I’m keeping my dress a secret from almost everybody so I can’t turn to my friends for help…so what do you think, bees?
This is my dress (on another bride):
The back is really special so I don’t want to cover it up with a traditional veil:
I really want to embrace the 1930s feel, so I’ve been leaning towards these two options:
A juliet veil like the one below, minus the velvet flower (to be replaced with something a little smaller and more delicate: maybe a brooch or even just a nice piece of embroidered lace.)
Or a bold art deco headpiece, no veil:
Or I suppose I could wear the veil for the ceremony and the headpiece for the reception…
Let me know what you think!

I also tried on this dress. It’s so beautiful! I just wasn’t tall enough and the proportions weren’t right for my body.
I agree that you shouldn’t cover up the back of the dress. I think you could go with a bird cage veil for the ceremony and the headpiece for the reception. If there was a way to get a bird cage veil to attach to the head piece and then you could remove it and keep the head piece in for the reception – I think that would be a nice option!

I love the second headpiece you posted!

Your dress reminds me of Kate Moss, who wore a juliet cap veil. You could still see the back detailing of her dress:
I do think a birdcage would look lovely, too. Not a fan of the headband.

I love the headpiece! I don’t think you need a veil, you could just wear the headpiece.

OMG this dress is GORGEOUS!!! I have looked at pictures of it many times and just LOVE IT!!!
I love both the veil and the headpiece. Do you think it would be possible to do both?! Veil for the ceremony, then headpiece for the reception?
You better post pictures after! You are going to be insanely beautiful with this look.

@Ms Bookworm: You’re so sweet! 🙂
And, yes, I think I’m leaning towards getting the headpiece and then maybe putting on the veil for the ceremony. My mom can probably make the veil so at least it shouldn’t be too costly.

Wow I’ve never seen a juliet veil. It’s so gorgeous. That would get my vote, and I like the idea of maybe doing two different things for the ceremony and the reception.

I love the idea of a juliet veil! Seems to just work so perfectly with your dress style !
