    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:

    thanks for the pic cmmdee! (sorry, dont know your real name yet!)
    that really helps with the visual and the length, i like the length of the shorter piece, and that should be the 20'' part, so i'm thinking 18" might be where it's at for me. i'm only 5'3" so i dont have a super long neck or back.
    thanks!

It fell around my shoulders.

        I did this too. 20 buck blusher. Perfect no frills just simple!

          I have been back and forth with the idea of having a veil. If I do get one, I also want it to be short, as I don't want to have it covering the back of my dress. I also appreciate all the info on here from everyone else. Thanks for starting this thread too DougsGirl!

            Pisces, your veil is identical to the length of mine.

            Dougsgirl, yeah seriously I only spent $15 on my veil on ebay! :) That includes shipping LOL! And I hear you on not wanting to go too long with it. I'm 5'4" and I also think of how HOT it's going to be!!! Crazy!

            Hugs,
            Erica
