So I’m trying to figure out what to do about a veil/headpiece. I’m not totally sold on the idea of a veil, but if I do one, it will be a birdcage veil. Here is my dress (on the model, not me):
I have found some fascinators/headbands that I like. Here’s the catch – I have VERY fine hair – hiar combs just slide out after 2 minutes, so I’m thinking a headband would be better and more long lasting. This is the one I’m drawn too but I’m not sure if it take the whole look very far from “bridal”
Here are two others that I have found that I like.
Any thoughts on these shown? Any other ideas? I’m not a huge fan of feathers 🙂

I like them all, but my personal taste is the sparkly headband. Your dress is beautiful!

They’re all so beautiful, but the sparkly headband is what I would choose. It will look great, and you wear it all night.

The headband is my personal taste, but I voted for the brown. I love how it looks like a warmer, darker version of the dress-sash.

I voted for the headband, I think you should keep it really simple. It’s truly the most classic, and I don’t think it will look dated in photos. Also, it won’t distract from your (gorgeous!!!) dress the way the other two do; both veils are pretty busy-looking and I think would draw eyes upward.

I think the brown fascinator style goes best with the dress, I’mjust not a fan of brown. I like the color of the ivory fascinator but the style isn’t as suitable IMO. All three options are still lovely, I would just try to find the brown fascinator in ivory? Btw I ADORE your dress!

I like the first and third one best!

I also have very fine hair and combs don’t stay in it, but with the fascinator you could get it pinned in with the right bobby pins and they should stay. I’ve found that Scunci brand bobby pins are the only ones that keep my hair up all day.
And, btw, I really like the brown fascinator with that dress (which is really beautiful btw!)

I voted headband, and only because I don’t like the feathers on the ivory fascinator!
