    Birdcage veils are so classic and beautiful so I say that with a small pearl bracelet and earings And some peep toe shoes.

    I actually wore this dress for my courthouse ceremony!

    I couldn’t decide on the veil debate so I ended up buying a lace hair piece since i wore my hair in a curly style.

    I think birdcage veils always go better with shorter dresses.

    Definately a blingy or color coordinated wide belt, tied off to the side. Then either pearls or diamonds/crystals For jewlery. Go for simple and elegant. Blingy shoes to go with the belt would be fun too! You didnt say what your hair looks like…is that you in the 2 veil pictures? I think either one is lovely, it just depends if you are a veil person or not.

    You chose such a pretty dress! I have a tea length dress as well and I chose a traditional veil, I feel more bridal with it! But I think either one would look great with yours. I think a sash would look lovely with your dress, either something in your wedding colors or just a blinged out one.

    ohhmaigosh:  I think if you want it to look more bridal, go with a traditional veil, like the first photo, add a blingy sash and some drop earrings!  How are you going to wear your hair?

    Bird cage veils are gorgeous with tea length dresses.

    ohhmaigosh:  definately try the different options on. I’m wearing a tea length dress and initially planned to wear a birdcage veil but when I tried it I found i didn’t like the look on myself. I’m now wearing a fingertip veil instead

    I think an short/elbow length double veil would give it a very cute retro vibe

    My best friend wore a very similar dress, and she wore a wide pearl bracelet and a bandeau birdcage veil.

    Personally I think birdcage veils are overdone at the moment. They are a handy accessory to make a non-vintage or semi-vintage dress appear more “vintage” overall.

    i think your dress would look darling with a short, poufy retro style veil- maybe even Swiss/polka dot tulle? you can try different lengths such as shoulder, elbow etc.

    i love the sound of pearls and little white gloves. Happy accessorising 🙂
