    I love the way fascinators with just a bit of netting and flowers or feathers look, particularly on modern, short hair. The shorter dress is a modern, unconventional choice. I don’t think it would pair well with a full veil. Defiitely not a cathedral length veil.

    Gotta go with RedAngelDreamer – I think the styles would clash. A shorter wedding gown says “less formal” while a cathedral veil says “really, really formal.” I know there’s some wiggle room there, but I think it would be hard to pull off. Try it and see how it looks before you decide, but I’d be surprised if it didn’t look a little funny.

    I have mixed feelings on how it will look but I did find a couple photos for you!

    @scadadle15:  Yeah I just think that looks silly IMHO.

    OP I voted for everything and anything other than a long cathedral veil. I just think it will be too much veil for your dress. You chose a short dress for a reason, I’m guessing simplicity/comfort etc…why opt for a long and very formal veil?

    I really like the fascinator idea they are so pretty and you can get them with a birdcage veil on Etsy.

    I think I’m going to have to agree on this one.  I’m personally not loving the idea of a short dress and a long veil.  Fingertip/elbow length is as long as I think you should go, though I think a birdcage would look fantastic with your dress!

    @soontobeMrsBoo:  I think a birdcage veil would look awesome with your haircut and that dress!  However, I think the long veil could be kind of fashion forward, so do what you like!
