I would love to see that dress with a great birdcage. I got mine from YJDesigns at etsy. I hiiiighly recommend her. Don’t forget to have her add some crystals!

Hmmm….can you share a bit more about your wedding?  That might help determine which would fit best — but if you’re truly torn, you could do both!  One for the ceremony, and the other for the reception.  Mrs. Sea Breeze is making mine — check out her site and see if you’re interested in an existing design…or a custom one!

I’m doing both! I really wanted a birdcage in the beginning, but my mom was "eh" about it and really wanted me to get a tiara and a veil, so I tried on a regular 2 tier veil, nothing fancy, and I liked it so I got it, and I also saw a beautiful tiara. However, I started to regret it and I caved and bought a birdcage! I plan on wearing the tiara during the pre wedding photos, tiara and veil during the ceremony, and then afterwards I’ll switch to the birdcage! I might wear the birdcage for some before photos a bit as well, but we’ll see. I don’t want to muss up my hair too much by switching back and forth too often.I bought mine from Etsy and I think it’s beautiful! The seller was brendasbridalveils I believe

i love birdcage veils (im wearing one!) but i think your dress would look amazing with a long (like elbow-lengh) veil.

As fun as birdcages are I think I would vote for the longer one with that dress (which is gorgeous on you by the way.)

Well the dress has got an antique kinda look to it (by the way I LOVE IT, who is it by?) so I’d say a birdcage.

I’d do both – long for the ceremony and birdcage for the reception. 

I LOVE birdcage veils – my dress just didn’t look right with one but your dress would be perfect!

You can do both as others have suggested.

That dress screams birdcage though. Mermaid cut dresses always look glamorous w/ birdcages. Your dress is gorgeous by the way.

Thanks for posting this because I never thought about wearing one and now I might.  I think you would look fabulous in either one if you could afford both I think you  should go for it.  I just found out the my Fiance loves them and now I might wear one.

Totaly would do both!!

A beautiful traditional veil for the ceremony & a fun birdcage for the reception.

It’s a beautiful dress & would look great both ways.

It’s your big day so why not do both. Have your cake & eat it too!!

You look great in your dress! I think a fingertip veil would suit the look of your dress perfectly 🙂

In that dress, you could rock either.  I went for the more traditional elbow-length veil with beading around the edge with my mermaid-dress (see my avatar) and felt very glamorous, even though it wasn’t a birdcage.
