color as well.

    I have a weird thing about veils - I haven't gone shopping yet, but I'm more excited about the veil than the dress. I think long veils are heaven-sent and a must (personally), so I vote wholeheartedly for the long one!!

    Go for a long one! You can't go wrong. Mine is long as well so I'm a bit biased

    I love the long veil! I think it will look so beautiful with your dress. I especially love how the floral detail on the veil compliments the pattern on the bodice of your dress. Also, that dress looks like it was made for you! So beautiful!

    Thank you! I was surprised at well the dress fit when it arrived! As long as I don’t gain or lose weight between now and March 13 the only alterations I’ll need are to shorten the shoulder straps a little. They were a little long.

    I have a tulle ball gown with a very short train. I went with a Waltz (knee) Length veil. Cathedral veils do get heavy and caught on everything but they are beautiful!
