    Only because you said you were having a non-traditional funky reception…i say go with the bird cage! it’s different and looks really cute 🙂

    I voted no veil! I think if you’re having a non-traditional reception then I would just rock a flower. I don’t know that your dress fits well with a birdcage, to be honest.

    Or, you can do like I did. I wore a traditional ribbon edge veil for my ceremony and then took it off and just wore my hair flower during my reception.

    I really like the birdcage combined with the dress – it’s not an obvious choise, but with your hair and facial shape, you can ROCK it! But also, I’m wondering about a veil that is longer in the back but shorter in the front? (If they make those?) Because the classic is wonderful with the dress as well and looks lovely on you as well.  Sorry I’m not much help!

    I really like the birdcage veil. I think it looks really lovely on you. And in my mind jives a little more with an outdoor ceremony in Central Park. 

    If you’re leaning more toward the traditional veil, I like what @zippylef suggested: to wear the veil for the ceremony and the flower for the reception. Brilliant!

    My dress is pretty similar to yours, and I’m doing a traditional veil for the ceremony and a birdcage for the reception (my birdcage is just over my forehead and on a headband, so it wont get in my face or annoy me lol)

    Pretty dress! I would do a cathedral veil with a lace trim for your ceremony. Really rock it out and go the exta mile with the lace on the dress and veil and the length would look incredible. then do the birdcage for the reception.

    traditional veil for sure!! And with that dress I think I would pair it with a cathedral length veil.

    I love the traditional veil with maybe a raw edge instead, would hate for anything to take away from your gown, just let it all flow together! =)
