    I’m not sure about the wrap, but I think I would do a traditional veil

    I say go with the bird cage, your dress has a lot going on, I think it will compliment it very nicely! I LOVE your dress!!! I don’t really have suggestions on the wrap. Sorry! Good luck!

    I would say birdcage veil since there is so much going on at the bottom of the dress already. I also like clean lines for the shrug/wrap to balance the effect of the full skirt: no lace, just plain silk. Those 2 are gorgeous but you can probably find something on Etsy similar.

    I LOVE your dress!!! Somewat similar to mine, at the bottom anyways! Im indecisive. You could go either way with the veils. I’d say if you are going with traditional, then do the 2 tier elbow length veil. Maybe you could try both on with the dress and see how you like it? I’m not sure about what to do about the wrap. I understand its a Dec wedding but I would hate to cover an inch of that beautiful dress!

    Add a poll for the head-piece question!

    I’m voting for a traditional veil. I’m not a huge fan of birdcages except with very specific dresses. Although some may consider your dress as having “a lot going on”, it’s not fussy at all, just very pretty. I think a nice simple two-tier will be less “busy” than a birdcage.

    imo, bird cages are very noticeable and take alot of attention and with a dress as gorgeous as this, the attention should be on it! I just think that a veil would blend in better. But that’s my opinion, I know that bird-cages are so popular for a reason.

    And a nice faux fur shrug will be stunning as long as it’s not too puffy or furry. You will need it if it’s cold. 

    Good luck!

    Your dress is beautiful.

    To be honest, I think I’m more partial to the birdcage because it’s the only one you linked us a picture to. So the dress could look phenomenal with a traditional veil, it would just have to be the right one!

    On the other hand, I agree with everyone else. Your dress is really stunning and has a lot going on. The birdcage could balance it out.

    What’s your plan for your hair?

    🙂

    Also, I went to a winter wedding last year, and instead of bouquets, the bridal party used these “muff” things. Apparently they’re legitimately called muffs.

    Kept their arms warm, and they were really pretty in pictures!

    i think you’ll pull out a unique modern look with the birdcage 🙂 plus you’re dress is beautifully fluffy you want that to stand out
