I am trying to decide whether I want to wear a traditional veil, or a tulle birdcage style veil. I don’t think I want a blusher, but I think I may still want something over my face. If I go traditional, I was thinking a cathedral veil (as pictured), but I’m really jsut not sure what is appropriate for when, and if a birdcage style veil would clash with my dress. Please Help! Suggestions are all welcome!

What a beautiful dress!! If you only can get one veil, I think either a cathedral or fingertip veil would be lovely with this gown. However, if you can swing two, and want to jazz things up for the reception, you could absolutely change into something more “mod” (i.e. tool cage) for the reception. That would be fun and your guests would enjoy the second look on the beautiful bride!

I am wearing both — and I have very short hair! The long veil (chapel length) is in a comb attached to the back of my head, and right above it will be the comb for the birdcage I’m making myself (will be an explosion of pearls and crystals!). My birdcage will be long, come down to cover my eyes, since is has to go so far back on my head. I love the look and never planned to wear a long veil. Until my consultant at David’s Bridal said, just try it and plunked it on my head…. and I was hooked.
You could do a tulle blusher but have it only come down to your nose.
So you can do both — sexy and bridal, without wearing a vegas showgirl dress!
I’ll just take the long veil off for the reception.
Here’s the combined look (scroll down, can’t copy picture) http://www.birdcageveils.com/index.htm

I think that a traditional type view would look best with that dress.
