I bought a cathedral length veil ($15 on eBay, that’s right!) to wear for pictures and the wedding ceremony and was planning on purchasing a fingertip veil for the reception. Then I changed my mind and just decided to have a flower in my hair. Now I’m changing my mind again and wondering if I want a birdcage veil for the reception w/ the flower. Hmm. What do you think? I’ll post a picture of my dress so you can tell me what you think about having a birdcade with this dress (yes I have posted this picture everywhere, I just love this dress!!!).

Note: I’m new to the whole birdcage veil thing, so how does it look with hair half up and half down?

I was a two bride veil myself – so I wholeheartedly support the idea! I had a longer veil for my ceremony, then switched into my grandmother’s shorter, elbow length veil for the reception. It was much more comfortable.
Regarding your flower/birdcage dilemma, I’m not sure I would wear either with your dress. I feel that your dress, while gorgeous, is a bit more traditional in its styling (the classic a-line with beading and embroidery) and the flowers and birdcage veils are more contemporary/trendy. Just my thought. And of you do choose a flower or birdcage,I would go with one or the other – both might be too much…

Gorgeous dress! Personally, I would skip the birdcage and go with a beautiful red flower in your hair for the reception.

I agree, I think a birdcage would be to contemporay/modern for your style of dress. I like tilleyjewles idea of wearing a red flower in your hair! I think thats a wonderful, neat and sexy idea!

I’m with these ladies…I’m not sure a birdcage would quite go with this style. A red flower sounds awesome and dramatic! 🙂
