- Wedding: March 2014
So I picked up my dress 2 weeks ago and had my first fitting. I’ve tried on a traditional veil with my dress and it just didn’t look good. I think it is because the veil blended in with the textured tulle skirt. I also have short hair and I just didn’t like it.
So…I love bird cage veils as long as they aren’t huge. The wedding is in 6 weeks and I don’t have a clue what I am going to do. The salon I got my dress from specializes in birdcage veils and they could make one for me quickly. They make the veils for birdcageveils.com. I have never tried one on so I don’t have a clue how I would look. I’m going to post some pictures and you guys tell me what you think. I need to order this ASAP.
Here is my dress on me—ugly face and all. My hair is a little bit longer now and I am planning on wearing it in light curls for the big day…I think.
Here is the style of birdcage veil I like. I would definitely get a smaller flower fascinator though. And I like the veils that just go to the forehead.
What do y’all think? Can I pull it off? Does it go well with the style of dress I have? I would love to hear feedback!
