I am so indecisive about what veil to wear with my dress
At first I wanted a mantilla, but I don’t think I do anymore
I really really want a birdcage veil, but when I think of a church wedding, I don’t know why I feel like a traditional veil is the way to go.
What to do???

What if you did both. A more traditional veil for the church and a fun birdcage for the reception?

Have you tried them both on with your gown?
That may help you decide.
I wasn’t going to wear a veil at all, but my youngest son was very adamant about me wearing one, so I will be wearing a mantilla veil. I was very surprised at how nice it looked when I tried one on.

What does your dress look like?

I haven’t tried on any veils with my dress – I don’t know how to do that
I already have my dress here, ready and altered, and don’t think I would take my dress somewhere just to try a veil on. Maybe that’s the thing to do, but it seems strange…lol.
And I cannot afford two veils, unfortunately.
I guess I should order something online, try it on, and return it if I don’t like it? Can you do that on Etsy???
Here is my dress:

i agree that your dress shoudl really guide your veil choice. i also agree with stlginkgo that you can do both veils. i feel the same way abt bird cage veils i just love them but then they dnt evoke the traditional church lifting of the veil

I would go with a long mantilla or cathedral lenght veil with your gown. It is beautiful. In my opinion, a birdcage wouldn’t look as good. Maybe a facsinator for the reception.

Mantilla veils are beautiful, but I don’t know why I feel it will be overkill for my simple wedding (20 people, church ceremony, and a very nice dinner in a private room in a beautiful restaurant)
Also, this is the back of my dress – its unique -does it matter if the veil is longer or shorter?
