After about 3 months of trying on dresses, I found my dress and veil today! I love my Mori Lee Go...
The length of the veil you choose will depend on the style of your wedding. A cathedral length veil will not work for small intimate civil ceremony. Equally, a funky vintage birdcage veil will not work in a Cathedral.
The three most popular veil lengths are cathedral, hip length and shoulder length.
Cathedral is full length and will come to the end of your train; this length is dramatic and almost ethereal, and just frames any gown with a soft mist of tulle - so dreamy. Tall and small girls can make this length work well; can you tell it’s my total favourite?
Hip length is also known as fingertip, and literally ends at your fingertips. These look best on tall girls as they make petite girls look smaller. They are perfect for girls who simply find the whole full length veil overwhelming, and to be honest, they are best for less formal weddings.
Shoulder length is precisely that. It sits just beyond your shoulders and will work on any height of bride. These can look soft and gentle and are simply lovely and really easy to wear.
