    I personally don’t like birdcage veils, but if you like it and that’s what you want, go for it. Here’s a pic of a girl with a birdcage veil almost like you’re describing and it’s on a lace dress (and then a few more pix after that):

    I think you should do something really plain & understated. Here’s a picture of my veil. It’s barely there, but I loved how bridal it made me feel.

    (that is not me in the first pic, but it is me in the second one)

    @TheHaw:  I don’t personally know of another option to not cover the back. My friend had a beautifully detailed back of the dress and the front was completely plain because the back was so intricate. Unfortunately, no one saw it in the ceremony and the photographer didn’t even capture her going in from the back anyway – but her veil covered it, she just wore an elbow-length veil and it covered it. She also continued to wear the veil for her first dance, which I thought she should take off bc of the back of the dress.

    I think you have 2 options – get the birdcage veil or get another veil that covers the back of the dress but then continue to wear the cap sleeves and lace back through your first dance where you take the veil off and then midway through the night, take the cap sleeves off – like around when dinner is first served or something or just before the cake cutting and your exit.

    ETA: The barely there look is beautiful!

    @TheHaw: Lace dress – I’d take advantage and wear a Mantilla.

    @TheHaw:  Gorgeous dress! I voted for birdcage that way you don’t cover up your dress. Plus you can wear a kick butt fascinator as well!
