I’m looking for a veil that goes with my dress: (it is this one, but in white and with the bow thing on the side removed). I’m interested in short veils (but not birdcage-material, more of a tulle material). I’m about 5’6, and quite slim. I’ll probably wear my hair up and was hoping to wear a real flower in my hair (like a white peony or something). Any pictures or ideas would be appreciated!!

Before I went the Russian netting birdcage route, I was totally set on this style. I just love this pic!

I found one on etsy.com by AnnLeslie. She was able to add crystals and had 14 colors to choose from. I got the double blusher in blush pink to match my dress. She does really good work.

Thanks girls. 🙂
I just re-read my post and I should add, that I just met with the florist on the weekend and I will not be wearing a peony in my hair, haha they are HUGE, I don’t know why it didn’t click in how large of a flower it is! It would be like a second head. Just don’t want someone else to get the wrong idea about real hair flowers when they are planning. She suggested a gardenia….

This is what my veil looks like. I’m making it myself, the netting is going to be a little shorter.

If you wanted a peony you could have a silk one btw! At any rate, remember that the edge of the veil cuts your figure…. so you want it to be a little above or a litte under (2 inches) were the gown cuts are. In your case, it looks to me like the right length for a short veil is either shoulder or elbow.
