I’m not a fan. I don’t think I’d want to wear anything people described as a hairnet on my wedding day.

yeah, with a bit less lace for a simpler effect, more like the one I posted in reply 8, or this one, but without the tail.

Maybe go with a blusher veil if you don’t want something long?

Might just be me, but I personally think most cap veils give off a lunch lady vibe. Would you consider a birdcage at all?

I’m so obsessed with cap veils atm, so I absolutely love this, only suggestion would be bunch it looser like the last pic you put up then have the bit flowing down, instead of ending underneath your hair. Maybe if you parted your hair on the side more and had a couple of tendrils falling down to soften the look. Well done though, so impressed, I’m rubbish at anything fabric related and got a dress maker to make my cap veil

Oh whoops just read the comment about not wanting to cover the back of your dress, sorry what about to the nape of your neck?

Don’t like, doesn’t suit your face well, could be how close it is to your scalp.
Have you tried on veils in a bridal store?

Reminded me of a hair net- although I do get the look you are trying to achieve but I don’t think this is it.

@Eckle: I love the idea you’re going for! I think it looks classic and regal!
but like some other comments have mentioned, more volume in the back would give it a better look. ith the hair pictures I think it’ll look lovely! Some of the comments are super blunt so I hope that doesn’t discourage you To keep playing around with it, maybe allowing more of the he veil to drop in th back will avoid the lunch lady implied look.
i love it, I think its unique 🙂

I thought that she looked Amish like that too!
I would leave you hair down OP with a side parting. The flowy hair would suit your dress.

I’m sorry, but all I can think is “lunch lady”, and I think there’s a reason you don’t see veils like this =
I like the hairstyle you’ve chosen, and you could always skip the veil and wear some kind of headband/hairpiece with it.

Honestly, I don’t find cap/Juliet veils flattering on most people. I think you could do much better, OP!

There is absolutely no way I am leaving my hair down for my wedding. My hair is very thick and I’m getting married in August in Wisconsin, think high heat and humidity. It would be a sweaty mess before I even got to the venue. I also can’t side part my hair and still expect to be able to see because there is so much of it. I can only do a side part if it is up. An instructor at a very large well-known beauty school told me I have the thickest hair he’s ever seen, and he sees hundreds of people a day :/
Bird cage veils are really not my style.
Thanks for actually having constructive comments. 12 comments repeating that I look like an Amish lunchlady are not very helpful. I’ve never worked with tulle before and it is more difficult than it looks at first glance.
