I’m not sure what type of veil to wear with my dress! Need some fellow Bee’s opinions! I am really drawn to the birdcage veils, but my mom absolutely hates them. Also, will this look goofy in my wedding pictures several years down the road? We are getting married in Montana in a historical place so this "vintage" feel will go with the atmosphere. And, I like to be a little different… Here is a picture of the veil I really like:
My dress is so beautiful in the back that I really don’t want to cover it up with a veil. Here is what my dress looks like. It’s very similar to the Monique Lhuillier "Calista" dress. I found this picture online:
Do you think the birdcage veil will be too much for my dress (too much netting, lace, etc)? Any other veil suggestions? Thanks for your help!!!

I think the birdcage would love nice. Your dress is very beautiful and it would be a shame to cover it up. As long as you keep the birdcage very simple I think it would fit and look "vintagy".

Your dress is beautiful!! I think the birdcage veil might be a little too busy with all the lace on the dress. I think a pretty lace veil (that matches the lace on the dress) or a short very plain veil would look great! You could also just nix the veil idea, and do a pretty flower or comb in your hair. Good luck!

I agree w/MsB – the birdcage veil is a lovely vintage look. And I think it would look great with your dress, which also has a vintage look. The dress has such a simple and classic silhouette, and the back is gorgeous! I think it would be a shame to cover it up. Birdcage all the way!
I totally understand about your mom – but really, you’re not asking her to wear a birdcage veil, are you? You should get what you think looks gorgeous.

i love it! and am totally bookmarking the page for me to drool over later.
this would be such an elegant statement to your dress. simple, classic. stunning.
Go for it!
i understand the pull of birdcage veils. i also understand about the mom thing. my mother is not really feeling the birdcage either. unlike you, my dress isn’t vintagey like. though my e-ring is and i am trying to incorporate some vintage like elements…..alas…i may miss out on the lovely bircage. unless i wear one to the reception.

have you considered a mantilla veil? i think it would look gorgeous with your dress. i agree it would be a shame to cover up the back, but you can always take your veil off after the ceremony.
