I never thought I would be the bird cage veil type, but apparently the fiance loves them.
I havent gone dress shopping yet, but when I do I need to keep that in mind. I have read that mermaid dresses go best with bird cage veils- but I don’t really think I have what it takes (or I may have too much of what it takes LOL) to rock the mermaid. hahaha

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.

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.
