According to one of the UK's leading bridal accessories designers, Kelly Spence (www.kellyspence.com), there are seven veil lengths... but which one is for you?
45" - shoulder length: Works well with '50s/'60s-look dresses, especially with bouffant hair.
54" - waist/elbow length: Complements most dresses but be careful it doesn't obscure or cut across any detail on the back of your dress.
72" - fingertip length:A versatile length, particularly good with narrow dresses. Not flattering for dresses that flare from the hip.
90" - floor/waltz length: Not one for tall brides. This suits more petite figures looking for a floor length veil without a train.
108" - ballet/puddle/floor train length: Depending on your height, this length can either just brush the floor or cover a small 'puddle' train.
126" - chapel length: Works with nearly all dresses, and is surprisingly lengthening, so don't automatically rule it out if you are not the tallest of brides!
144" - cathedral length: The ultimate statement
veil! Great for creating the wow factor
but do make sure it will fit in your venue - it's not called 'cathedral' for nothing!
