It is a cute veil and I love your dress, but I wouldn’t do it. I, personally, don’t think it goes toghether, but depending on your personality and the look you are going for, you might be able to pull it off. I know I wouldn’t be able to. Maybe you could get a reception dress to wear it with, instead.

Well, since you asked us to talk you down… hehe…

Sorry but I really don’t care for it. The way that it covers the back of your head, and the bows as well, look very odd to me. I agree that it doesn’t really go with your overall look. I’m all for a vintage look though! I bet you’ll be able to DIY something totally fab. Hope you didn’t mind the brutal honesty, and good luck finding (or crafting) your perfect veil! ๐Ÿ™‚

You are very welcome. And you are correct, “50’s tea length dress kind of thing”.

I think you could totally make a green one with velvet bows and it would look darling, but with a different dress. And I know if you made it yourself, it would also cost less.

I am also a “vintage freak”, so I know exactly where you are coming from ๐Ÿ™‚

I think it is cute but agree it does not go with your dress at all.

I also should add that your kids may soon come home with acid washed jeans and big hair – the 80s are back! I saw an acid washed stretch denim mini skirt while shopping this weekend and am seeing big hair and neon colors everywhere. While I’m not on board with the acid wash (yet) I do love some neon colors!

I agree with the others, it’s an adorable veil, but it doesn’t work with your dress. Even though you have blue shoes, the shoes are going to be covered for the most part so now you’ll just be wandering around in a blue veil. I think it would look funny. It really would be best with a little tea length dress when you could show off the matching shoes. I say stick to your DIY plan. I think a little white veil would be perfect.

What about a white birdcage veil with some sort of blue accent? Adding a blue flower, or a white flower with blue crystals in the centre or even a few blue feathers could be a more subtle hint of something blue.

Flowers like this are really easy to make – google organza flowers for heaps of tutorials.

My friend wore an awesome black birdcage veil with a large white flower and peacock feathers… Her dress had a black sash so it matched perfectly.

i like it but i think it would go better if your dress was shorter.  like if you could actually see your blue shoes peeking out from your dress.

I say go for it, it is beautiful and unexpected… If you are worried about it matching your dress add a blue ribbon to your wast, i really think it would be awesome

I agree with @snuggly. Maybe you could include just one element of this veil into your DIY version. The blue veil is unique, but, as others said, doesn’t go well with your dress. Good luck!

Another fun idea – if you really want something genuinely vintage, you could add a vintage brooch to your birdcage veil… even a blue one! Or you could have a hint of blue in your fascinator and a vintage blue brooch on your dress. Here’s a cute one to start that could easily attach to a DIY veil.

I think it’d be cute for the reception, as a way to change-up your look and make it look different from the ceremony…
