I am not sure I want to wear a veil. Fiance wants me to wear a birdcage or blusher. I doubt either of those will look good, since I am wearing a ball gown. But maybe the veil doesn’t have to be exactly the same style as the dress (i.e. wearing a ball gown is princessy, so princess type veil). What do you think? Did/will you wear a ball gown and not a long, full veil? Go/will go 100% veilless? Share your photos PLEASE!!!

I have a ball gown and I want a catherdal veil but the one I want is $900 so….I will just have a shorter veil, the one past my shoulder. Whatever they are called. I don’t think a blusher/bird cage would look good with our dresses.

I wore a ballgown and went with a cathedral length veil.
I think to pull off a birdcage veil your dress would need to have a vintage look and I would say that matters more than the shape of the dress. Personally, I hate having something in my face so a birdcage veil or a blusher would have driven me insane.

I had a cathedral veil and I highly recommend wearing a veil

I think Fiance just does not realize it actually does not have to go over my face. I think I need to show him more photos.
do you have photos?

I have purchased a ballgown and a cathedral veil. I honestly think you have to try them on, as they all look different and different dresses complement different veil styles.

I had a lovely flower crown 🙂 I think if you want a veil ballgowns look best with fingertip to cathedral length veils. Just wear what you want and surprise him.

I would try some veils on, you might find the cathedral length veil too much, particularly if you’re not sure you want a veil. I’m not sure what the technical term but I tried on a veil that came to mid-calf and it was far too much. I also tried one with something over my face and it made me feel claustrophobic. I settled on one that came to my elbows and didn’t cover my face.
I wasn’t really sold on the veil, it was mainly my mum and DH that wanted the veil. Mum wanted me in a cathedral length veil and was welling up with the longer one until she saw my face. Personally, the veil is something that ended up annoying me and I’m glad that I didn’t spend any money on it (bridal shop threw it on for free). Try some on and if you don’t feel comfortable with a veil, don’t have one. I know I’m a minority here but I really hated it on the day.

Cathedral team!! They look amazong with a ballgown and make you look more slender and put together, I loved wearing mine and was actually missing the llok when I took it off for the party!
