    I personally prefer medium length to birdcage with a fit n flare but frankly, who the heck cares.  If you want a birdcage veil then damnit, you should have a birdcage veil πŸ™‚

    @missE2mrsG:  LOL what?! That’s hilarious. I’d look at the prices on the veils in her shop. I’d guess that’s more the motivation for her “helpful suggestions”

    Good lord. Some of these people who work in bridal salons are really ridiculous.

    A birdcage veil is not going to make you look wider, I promise you. For crying out loud, it’s a headpiece, how would that make you look wider. That is one of the stupidest things I’ve ever heard.

    My seamstress made my veil, its simple.  What I wanted was a two tier elbow length veil.  But oh wells…i also like to wear it high on my head and she moves it down.

    I think we just have different visions of how it’s supposed to be.  I’m happy with the veil but I will be wearing it high…bam!

    I’d choose whatever veil style you want and chalk it up to having different style tastes.

    Im wearing a birdcage, and I’m a size 24……if it makes me look “wider” then oh well, I like it….that’s stupid that she even had an opinion, it’s your life, your day and YOUR veil. Screw her. Lol

    @missE2mrsG:  You must also consider your hair style as that will impact on the veil you choose.  Or thinking the other way, your veil will impact on the hair style.  Where are you going to place the comb.

    In the end this is the one special occasion that you can wear a veil, so pick what you want, then show the hairdresser and get her/him to show you how you can wear the veil.

    Love veils, the longer the better.

    @missE2mrsG:  Dumb and NO. Just remind your rude cow of a seamstress of Nanny Fine’s wise words: “the bigger the hair, the smaller the hips.” I think this can apply to veils, as well. πŸ˜›

    @notestasiskis:  Haha no, I was thinking more along the lines of “the shorter the veil, the smaller the hips.” But that still wasn’t a very well-thought out connection. It was meant more as a cheeky comment in response to how ridiculous OP’s seamstress sounds.

    How does a veil make you look wider? That’s ridiculous. Choosing a less flattering dress shape might do that–but NOT a veil. Wear whatever makes you feel beautiful and special on your day! 

    I LOVE birdcage veils. That’s what I’ll be wearing–no matter what anyone else says about it.
