I think a birdcage veil would fit beautifully with your theme. However, a birdcage veil might take away from the delicate detail of your dress..just something to think about. The picture you provided has a traditional veil which looks great!

All of your ideas would work.  The one in the photo is lovely.

How about traditional cathedral length with a pencil edge or a mantilla for the ceremony and a birdcage and flower for the reception?  Long veils are so elegant but not always comfortable to wear after the ceremony.

It’s a way to have both looks

I like fancifaieri’s idea.  I love love love the long veils, that’s what I want to get.  It looks like your dress has nice lace detailing all over, so definitely just do a one-layer veil so you can still see through to the dress.  What does the train look like? 

Wearing a birdcage veil or a flowers with a small bit of netting at your reception would be a nice change and would work with your vision.

I think you should do a cute short birdcage maybe…

The only problem with mantilla and birdcage is that they are pretty trendy, so you’re wedding photos might date you in a few years. (Although I LOVE both of them…) 

You can always go for a shorter fingertip-length, lace edged traditional veil for the ceremony and switch to a fun, vintage headpiece for the reception. 

Good luck! (And sweet dress!)

If you stay with the same type and color lace there is no reason why you cannot have a Mantilla.  This is a very classic look.  If you had a ton of ruffles I’d say stay away from the Mantilla. 

If you think the lace is too much you could always do a Mantilla with a silk ribbon edge (very narrow (1/8") up to 2 ", or satin cord for something a bit different.  The ribbon wouldn’t be fussy and you would still have your Mantilla.
