    You know I wouldn't have EVER considered a bridcage veil. I mean, they look great on everyone I've seen them on but I could never imagine myself with one UNTIL I went in for my final fitting last week and we were trying on the regular veils and none of them were doing anything for me. My best friend just happened to pick up a birdcage veil and we fell in love with it! Its so cute. I like the look with it covering half of my face also. I don't know what it is about it but it just seemed so ME. I just wasn't sure about the hair down with it because everyone kept saying your hair has to be up to pull the birdcage veil off but with a sew in I doubt that's gonna be able to happen with me. Its good to see that I'm not the only one thinking of wearing my hair down with a bridcage veil.

      Yes my date is getting here very fast! It was actually supposed to be on May 14th, but we decided to postpone b/c of the darn swine flu. I have lost a lot of my guests and people still have not re-booked their trip! This has been an emotional roller coaster but we still plan to have fun no matter who it there! That website took me to the buns so thanks Savannah!

      Debra I had my final fitting on yesterday. I had already purchased my veil which i still plan to wear but I tried on a birdcage veil with this fabulous flower/feather piece and it was stunning! I can't wait to wear it!

          Hey Ladies (Savannah thanx for the link lol)
          I just wanted to throw n my .02. I was looking at the cutest birdcage veil that has orange feathers on it. It's so opposite of what I wanted but I love love it so I'm glad to see that you ladies are interested in those types of veils as well.

            Hi Ladies,

            It's been a while... First off, Monique's ponytail looks so fab!!! And Petals you were definitely were working that birdcage, it looked so sophisticated and chic on you :)

            Another option for those considering a sew in for their wedding look is to have the weave sewn in only in the back-middle portion of your head. That way, you have the smooth sleek look in the front and the weave hair gives you that added fullness and/or length where you need it in the back. This works pretty well for ponytails, and I'm sure it would help achieve a look similar to the Nia Long look that the lovely Monique is displaying.

              You are right Gregsbride! I am only planning to get a partial sew-in. That way I will be able to pull my hair away from my face if I choose.

                I just can't make up my mind. My INITIAL plan was to go for long and loose...kinda wild, maybe with even some seed pearls scattered throughout. But then, my dress changed, and now I'm thinking I'll do that for my TTD session since my dress is more the romantic breezy kind for that. My ceremony gown is very elegant, so thats why I'm thinking of a side something or another with the birdcage veil.

                Decisions, decisions.....

                    I initially thought that I would do a birdcage veil, but then I tried on a cathedral length veil w/ my dress and was completely sold... I just think that it will look so pretty blowing in the wind in pics!! But then again, just like you ladies I have a while to go so I may change my mind yet again :)
