hi i'm having a cathedral length veil with my dress i also have a long train but thats only because i fell in love with my veil in the bridal shop the first time i tried the whole lot on together . i think you should just wear which ever one you like with your dress x

i have a long train and i wanted a long veil so i got cathedral length.its one tier with crystals all over. but whatever you think is nicest on you go for it. it doesnt matter what style dress you have really.

Haven't decided if I will have a veil or not, but thinking if I do, it will be a Cathedral one one tier. Don't want a long train, but I think the veils can be shortened if necessary...I know the trains can anyway. I am only 5'2, so a short train will probably look longer on me anyway. What is the difference between a cathedral and a chapel veil or are they the same thing? I have heard both mentioned.
