What are you going to put in your hair with it? Are you going to wear it alone, or the feathers, or just flowers. The one I have (yes I saved it), had a velvet bow like headband, not puffy bows, but really tight to to the head. with the veil coming down from the headband. Have you decided if you like full or partial face veil? Have you considered some great vintage/antique shops if there are any around you, that is where I picked up mine. Your dress is so lounge singer, vavavavoom!!!! Its beautiful, the veil will look perfect, good luck with your search.

Second, try ebay for a cheap veil, that way you can get one and not regret it too much if you don't like it.

eBay: French Russian Netting BIRDCAGE VEIL White or Ivory! (item 230128387524 end time May-17-07 13:44:25 PDT)

This seller has several different types for like $35.
No exact pics - there isnt a sample in Florida of that gown, but a similar one...i'll have to find it...

In the wedding bells magazine there is a girl wearing a cage veil and I think its gorgeous! Ill see if I can find the picture and Ill post it for you!
yes please do -- the more pics I can find the better... :) I see alot of pics with girls with short hair and I think I am doing my hair half up, half down - or a low side pony

ummm--- hair is still in the decision phase...definitely half up or side pony --- but I know I want to have some poof at the top --- nothing sleek head gripping --- more full and sexy...

I know I'm late, but I just wanted to say sexy dress Toby. I can't wait to see the finished look of the veil and dress combo. It's unique. Love it!

Toby, hi. I found this birdcage while searching for alternate ideas for my daughter, Maggie. I'm sorry, I do not remember which site it came from, but a couple that have been posted on this thread look real familiar.

I've been looking at the same style!  Check out etsy!  There are tons of people who make them, and there are some very pretty ones!  I've been trying to find one that isn't too expensive, but haven't had much luck with it!  Beautiful dress, by the way! :)
