    I would go with the black birdcage with the rose… something nice and sweet and simple that won’t add any more detail to the back view (with the amazing dress and your wings, I think adding a veil to that equation may ruin it and have too much going on? JMHO.

    Amazing dress! I’m sure you (and your wings) will look gorgeous ๐Ÿ™‚

    Gorgeous dress. I definitely think a birdcage evil of some type, and i prefer the first one to the second. I think the black rose will go with your dress better.

    I love the birdcage with the rose!  I feel like the vintage look of it sooooo nicely compliments your dress.  The others are nice, though the first one REALLY caught my eye and I think would look awesome.  (for lack of a better word)

    Gosh that dress is beautiful.  Probably one of the prettiest dresses I have ever seen! I LOVE the black.

    All the veils would look good with the dress, but my vote is for the black mantilla.  Something about the lace in the dress and the lace in the veil would look gorgeous together.

    I don’t think you could go wrong with any of them though!

    I think the black birdcage veil is so awesomely dramatic without taking any attention away from the dress or your angel wings, like I think a longer veil would. the rose is just a perfect complement.

    I really like the birdcage with the rose – anything else would take away from the drama of the dress, IMO

    Oh, I love that dress so much. I’m a huge fan of black and white together. (I did black accents for my wedding too.)

    I think since it’s such a statement dress (and you have wings…please post pics!!) a more subtle veil would be good. I love that black birdcage…

    I would vote for a birdcage veil that has the rose from veil #1 with the sheer tulle of veil #2. I’m just not loving the netting-style veil of #1, but I like the rose! And I agree that a birdcage would look great with the dress.

    I LOVE your dress. It was my dream dress. but I’m plus sized and can’t find it anywhere to try it on. so I got another dress, I doubt it’d look good anyway on me. lol. But for as the veil goes, I say 1 or 5. OR maybe do 5 for the ceremony, 1 for the reception? lol
