Here's my dress
I'm short, 5' 1" and will only be wearing 2 inch heels. I will probably wear my hair with fingerwaves and pin curls, very 1940's like. I have a fake fur wrap to wear with my dress too.
My dilema is, WHAT VEIL SHOULD I WEAR?
I have no idea and I think I've tried on every kind out there. I don't know if I should get a super long one, a finger-length one or something shorter because I'm shorter.
I don't know if I should get lace or beading or satin edge trim.
The only things I do know is that I don't want it to be poofy and I do like the idea of sparkly beading on it to go with my gown.
Ugh - ladies please give me some suggestions/advice on this.

If you image google "birdcage veil," you can see tons of pics.

Do you have to have a veil? I think that the birdcage veil is more your style for 1940's, but i personally don't think I'd like the bird cage w/ your dress. I really think w/ finger waves and pin curls may be best w/out a veil all together.

Although, that dress is gorgeous enough on it's own.

A sparkly hair flower would look really pretty and go with the vintage look. From that picture alone, I am picturing a single tier floor length/cathedral length to compliment the train. The back is so pretty I wouldn't want to cover it up.
I can sympathize with being short. I found that the shorter veils were better. I think mine was elbow maybe? I wore it up high and it came to mid-back. The longer veils tend to visually cut you, making you look even shorter.

I would def do as the others ladies suggested; get your hair trial and then go to a bridal store and try on veils.
I am also picturing a birdcage veil for some reason with that dress and the look you are going for.. and I can also see what Erin is suggesting with the sparkly hair flower!
