I have noticed there are a lot of brides who are confused with the terminology of veil lengths. There are so many styles available these days. Here is a list of the most common veil lengths. There are also many different styles, like hankerchief, pencil edge, satin edge, embroidered edge, raw edge. I hope this helps a lot of new brides. tongue.gif

Elbow Length: Generally used for shorter gowns with out a train and will show off any detailing at the waist of the gown. Used for formal and semi-formal weddings.

An elbow length veil best compliments a dress with a full skirt. The veil should end below a low back but above the start of the skirt.

Fingertip Length: Can be worn with any gown longer than cocktail length. It falls right at the fingertips of the bride if her hands are at her side and is used for formal and semi-formal weddings.

Chapel Veil: This veil is three metres long, looks best with a long-sleeved, full-length gown.

Cathedral Length: They are used for formal weddings and generally the veil will extend onto the floor at least 15cm past the train. Cathedral length veil looks best when worn over a gown with a train.

Blusher: This is the veil that extends over the brides face before the ceremony. It becomes the top layer when pulled over the head after being pronounced "man and wife". It usually falls below the chin when in front of the face.

Thank you too.

I have ordered my veil today, it is a waltz one, almost touches the ground, ankle length I guess you'd call it.

I didn't find the design appealing.
