Wow, your hair is gorgeous. 

Yes, you can definitely lift the veil using a birdcage veil. You can get a birdcage veil that is long enough that it needs to be lifted in order to kiss, in case you’re worried about that looking weird.

A short veil might look a little funny, but you could try some on to see what they look like on you.

Your hair is beautiful! I have long hair too – though not quite that long (mine is hip length at the moment) and plan to wear it down for the wedding. 

I had the same internal dilemma either having a long veil covering up my hair, or a shorter veil that (potentially) looks funny. Personally, I didn’t like my hair sticking out past the veil. What I decided was to wear a long, simple veil for the ceremony, but then take it off and leave my hair down and visible for the reception, with a small sparkle comb for an accent. That could be an option to consider!

Either way, go to a place that will let you try on a wide variety of legth veils and just play around with it until you find the veil length you like. If you find one short enough to look intentional (maybe shoulder length?), it could look great!
