my dress is a really big and bouncy ball gown, pretty much like Walt Disney's Cinderella. What veil length goes best with that type of dress? Thanks!

I've seen pics with all sorts of lengths...but I think part of that is related to hair length the day of and veil length...I think veil is suppose to be longer than your hair.  I've liked the pictures I've seen of those with veils sitting lower that hang down to mid-back...and aren't as flouncy as the gown (like some of the single layer, or I've also seen people that have combined the short ones making one veil and those have looked cool too!)

This is my gown, very poofy bottom, and I'm going to go with a veil very similar to this one.  My hair comes down to almost my waist and will be down for the wedding, and the veil will be four layers (I'm adding two to the two that are already there for more body) and will be just longer than my hair.

I'm also having a big pretty ballgown dress, and I'm having a fingertip length single layer veil.  My hair is long and will be down so I need something that will stay longer than my hair.  Also its got jewels in it and is the same color as the dress.

I've been considering this as well because I really like cathedral veils but it would probably look silly at the back of a full ballroom skirt.  How would one ensure it fell right?

 

I wanted to use a veil instead of a train.
