there are so many veil discussions, i'm overwhelmed!

i didnt want to start another thread BUT, when i searched i see that everyone wants to ask, veil or no veil, and talk about long veils, but i'm interested in shorter ones, i really really want one that combs in just below the crown of my head, and isn't any longer than the top of the back of my dress.
i know what color, details, fabric width, cut, etc, but no clue what length to order! i was thinking 18-20", but worried it might be TOO short?

are there any gals out there with upper-back to shoulder length veils who can chime in for me?
see? like hers!

abbie, did you look at obridal.com and look at the design gallery that shows how the lengths look on mannequins?

yes but it's so hard to tell on fake people i tried the measuring with a string thing like they suggest, but that's also hard to picture.

i didnt like the looks of any of the testimonials lengths, maybe cause they were not the EXACT kind i want, so again, hard for me to picture it! i think i might go buy some veil fabric (tulle?) and "pretend" on myself so i can see what i think? might work.

but yes, i'd appreciate the pics if you've got any!

Abbie I don't know that I have seen a lot of shorter veils lately, but I do know that a few girls made their own veils so if you can't find what you want, perhaps you can make your own...also I added "shorter veils" to your title so you can hopefully get more help and it will come up in searches from now on.

    You could just go to a bridal shop and try on veils of different lengths. I wanted a short veil too. I went to David's to do this and ended up getting a blusher. I wanted short and simple with no edging so this fit the bill. Best part was that it was $20. I wore it with the comb tucked in the middle of my head tucked above my bun. It fell around my shoulders.

      i tried a couple of their blushers on as well, but they felt too long. they weren't exatly what i wanted, but it's because of them i'm determined to get a more simple, plain one than what i've got.

        Hey chica.

        I got about a 20-24 inch veil that is "elbow" length or shorter. I am just sticking it in the back of my bun (in my hair).

        It's similar to this, length-wise and I got it off ebay! LOL:
