    What about adding a separate blusher veil, like this:

    @slpscientist:  I would say to add the “blusher” (2nd layer that would go over your face) with no lace, like in option 3 that way you still get your original veil and just get the coverage. You can also opt to have a bird-cage style that covers the face or a drop veil that would cover your face in addition to the original one you have that way you can completely remove it when you no longer need it.

    You wouldn’t necessarily have to completely remove it during the ceremony; just have someone (FOB, MOH) flip it back out of the way when you’re finished with it.  I’m not familiar with Jewish ceremonies, so is it something that you would just wear down the aisle, or something you would need to wear through the vows, etc?

    Do the blusher! I love blushers. Here’s what mine looks like and I’m planning to just have it flipped for the kiss 🙂

    @slpscientist:  I would get the detachable blusher.  Then when you remove it you will still have your lovely veil for all the photos post the ceremony.

    But you can also wear it as a drop veil.  My daughter did this with her veil.

    Honestly, the veil is so transparent that it will not totally cover up the feathers as long as you ensure that the ‘lace’ part is below the feathers.  Besides, everyone is just so amazed to see you in your bridal dress etc. they probably will not notice the feathers until later in the day or at the reception.

    @slpscientist:  Sure do.  Here are a couple of photos that I hope will help.  We had a lot of fun with her veil. This is the inspiration veil.  Circular, 3 mtr veil.  Then we added beading and crystals around the bottom and scattered all over.

    Walking to the ceremony and for the first part of the ceremony the veil was in front of her face.  There were mininum crystals on this part of the veil so you could see her face properly.

    Then the veil was lifted.  The veil was pinned to her hair with some crystal headed pins by the hairdresser.  There were about 6 pins that were easy to pull out and not spoil her hair because the pins had large crystal heads on them.

    Sorry for the big images.  Hope they help, I have more but I think you will get the idea of how it looked.  She was very happy with it.

    Also remember, the more lace (or bling) you put on the veil the heavier it is and the more pins it will need to secure it to your hair and keep it there.  Her veil was quite heavy.
