Miss Damask — Love, love, love the birdcage AND the longer tulle veil on you — BOTH at the same time.  great find on the Jessica Alba pix. 

I just happened to do a huge search on line last night for birdcage veils… and it is de rigeur to pair a birdcage with a tulle; sensational look.

Castle Bride has the most sensational birdcage veils (hundreds apiece), but at least you can get an idea of how long these can go down the back – yes birdcages!

other birdcages that I loved — are at BirdcageVeils.cm — Lindsey, Angie, Karen, Jenni, Misi (not all long)

or at HairComestheBride, I think style JLJ-V4835

I realize you may already have what you’re looking for — and again, I LOVE what you’re doing and may very well do it too — came up with it last night and now I see it on a beautiful bride this morning! but i thought i’d pass along the treasures I’d found cause so many of the girls seem to like this this morning! and you’re all so helpfor to me when I ask.

as for the shrugs — I’m definitely wearing one — one is being made with my maggier sottero (michele), which I may end up selling.  cause I found some amazing couture dress (like an Anne Barge or sophi tolli), unknown designer, which I bought at bridal garden in manhattan.  seamstress is making a jacket out of the very long satin and beaded train.  very excited, but i’ll wait til the maggie comes in to make the choice!  also wearing a gorgeous organza choker, rhinestone bracelet/earrings, something bleu shoes (high heel satin pumps with large rhinestone brooch).  these accessories are amazing… and girls, I don’t have a single dress hanging in my closet, but I’ve got the shape and the boobs, the hair, the whole nine yards, so it’s ABOUT TIME!

Miss Damask — how long is your looker veil? I know i’s a borrow, but given the choice, how long would you have it, paired with a birdcage?

I did both – I had a fingertip length veil borrowed from my Maid/Matron of Honor and I made a birdcage veil but it sat differently from yours.  I wasn’t crazy about my fascinator, but it ended up being one of those last minute things I forgot about til a couple of days before the wedding.

I never can manage to upload photos from my mac onto weddingbee, so hopefully this link of a photo from my wedding will work.  It’s from my facebook page, so I really have no idea if it’ll work or not…

Sara Gabriel also has some birdcage veils – Mrs. Cookie got her (regular) veil from SG.  They’re pricey but gorgeous.  Perhaps you can find inspiration from her as well… although unless the website had been changed, it has sketches of the veils, not photos of them.  You can find a place that carries her veils in your area and look at them in person.

I think one or the other would look better. I’m not sure about the 2 different nettings together. Your dress is so gorgeous!

you look beautiful in your dress and shrug. I really dont like the two veils together to be honest. I think they are conflicting styles. I would pick one or the other. I think the birdcage veil goes more with the style of your shrug

Your shrug is stunning – love it.  I would choose the birdcage veil and fly solo with that veil…the two of them together is a little distracting.  You will look amazing!

I’m doing two birdcage veils.  The front one is similar to yours, except it comes to about the middle of my nose, and the other is a blusher in the back, I’m at work right now, so I can’t show you a picture I took with my hair done and everything, but I will post a picture when I get home so you can see what it looks like.  I couldn’t find what I wanted for them, so I made them myself.  It was actually much easier than I thought, the hardest part was finding the birdcage netting.  This is difficult to find because fabric stores don’t get it in as it is being monopolized by the wedding industry to sell the popular birdcage veil, but I found some millinery sites that sold it.  Let me know if you’re interested in making yours and I can give you some tips.

Here are the two pictures of my veils.  I didn’t get the good pictures, I thought I did, but you can see the front veil doesn’t come down to my chin, although I definitely could have made it that way, and my back veil is like a blusher that goes just past my ears.

Ok, I didn’t have the pictures I thought I had, but you can see what I am talking about.  My front birdcage doesn’t come to my chin, but I could have def made it that way.  The back birdcage is like a blusher and comes to just the top of my neck.
