Help me: Veil or no veil?

I had my final fitting over the weekend. I ended up having her take out one layer of crinoline so it's still a ballogown, just not SO big. Here is the final picture:


I had my final photo 3384698-1 


Buuut, I'm not sure if my veil will look good. I wasn't thrilled with it all at the fitting. I love my necklace with the dress, but I'm feeling a little down that it won't all look good together. I'm second guessing everything. Here is my hair style (which is another reason I'm not sure about the veil)

And the dress with the veil (from behind)

I just don't know. And I can't try it on again until I pick it up for the wedding! AHHHH!


Would you just do maybe a hair flower? Or veil? I have a birdcage, but I'm not in love with it either...

Stupid decisions.

I would say no veil.


You can't really see the hair style which is really pretty, and the veil also seems like too much with your necklace.

I like the birdcage....I think it looks cute on you! And it isn't so much that it takes away from the necklace.

I'm not normally a fan of the birdcage look, but I'm loving it on you.

I'm with Tammy. I'm usually anti-birdcage, but you look GORGEOUS with it! THe other veil just doesn't work with your look or your personality. I vote bird cage :)

I'm partial to birdcages (obviously!  lol), but I think the veil takes away from your gown and gorgeous necklace.  Either a birdcage or a beautiful hair brooch or headband would look beautiful with your ensemble!


Headbands like this, but with more pearls to match your necklace?  Just a suggestion.

I have to go with Mica on this one...I think no veil or birdcage. Your veil seems to be taking away from the dress, hair, makeup. I think you rock that birdcage nicely!


And you look so gorgeous!!! Loving the look of everything!

The other veil doesn't work, so I'd say no veil--maybe a barette or hair flower--or the bird cage.  I think the birdcage with the dress and the necklace will add a bit of the eclectic and elegance.

REALLY like that birdcage on you! ;-)


Your dress and jewelry are so chic, and they make a bold statement. I think the birdcage (or no veil) would suit that look the best. Trust your instincts, and don't hesitate to change things up this late in the game if it makes sense!

I say no veil or a longer veil, the one in the photos is too short for your gown, which is gorgeous on you by the way. The birdcage takes away from your gown in my opinion. I agree you should do a flower or headband that matches your necklace. The necklace and gown work perfectly together.

a birdcage...and look for a swarovski imitation fascinators or a flower..a necklace pearl is enough for you..too much if you wear another of pearls..


i wore a birdcage but i have a problem in the form of it..so i soaked it on water and placed it on something hollow as size of my head..and i let it stay for the whole day..i use the round shape of lampshade, it works.unless you decided to pick that veil..


one more...the birdcage veil is too short..and people would appreciated the beauty of your dress at the back too..any other long veil, you're just gonna hide the beauty of the ribbon there..


goodluck..

I agree with most of the ladies. I would go either no veil or with the birdcage!
