I have a dress with a STUNNING back (she says so modestly) and I was planning on not having a veil. But then. I put one on!!! I felt complete, like a real bride. I don’t love birdcages because I have a large head and it makes my head look even bigger. Hm.
So I dont know what to do – longer veil that covers up the back or try the birdcage after all, I am being too hard on it or no veil.
This is a picture of my dress from Maggiesottero.com

That dress IS so stunning on its own, I think a veil would just take away from it. And I don’t think a birdcage would be the right style, and the others just seem too long. No veil.

I would suggest a beautiful feather/flower facinator. Think twigs and honey. I have a gorgeous hair flower that I got from her. It really completes the look. Something like this maybe? http://www.etsy.com/listing/45711423/flourish-single-bridal-hair-piece

Go with a long veil for the ceremony, then take the veil off for the reception entrance 🙂 wow-factor!

I know what you mean abou tthe vail, I had originally decided on no vail and a flower, but once i put the vail on I felt like a real bride! Now I’m doing vail for the ceremony and flower for the reception.
I think we need to see you in the dress!

look at starbright333 recent post with her long cathedreal veil. plain and simple yet gorgeous! doesn’t take away from her gown at all! she is wearing ” grace” you would be able to see the back of your gown!
search for final fitting of grace

I’d say a simple, 1 tier cathedral for the ceremony and then nothing, but maybe a flower for the reception.

Yes, that back is STUNNING but I think you should wear a cathedral length veil and here’s why. You could get a simple one, just one layer of tulle and that’s it which will be sheer enough to still see the back at the ceremony and still give you that bridal feeling. Then at the reception you’ll take the veil off anyway so that’s plenty of time to show off the back! You get the best of both worlds 🙂

I say if the veil makes you feel like a bride, then go for it. This is your one chance! Maybe a long veil for the ceremony, and then a nice hairpeice for the reception..I think that would be fun.
