Thinly Veiled

In May 2011, Outfits, Veil, Wedding Dress on May 19, 2011 at 11:07 pm

Just when you think that you’ve worked out what veil you want (think fingerlength scalloped edge with lace detailing) you fall into the world of birdcage veils.

I’ve always had a softspot for birdcage veils, though I have to admit that that’s mostly because I want hats to come back in a major way. Seriously, I should be able to walk down the street wearing a hat that has a birdcage veil without people thinking I’ve lost my mind.

But since the only place you seem to be able to get away with wearing a veil these day is a wedding* I have to choose between my love of classic and my love of vintage.

Seriously, how can I go past those? Especially when they’re both for sale for around $60-$70 (AUD).**

The problem (still) is that I can’t decide between a tea length gown and a full length gown. One of those bird cage veils would sit beautifully with a tea length gown, but not so well with the Augusta Jones dress that I’ve been looking at.

But how well would theygo with this dress?

Hopefully I find *something* that helps me choose, and soon! Preferably before I lose my mind and buy both!

*I tried wearing a black hat with a birdcage veil to a funeral and got told off for being ‘too pretentious’.

** Ok, I admit they’re for sale somewhere outside of Australia, but I can work around that!
