Well I wouldn’t pair a huge ballroom gown with a birdcage veil.  (That’s not to say it can’t be done though.)  Since the birdcage is kind of small, more sassy and less subdued, you need a slightly-sassy dress to match.  If it’s curvaceous, all the better!  I think any dress with a long silouette would be best, such as a drop-waist, mermaid, fit-and-flare, or trumpet.  But stay away from sheath, empire waist, or anything with a massive skirt.  There’s my two cents’ anyway.  Smile

jenbrandner seems to have hit the nail on the head.  I agree that a very traditional or very formal dress would look odd with a bird cage veil.  I think it’s pretty safe to say that a ball gown could look goofy with a bird cage veil.  As would anything too bohemian or ethereal or fairy-ish (e.g., empire waistine).  Or anything too “beachy” would be strange, too.  I think a birdc age veil requires something a little more modern, slightly trendy (“sassy” was a good way to put it).  Or something kind of retro-glam would of course be ideal.
