I think the birdcage would love nice. Your dress is very beautiful and it would be a shame to cover it up. As long as you keep the birdcage very simple I think it would fit and look "vintagy".

Your dress is beautiful!! I think the birdcage veil might be a little too busy with all the lace on the dress.  I think a pretty lace veil (that matches the lace on the dress) or a short very plain veil would look great!  You could also just nix the veil idea, and do a pretty flower or comb in your hair.  Good luck!

I agree w/MsB – the birdcage veil is a lovely vintage look.  And I think it would look great with your dress, which also has a vintage look.  The dress has such a simple and classic silhouette, and the back is gorgeous!  I think it would be a shame to cover it up.  Birdcage all the way!

I totally understand about your mom – but really, you’re not asking her to wear a birdcage veil, are you?  You should get what you think looks gorgeous.

i love it! and am totally bookmarking the page for me to drool over later.

this would be such an elegant statement to your dress. simple, classic. stunning. 

Go for it! 

 i understand the pull of birdcage veils. i also understand about the mom thing. my mother is not really feeling the birdcage either. unlike you, my dress isn’t vintagey like. though my e-ring is and i am trying to incorporate some vintage like elements…..alas…i may miss out on the lovely bircage. unless i wear one to the reception.

have you considered a mantilla veil?  i think it would look gorgeous with your dress.  i agree it would be a shame to cover up the back, but you can always take your veil off after the ceremony.
