    I think a birdcage veil will look extra classy with this dress…I agree I wouldn’t want to cover the back of this dress, its stunning

    When trying to make a decision about something visual its easier for me to decide if I can have a side by side picture. If its possible, go to the bridal store, try the dress on with the headpiece and veil taking a pic after each one. Print the pics out, lay them side by side and see what looks better. Hopefully doing that youll be able to decide. My choice would be the birdcage veil. The back of the dress is stunningg. I have always loved all her designs.

    Depends on the style you are going for.  A birdcage veil is quite retro and will give you an entirely different look to a halo of fresh flowers or a sparkly clip or band.  I think you could still do a veil for the ceremony if you wanted to keep it traditional and maybe lose it for the reception.

    I just love the name of the dress – it sounds like the title of a romantic poem! A simple flower I think would be all you need with this beautiful dress.

    I think you shouldn’t cover up the back of this dress, so either a short birdcage veil or no veil (I really like the idea of a floral crown with this dress like @jojoannanz suggested).

    If you decide on a veil, check out tulle birdcage veils as well as netted ones. One might look better than the other with this dress. Something like this might look quite beautiful:

    I wore this feather fascinator in my hair on my wedding day with my ivory lace dress. Most of the cream band was hidden by my hair. Something like this might also work for you, instead of a veil?
