    Do you have any pics with the veil on your head? If we can see where you initially positioned it, we may be able to offer specific suggestions.

    I like the second way the best. It doesn’t look too long, actually. =]

    I think I like the last picture best. I’m not a fan of the longer birdcages.

    I didn’t vote b/c I think that maybe the seller sent it a little longer on purpose. I think you can very easily figure out how you plan to position it on the day of…then trim it to the length you want it to be.

    @MrsBrightSkies: I just trimmed my sister’s birdcage with a pair of scissors. She put it on, and we positioned it how she liked it best…and then I just trimmed material off until she was satisfied with how it looked. Once we got it trimmed properly, I took a picture of it so that I could remember how to position it the day of. Find someone with a steady hand and go for it. The key is to remove a little bit at a time.

    what about tilted to your other ear – so not backwards, just slightly tilted so the veil goes over your forehead?
