Ha ha.  Too bad you’re not a bird cage kind of girl, you nixed my first thought!  🙂 

I think you probably could pull off a veil with this dress if you wanted to but it would also be stunning without.  Is there a way you could go try it on with veils somewhere?  Maybe try one with a flat ribbon edge to mimic the tiers? 

Gorgeous dress by the way!  I love it!

Have you pictured yourself in a veil?  I prefer seeing a veil on a bride at least during the ceremony.  In my opinion it pulls the entire look together so well!

Maybe a birdcage viel?  I like that they give the feeling of a traditional veil but are so chic and classy.  I think it would look awesome with your dress — it kind of looks like Mrs. Sea Breeze’s and she had a bird cage!


ps your dress is GORGE!

I think it is gorgeous without a veil, but to me it is related to how you feel. Personally I fall into all of the cliche wedding-ness and had to have a veil. But I know other ladies that went veil-less because it was not their style and they wanted their wedding to look and feel different from the norm.  Maybe try a few on with the dress? I know I tried on more veils than dresses! Its a though decision! Good Luck!

I think a veil would look gorgeous with that dress, but that it looks great without one too. It’s all about what you want to do. I know what you mean about not being the birdcage type of girl. I love them, but I would feel silly in one. 🙂

I love your dress and I think it’d look great without one and then wear the flower you mentioned.  I think it does look a little more modern, if that’s what you’re going for.
