Well.. we’re three months away from getting married, the dress is at alterations, but I still have not decided what kind of veil I should wear. I was initially set on a birdcage veil, but now I’m thinking that a cathedral veil would go very well with the dress as well.
So I need your help in deciding what kind of veil I should wear with this dress (it’s white in the picture, but mine is ivory)?
Birdcage, cathedral, or something else?
Thanks for your help!!

I am doing a catherdral for the ceremony and a birdcage (flipped over my side woop bun) for the reception. 🙂

Personally, I don’t think that style lends itself to a birdcage style very well. Have you tried any of them on with the dress yet? It’s really hard to tell what’s best without seeing them together.

Try out a fingertip w/ maybe some beads or sequins sewed on the edge. IDT a birdcage is your best option for this style.

I think the dress is very elegant and would look nice with a one tier catedarl or fingertip.

I say cathedral because that is just the most romantic look and it will go so well with your dress! I am slightly partial to it because it’s the style I chose, and while I do love the birdcage style I say cathedral. I really don’t like fingertip or any mid-length, they don’t have the drama of the cathedral or the stylish pizazz of the birdcage. Either style would look good with your dress so I say go with what overall look you want to achieve on your wedding day: sexy and stylish with the birdcage or soft and romantic with the cathedral?

Something in between the two.

I chose cathedral because I like that look more then a birdcage but I have seem some brides look very unique with it too — and beautiful.

Thank you ladies for all your input! After thinking about it, I’m going to start shopping for a cathedral length veil, but I love the idea of changing into a birdcage veil for the reception, so I might have to shop for two!
