Wow…tough decision! First, I like the straps. They are beautiful, and then you wont have to worry about pulling on your dress. As for the veil, I LOVE the look of the birdcage, but I would take what your fiance thinks into your decision. I had to think about that as well. I asked mine what he pictured me in and it all sounded very traditional. I went with a unique and will probably go with a traditional veil. Good luck!

I’m a birdcage fan too, but I like the way the elbow length veil looks on you with your dress!

I think you should keep the straps, their beautiful! And I like the birdcage best, which is weird for me because usually I go for traditional.

I usually am very pro birdcage, love them! But, in this case you get more of the “wow” factor with the regular length veil, it is SOO pretty and compliments your dress more then the birdcage 🙂

I loooove the birdcage on you! Could you maybe find a cheap veil to wear for the ceremony, then wear the birdcage for the reception?

I’m also trying to balance my funky tastes with my mom and my FI’s more traditional tastes.  I plan on wearing a veil for the ceremony, then switching to a big flower in my hair for the reception.

Your dress is gorgeous and with so much beautiful detail, I think the birdcage is a great complement!

I went through the same debate…since I only spent about $30 on my (regular) veil on Etsy, I figured I could add in a birdcage and not feel guilty about it, so was going to be more traditional for the ceremony and then do the birdcage after…but my hair person was hesitant about it – pulling out my long veil and putting a different one is was definitely going to mess up my hair…so in the end I’ve just opted to go birdcage for the day – and the mister loves birdcages! 🙂

Oh gosh, you look so beautiful! I love your dress on you and I’d say keep the straps! I think you get a definitely more dramatic and romantic effect with the traditional veil.

I actually love the regular length veil – I think it goes so well with your dress!! I agree with previous posters who mention maybe switching veils between the ceremony and reception.. that way you get to have both looks!


Also side note – your dress is gorgeous!!

love the dress – it’s gorgeous. the birdcage looks great with it. if you were doing a regular veil, i’d suggest doing something really sheer but longer actually.

I’d have to agree with the loving the straps and the regular veil.  The birdcage veils are gorgeous, but with that dress I really like the regular veil.
