So I was set on an antique-gold birdcage veil, so I ordered one from birdcageveils.com.
I went today to check if it matched with my gown and for the heck of it, I tried on a regular veil as well. Turns out now I like both and can’t decide. Should I wear the regular veil for the ceremony and then the birdcage for the reception? If so, what part of the reception would I wear the veil over my face? And then what would I do with it? Or should I just stick or one or another? Need your opinions!! Pics of both options are in the attachments. [attachment=598144,78065]

You could wear the regular veil for the ceremony and bird cage for the reception.

Can the birdcage be fashioned so that it doesn’t cover too much of your face? Birdcages are so cute as reception wear!

i think it looks beautiful with the birdcage!

I’d say go with the long for the ceremony, enter the reception (and maybe 1st dance?) with the birdcage covering your face, then flip it to the back for the rest of the reception. Both are beautiful!

I think you should wear the birdcage the whole time. I don’t care too much for the other veil, but that’s just me. Plus, it’s a hassle to be switching veils on your wedding day. I barely had time to reapply lipgloss and to take my birdcage veil off for dancing. I couldn’t imagine having to position a new one entirely in just a few moments of spare time.

I really luuurve the bird cage because the dress already has that vintage flair I think it just makes it a beautiful piece. :o) But you look gorgeous either way!!

First, I have to say GORGEOUS dress. You look stunning. Second, I agree with amariem25–I actually prefer the look of the birdcage rather than the other veil with your dress, so I would wear the birdcage the whole time. Either way, though, you’ll look gorgeous!

I looove the long veil with that dress. It is so beautiful. I agree w/ suggestions about birdcage @ the reception.

I’m leaning towards wearing just the birdcage. I think it completes my overall look better. But I still want to hear your opinions because I am a libra, indecisive, and I need to hear both sides of every decision!!!!!

That dress is stunning! I think either veil would be okay, but I like the birdcage, maybe fastened in a different way (like Pengy said, maybe covering less of your face?)

Do you mean to adjust it to cover less of my face for the ceremony?
I was thinking to pull the birdcage veil backwards and wear it with a rose hair-fascinator for the reception.

Your dress is gorgeous. I like both veils but I think the birdcage is stunning with your dress.

Your dress is amazing! I know I’m being super conventional, but I love the look of the long veil with your dress, especially if you’ll be wearing your hair down as it is in the pictures.

I think either veil could work… but I am definitely feeling the birdcage with this dress
