I don’t think a birdcage goes too well with the feel/style of your dress.  I think a drop veil would look really beautiful.

@sarasouth: How about a longer length of drop veil? That’s definitely going to look beautiful with your dress, which I love!! 🙂

Honestly, I just whisked a bunch of veils on and off at the shop until I found one that made me stare for longer than 5 seconds. But I loved the lace edge veils.

I like the idea of the drop veil for the ceremony, and something different for the reception. Do you have a pic of you in a bird-cage style with the dress?

I’m a fan of the “traditional” veil – blusher and all. 

I’m actually doing what you’re thinking of doing. Mine is a folded mantilla veil (I don’t wear it like a mantilla – it’s worn like a drop veil) with plain/raw edges. What’s nice about this is you can make it any length you want; for example mine is 50″ in the back and the “blusher” is 26″. 

I think it’s so romantic and graceful – and I agree, I think a traditional veil would go better with your dress. Here’s a pic for reference

@soontobebyrdy: I really love your veil. Did you happen to order it online by any chance?

I don’t think a bird cage veil goes with your dress either. I love embelishment free veils (mine was cathedral length, embelishment free with a blusher). However, if you want to add soem lace from your grandmother’s how do you see this playing out? Have you tried on her veil? Maybe you could wears her veil for the ceremony? I think your dress is simple enough that lace edges would work as would a clean simple veil.

I think a plain drop veil would go perfectly with your dress, but I agree with it being longer. Maybe a fingertip length?

@jagboo33: Thank you! 🙂 Yes, I ordered it from etsy. The one I have on in the picture is from CLCOSTADESIGNS, but there are a few things I don’t like about it so I ordered another one from a different seller (GracefullyGirly) and it was much better quality 🙂

It’s cool to finally be able to look at this thread now that the wedding’s over. One of my favorite things last Sunday after it was all over was to be able to look through the folder marked “KEEP OUT” on her computer and see all the dress pics that I wasn’t able to look at before.
