I definitely want a veil, but which do you think would go best with my dress? Traditional (would probably go for fingertip length, not too long); lace edged mantilla or birdcage?
I haven’t got a decent picture of me in the dress yet, but this is the stock photo, what you can’t really tell from the photo is that there is a subtle sparkle on the lace with sequins and little beads

I think a mantilla lace cathedral veil would look stunning with your dress!!! Who makes it? I’ve never seen a dress like it, and it’s gorgeous!!

Thanks for the replies. Yeah I’m quite tempted by a mantilla, think it would be quite a vintgage look overall. Our photographer warned me against wearing a really long veil though because our venue is right at the top of a hill, and if it’s a windy day I might regret it! So cathedral length is out.
The dress is from a shop called Phase Eight here in the UK, it only cost £375 (about 600 dollars I think) and I’m so pleased with it, it’s exactly what I wanted 🙂

Personally, I don’t think anyone could go wrong with a simple (or not so simple) drop veil (a la Kate Middleton- not that I’m a big Royal Wedding fan, it’s just an easy example) which is kinda sorta a little bit like a mantilla, but in front of the face instead of framing the face.
Found it somewhere on Google Images but that’s the basic thing I was saying.
It’s even prettier with some lace! Also found this somewhere on Google images.
