Hello Bees!I hope you can help me with this one. I have a lovely dress; chiffon, simple, elegant… but have no idea what veil would go with this! I love the back and do not wish to hide it too much. Also it’s a small country wedding so I want to avoid anything too big/dramatic. I would appreciate any suggestions.
I am partial to a birdcage, but not sure if that is the right choice.

Thanks – I really like the one suggested on Etsy. The material is a big factor in hor it would go with the dress. I appreciate your input!

I ordered a tulle birdcage for my wedding and was horrified when it came in. There is a reason that birdcage veils are net, the tulle stuck straight out! Maybe mine was just poor quality though. However, I love your dress, it is so flowy and elegant and I think that maybe something like this would compliment it better. Don’t get me wrong a birdcage would look great too, but I guess they just left a bad taste in my mouth.

I’m not a huge fan of birdcage veils myself, but I think some people can really pull them off.
My dress has a train that is “veil-like” like you said, at first I was pretty sure that a mantilla veil would hide the beauty of the dress and that it wouldn’t look good AT ALL, but the lady at the shop told me to try one just to see and I was surprised with how good it looked (I ended up going with an elbow length one but that’s a different story), I’m not saying you should get a mantilla, nor that you should not get a birdcage, just that it would be really helpful if you could take the dress down to a bridal shop and try on all the different styles, you might end up finding something that never crossed your mind in the first place.

@IvorySwan: I totally agree.
I think you should try on different veils with your dress on to see in person what you like best. I personally love love love birdcage veils, but they do not look “right” on me 🙂
