What about a Juliet cap style veil? It would look great with your dress style and vintage theme! I would suggest chapel or cathedral length!

Do you know what length you like?  You said no birdcage…so do you want a really long one, like catherdral?  Or you thing fingertip length is also really pretty.  From the pictures, I would suggest maybe doing a veil with swarovski crystals or something a little blingy to go off the brooch on the leg and help it pop!  i think that dress is absolutely beautiful…you can always do a shorter veil that ends by your shoulders to show off the back of the dress and the corset.  It just depends on what style you like and feel most comfortable with 🙂  Good luck and let us know what you decide to go with!

@rdownie1:  Oh geez, this could go in all kinds of directions….you have to look at pictures and get kind of an idea at least of what length you like – your dress is very versitile and would look good with any length veil!

Here: this might help: which length just ‘grabs’ you?….

This is the veil I chose. It’s Edward Berger style 4401. I bought the store’s display and saved 40%, I believe. I love the simplicity of it, since my dress has such a pretty back. 🙂 Do you have any idea what length/style veil you’re looking for?

I went with a fingertip length mantilla veil that I sewed a comb onto.  The comb was my something old/blue–it was a blue crystal comb my MOH gave me.  I guess it was advertised as a mantilla when I bought it, but it was just a giant circle of plain veil material–my dress was very complicated so I wanted a simple veil to balance it out.  I also had my hair down, so I didn’t want the veil to be fussy.

I had a friend who had a large bump on top of her head because she got a veil with two layers (blusher?)–I didn’t like how that came out in her pictures so I ended up going with a flat one.

Also the length showed off the dress.  Here’s the only picture I really have of the veil on–I haven’t gotten the pro pics back.

@AmandaJK:  +1 after seeing this veil….this  OP gets my vote! Gorgeous and I think it would work perfectly with your dress!
