    I am having trouble choosing which type of veil I want. I really love the look of a mantilla (just ordered one from ebay for $25,) but also love a cathedral style like the model is wearing. I found one on ebay for only $13. I think I will order both just to have, in case I change my mind. Which do you guys think would look better? Also, have any of you gone with a cathedral length and regretted it? I love how it looks in pictures when its blowing in the wind, but I'm afraid it will get annoying and in the way. Here is my dress...

        ohh I like both! My dress is sort of similar and I got a cathedral veil...I really think they would both be great though.

          I think either would go well w/ your dress. I love the look of a veil in the wind, but a cathedral veil was too much for me. Its just too long to deal with on the beach in the wind. Plus I'm short and I'm not wearing my veil way up high on my head. I ordered mine on ebay for $13! i have fingertip length but cause its down much lower than my finger tips.

          If you're going to get both, post pics and we can really see to decide!

            Thanks guys! I actually didn't get the mantilla. It only had 1 hr on it, and I was the only bidder. Of course at the very last minute, someone else jumped in and outbid me by $1! Oh well. I will find another. I'm gonna post pics when I get them both and go for a fitting, so I can get pics with the dress. I also bought 2 different hair flowers too. Go figure. Its just like me to be indecisive and complicate things!

              I also think both styles would look great with the dress. Sorry you missed the one though they will have more I am sure. I wore a cathedral veil I made it myself so it was the perfect length. I loved it and it did not bother me at all that day. I had my moh stand on the end during the ceremony so it worked perfect.
