I am wearing a traditional veil for sure for the ceremony(pretty sure) but want something special for the reception and have always loved birdcages!!! I would wear a crystal headband if I went that route something like this
I am wearing Allure 8764 in white and would not want anything set off to one side or the other because of the shoulder detail on my dress
So maybe a birdcage with crystals on it to add some sparkle?:) I am wearing halo earrings from Berricle.com and they are just studs.
What would you pick?? My dress will be white with a mermaid slip under to poof it out Thank you!!!

I would go for a birdcage veil. Timeless and beautiful.

I would go with a headband, not personally a fan of birdcages

I’m partial to birdcage, but I think you’ll look nice with either one 😉

I had a dress that was sort of similar to yours (I wore Maggie Sottoro Bernadette), and I would say “Definitely go for the headband!” I wore a birdgage veil and a feather fascinator for the ceremony, but it was surprisingly annoying to see “through” the veil.
It might be ok if you wore the birdcage in such a way that it did’t go over your eyes, but I think the headband would be more comfortable. I took the veil off immediately after the ceremony and just wore my feather fascinator the rest of the day. Here’s what mine looked like though.

@Mrs.LemonDrop: Holy crap you are GORGEOUS!!! I am now contemplating if I want to wear one for the ceremony or reception after seeing you! I would def.wear it pushed back for the recep:)

@cherryblossomlove: Wow, that is so nice of you! Seriously, I never did a recap because I got a running injury the month before and submitted my MA thesis the week before so I gained 10 pounds (when I wanted to be losing weight!) and I felt like my dress ended up not fitting as well as it should have.
Anyway, I did my hair and makeup myself. The hair was actually pretty easy. I’m not at home right now – and I actually just posted this one on another thread, but this is one of the better ones I have access to atm where you can see my hair. If you want me to dig for a better one of my hair later, let me know.
