    I really think that either veil could work.  However, I really like the thought of the mantilla veil with your dress . . . I think the lace adds a little more dimension to it.

    Also love the hair.  Very pretty!

    I like the mantilla veil — you can always switch to the birdcage after the ceremony for a more fun look, and keep the more traditional mantilla for the ceremony.  I love your dress, by the way!  Gorgeous!

    I think the mantilla veil would look great with your dress! You could always switch to a birdcage later if you want to have both!

    I love mantilla veils– so gorgeous!  Is your dress in yet (I’m assuming that’s you in the pic?)?  If your fittings are at a bridal salon, can you try on a mantilla with your dress at your next fitting?

    I really think it’s all about the “look” you want to present at your ceremony and reception.  If your food, flowers, band/DJ, ambiance, etc. of the ceremony site and reception site are “modern” and edgy, then the birdcage veil would work.  If your ceremony site is very traditional, if you have more of an antique or traditional or timeless feel to your flowers and reception site, etc. than the traditional long veil is going to work.  That dress is beautiful and will go with either look I think.  But your look really has to dovetail with the look of the day.  You will set the tone of the day in many ways.  Your veil and dress will be the first thing many guests see at your ceremony.  So people might say “Oh, what a fashionable, edgy look” and expect that feel the rest of the day.  I am not trying to put more pressure on you– but I think the whole look really does send a message.

    I say do both! Which is what Im going to do, you can wear the mantilla for the ceremony and the birdcage for the reception!

    I think the modern dress with mantilla veil would be a little strange, but maybe you could smooth it out by getting the most modern mantilla you can find (I know, it’s kind of a contradiction). Also, I think the mantilla is much better for the hairstyle you have chosen.

    IMO…I think the dress looks really modern and think the birdcage veil would look great with it…I think the mantilla is pretty, but doens’t really make sense with the dress…it’s kind of like old school meets new school to me.  Maybe try both on with your hair done and in your dress to see how you feel.
