I’m personally a fan of the super thin but long veils that play in the wind really well. I think that would look really good (like the one in the picture you put up) but honestly, I’m just not a birdcage fan…just thought I’d throw that out there.

I think you need a short veil, maybe like Mrs. Star’s?  That strap on the dress is really gorgeous and you want to show it off!  Actually, I like the bride with the hairflower in her hair instead of a veil, but that’s just me.

I agree with PP, I like the flower in her hair.  I’d go along those lines to avoid taking away from the dress too much.  I was originally going to go with a birdcage veil, but then I decided I would do a really pretty rhinestone clip instead.

Something along these lines…http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=34928148

Or even something like this…http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=36932779&ref=cat3_gallery_17

Good luck deciding!

I like the idea of the long thin drop veil.  I think that the dress is so gorgeous that putting too much quirky accesories all up top will make it look more costumey than I’d prefer.

I agree with jwinnings..that dress is so gorgeous and has such stunning detail, a simple flower in your hair with maybe crystals would be perfect!

i’m a veil purist i believe all brides should wear veils, it’s the only time in the world that they’ll have a chance to.  I think a flower in your hair would be beautiful as well as a veil, but that’s just my opinion…

I definitely agree that you need to wear a flower but I love the way long veils flow in the wind. Something like Mrs. Quiche or Mrs. Avacado had for the shoot she and her mother did in Italy.

Personally, I find birdcage veils to look awkward with long gowns! To me, your gown look ethereal, fairy-like. I would probably match it with a waltz length veil with falling Swarovski crystals like this:
