To Veil or Not to Veil, That is the Question...

>> Tuesday, October 28, 2008

Since my engagement the question about the veil has been on my mind. I have always said that I wouldn't wear a veil at all because I can't stand for hair to even be in my face much less a veil. Then I came across the Birdcage Veil and oh how I fell in love! My mind changed completely, I think the birdcage veil is just sleek, chic & sexy with a vintage Audrey Hepburn feel. The problem I'm coming across is what type of dress it looks best with. In everything I've read it suggests wearing it with a trumpet style gown or a drop waist. I don't want either, I am more for an A-line gown.

I did come across this beautiful bride with a birdcage veil and an A-line style dress, I think she looks STUNNING! I love the black and white first of all then the fact that she has a beautiful birdcage veil on with the style dress I like. I think when the time comes to for me to go dress shopping I'm surely going to give the birdcage a try!

I'm wearing a birdcage with a trumpet style dress, and like you I was worried about how the dress would look with the veil. So I made a "test" veil with some netting from a fabric store and tried it on with each dress when I was dress shoppinig-- that really helped visualize it all together! I love birdcages and I also think that bride looks gorgeous (btw, I got my birdcage from Melody Ginn, who I believe made the birdcage in that photo!) Good luck! :)

Thanks Ladies! I love Etsy I will have to check those out. I will be making myself a "mock veil" when I go dress shopping, that's a great idea!

I found your blog through brassy apple, but I wanted to say, I did not have a veil when we got married, but even now I wish I would have. I love the birdcage one that you have posted and I bet it would look great with the dress your find. Good luck.

I love the birdcage veil! I haven't found my dress yet though, so I'll have to wait and see if it goes.
