This dress for some reason makes me think Vintage Hollywood Glam (1930s, 40s, high fashion 50s) so for that reason I say you should go with a Birdcage veil with a trendy hat or a fascinator.

GOOGLE – Birdcage Veil – to see a wide assortment of images.

Hope this helps,

Yep, i agree. The short cage veil will be the best choice. Or the veil length is at most at the waist. What do u think? it seems that ball gown floor length wedding dress assorts long veil with long train.  Just FYI.

OoOo, first of all. I <3 the dress, it is stunning. 
2nd how do you plan to wear your hair? I agree a bird cage veil would rock with this. I think something with a nice vintagey type flower too.

Like this ๐Ÿ™‚

I’d much more prefer to see you in either a fingertip or cathedral length veil with this dress. Something super simple.

I would do either finger tip or chapel.  I like long veils. ๐Ÿ™‚

@Toastymama:  I initially thought birdcage too! That would provide a very glam feel. However I also think a chapel or cathedral would make it more soft and romantic.

I am the same, I like long veils too but sometime I think they can take away from your dress, the only reason I am having a veil is because I am using part of my mothers. We took the two tiers off and used one fingertip length tier and I added a diamonte comb.
I think for the styles you are going for, you may not be able to have a veil unless you pin it underneath the hair style. If you had a simple birdcage you could pin in to the right side of your head/face but then you need to be careful not to cover the hair style too much.
I say google heaps more images and then once you have the dress on, take it shopping with you to bridal shops so you can try on their veils and birdcages with it. If you go for a veil I think you would have to keep it simple, maybe a nice edging on it?

@Toastymama:  OoOo, I love ebay. It is amazing hey. I also got my lace parasol off ebay like $16 each, so cheap compared to $45 in Adelaide!!
