Hi all, I wanted an outside opinon on my veil options. I’m posting some pics of my dress with the birdcage. I’ll also post with a headband. I’m not sure if the birdcage veil goes with the dress. I might wear a traditional veil for the ceremony, and the birdcage for the reception.
What does the hive think?

It’s cute, but I think it needs to be a little longer maybe? I always thought birdcage veils were supposed to go to your chin. Otherwise it’s more of a fascinator. But it’s cute I do like it. And I like the idea of going traditional to the birdcage.
PS your dress choice is awesome! A friend of mine wore that to her florida wedding and it just looked stunning on her. Also….it’s really cute cropped to a cocktail dress if you want to continue to wear it after the big day. I’d totally salvage that baby! Maybe even have it dyed red.

I think that if I were you, I would want a flowy veil. A longer one, not birdcage. Your dress has wonderful beading, the birdcage gets kind of lost in the picture. If that makes sense.

Personally, I don’t think it goes. Your dress is so romantic and soft, and the birdcage veil/fascinator is a bit too retro. I love your dress, though! I think it would look beautiful with a simple, flowy veil–no edging, no embellishments, nada.
