I didn''t vote, because I can''t really decide between fingertip and cathedral. Have you tried either or both on with your dress?
Since you were concerned that your dress might be too plain, this might be a good place to bling it up a bit.I think that it would look fine, but once again, you should probably try on one with crystals before ordering it. Are you having an evening wedding, by the way?
Sidenote: You know how you were doubting your dress? I''m now doubting my veil. It''s fingertip, but suddenly I want cathedral length. I have a feeling that cathedral length might be too much for an outdoor morning ceremony though. I''m sooo tempted just to buy a cheap one on ebay and wear it around the house though.

Well, SP, I voted for the cathedral, because I think you make a good point about amping up the glitz with the veil, but I wanted to ask you, do you mind slightly covering up the back of your dress? If you have fingertip, it'll slightly cover it, but still leave a little showing. What do you think?
OMG you look so beautiful! I love the 1 tier veil on you!!!Date: 11/27/2006 8:27:56 PM
I love cathedral veils... mine is only one-tier, with just a thin satin band around the edge. My dress consultant had me try on a few different types before I chose that one, and I ended up preferring the long one because it was the least ''competitive'' with the back of my dress... I felt like the finger-tip veils tended to fall right where the detail was, and ended up looking too busy. Attaching a pic for illustration!
ETA -- Ugh, I''m sorry that pic is so big... I should have sized it down before attaching
