I don’t have a veil suggestion but your dress is awesome!

great dress — very unique (compared to what ive seen at every wedding ive been to!). I agree, a shorter veil would be better. How do you feel about fascinators? or even a veil that hits just below the shoulder could work.

Your dress is beautiful!  I think choosing a veil would be tricky with that dress, because the neckline is so pretty, you’d want to leave that open.  What about a birdcage or a hair flower instead of a more traditional veil?

Love the dress. Honestly I just wouldn’t wear a veil. Look how gorgeous the model looks with just a headband. But if you are set on one then I think the birdcage or shoulder length idea is best.

I love the idea of a birdcage veil too!

I’m not loving the bridecage idea with that dress although it could work, I may be totally wrong. I say a large flower, they have a ton of artificial pretty ones on etsy. Personally I love how the model in the picture has her hair with the hair bands. Those bands sell all over these days.

The dress is so modern. I think it would look awesome with one of those great headbands by Jennifer Behr! http://www.jenniferbehr.com/

I agree it is so modern looking. Its GORGEOUS though!! I cannot picture a veil with this. A pretty headband or some other kind of headpiece . The birdcage veil could possibly work, but I am not that fond of those either. I’m curious to see what you end up picking. Keep us updated!

maybe just a tiara instead of a veil? I’m not wearing a veil because I’m getting married on the beach and well, windy days…enough said 😀

Oh, I looked up before I posted so I second that on a tiara/headband idea or flowers! 😀

Why don’t you dress it up like the Grecian then? Put a veil with headband on over it, it will keep it in the back and make it look very whimiscal but grecian goddess type of a deal.

Or pin the veil to the updo so draps over the bun like the girl in the picture with the headband. I think that could look very modern but goddess.

I think the key to those, are long and simple and keep it in the back.

Here are some similar ideas to get a visual:

You can’t see the veil b/c she is sitting on it, but it’s pinned underneath the updo
