    That dress has a fun detail on the back, so I’d go short or long. An elbow or fingertip veil will compete with the details.

    I always love birdcage veils, but I think they go best with vintage-inspired dresses. Since your dress has a pretty modern silhouette, I would personally stick to traditional veils. I think an elbow-length veil would be too busy right where the details on the bodice and back of your dress fall, so I would avoid elbow-length since you want to highlight the  details, and not hide them or distract from them. So I would stick to a fingertip length or cathedral length tulle  veil, whichever is your preference – because I think both would look great with your dress! A cathedral length veil would be really beautiful and dramatic, that would probably be my first choice, so I voted for that 🙂

    But if you are in love with birdcage veils, then by all means you should wear one!

    I think fingertip length would look fabulous 🙂

    @MrsRayner:  I know, it’s so hard to only have one shot!! But don’t worry about it, especially if you’re going to take it off after the ceremony!
