    Haha I'm totally for #2 too!! It's softer looking and a nice balanced shape, the netting & feather looks higher quality and my last reason: and this is totally personal preference, I personally don't like the big feather (which is what everyone else liked) it's very 40's Vegas-esque to me! which might work too! lol
    But they both are beautiful and I'm sure whichever you pick you will look stunning!

      I dont have a veil picked out yet but I love yours! I like #2 because it goes over your eyes more :)

        Ooooh, Lara -- I LOVE birdcage veil #2!! It's really chic and sophisticated looking, and I think it will look beautiful on you!

        And since no one else has posted their veils yet, I thought I'd jump in an post both of mine! (I had bought one dress & veil, which I will now wear for our AHR, and then had a change of heart and got a different gown & veil for the ceremony) so here are pictures of both!

        I know these photos are up on the forum elsewhere already, but here they are again for veil-posting purposes!

        Here is my ceremony gown (Sottero & Midgley RSM1038 ) and the single-tier cathedral veil with no embellishments:

        And here is the original gown I bought at David's Bridal (style T8792) with matching 2-tier, fingertip length, satin ribbon-edge veil that I'll be wearing for my AHR:

        I think anyone who is undecided as to whether or not to wear a veil, just consider this -- it is the only time in your life when you can wear one and not look silly, so I say go for it!!!

        In my opinion, nothing says "Here comes the BRIDE!" more that a beautiful girl, in a gorgeous gown, finished with a fabulous veil....

          I love them both! It sounds like we're going for the same thing. I also have an asymmetrical short bob, and i've ordered my birdcage veil from Velvetowl on Etsy.com (the maker of the first piece you have there).

          Mine has been custom made, and she's been great to work with. Here's a link to what it looks like, without the veil. The veil is detachable and is a small one that will brush just over one eye. Mine's in the mail - I can't wait to receive it!!

          I love the birdcage for short hair lengths. It's so glam!

              I actually have the flower from the second one (got it from etsy.com) and its really delicate and gorgeous. I have to agree though the first one looks really fashion forward and amazing =) hth.

                  Whoah Christie - your dress and veil are beautiful, I hadn't seen the new one and wow is it gorgeous, with that veil it looks almost ethereal - lovely! I am definitely going to get a veil, I think they really finish off the look - I just felt like a real bride once I put it on. Not sure where I am going to get one from, but the prices in the bridal stores are pretty unreal for a simple piece of tulle!
                  Diane, that flower is really beautiful the veil is going to look awesome with it!

                  Anyone have suggestions of sellers with a good selection/quality?

                    HUGS to you, Stephanie!!!

                    Thank you for your sweet words about my new gown/veil ensemble...I really liked my first one, but just didn't get that "I'm a bride" feeling we all crave until I found my new gown! The pic is from when I went to try on the sample, and my actual gown came in after only one month (they said it could take up to 4 long months!), so I am excited to go and try it on in my size on Oct. 17 -- next weekend with my Mom and FMIL!

                    And, I know what you mean about veils costing a fortune for the itty-bitty amount of material they are made of, too! I think the one I got recently from the bridal salon (the single tier cathedral with no embellishments) was still $90, and the ribbon-edge fingertip from David's was an outrageous $130! So, in hopes that you might find something that you love that doesn't break the bank, here are links to 2 different stores online that I thought had really decent pricing (starting around $30 or so) for a wide variety of veils styles, and lengths. The only thing I can't speak to is the quality, but atleast it might be worth checking out:

                    And of course for those interested in a whole slew of hair flowers, here's the link to Etsy, if it hasn't been added on here yet:

                    HAPPY SHOPPING, girls!
