While I love birdcage veils (bummed that my mom 100% hates them) I think the look best with vintage dresses.  Yours is fabulously modern (little jealous as I could never pull that off). Have you thought maybe ditching the veil for something sleek like a head band?  The model just looks so geat with the minimal look, that is am sure you would to.

@Chicagobride36:  I love the birdcage fascinator above! I think it would look great with the dress!

@Chicagobride36:  I think a birdcage veil would look great with that dress! And i love the one you posted, so classy.

For what it’s worth, I wore a birdcage veil with my dress and I have zero regrets!

Great dress! May I ask who the designer is?

That is such a chic and elegant dress, I love it! Because the lines are quite modern, almost architectural, I wouldn’t go with a birdcage veil (which always looks very vintage to me). If you want a shorter veil, I would go with fingertip veil – you could opt for one with a raw edge silk trim, or very subtle crystal detail if you wanted.

I wore this dress for my wedding. Adored it!!!

I actually wore a double layer full length veil by Sara Gabriel (Phoebe veil) and loved the delicate horse-hair trim with the soft overlay at the neckline of the dress.

I think you should consider a long veil (as opposed to a birdcage). I don’t think veils necessarily tke away from the dress (just like J-Bride above, beautiful!). Besides, you can always just wear the veil for the ceremony and leave it off for the reception, which is what I did. Best of both worlds!
