My Dear FH and I disagree on veils
I love birdcage veils with a little hat (or something of interest, like pearls or a brooch) like this:
While he likes around elbow length with at least ribbon edging like this:
My dress is a fairly simple fit and flare:
and I’m planning wearing my hair a bit like this:
Can anyone think of a way to have a veil that makes both of us happy?
(P.S. He HATES feathers and feels rather strongly against most hats)

I am wearing a veil like the one your FI likes for the ceremony and changing it to a birdcage style fascinator for the reception! My dress did not work with a bird cage veil but the fascinator is just right!
You could do the same, so you please both you and your FI

Oops, I should I add that I’m not keen on wearing something in my hair during the recption. Halloween I had a small pillbox hat on and managed to hit myself in the head a couple times because I didn’t lift my arm high enough in a turn.
But good idea

If you are going to have that pretty retro hair…I think the birdcage veil looks awesome with that style
Why don’t you just get 2?
The long one for the ceremony and the birdcage for your pics and the reception
