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.

headoverboots :  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.

headoverboots :  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.
