I love your dress!! I had the same reservations after I purchased my dress...I kept telling my mom it just feels too fancy for a DW. But my sister said It is my day and if i picked a simple dress just because i was worried id be overdressed it would be such a mistake! Brides, no matter where they are getting married, should feel beautiful and you look gorgeous in your dress!! 

Oh and i vote long veil!!

Unfortunately I don't have a picture of me in it yet, but this is the dress I picked. NOTHING like what I wanted, walked right past it in the salon! I always envisioned something lacy, but felt great in this one. It looks a lot better on me than on the model (I believe, not to sound vain!) because she's so skinny. But I worry, I didn't want to get a dress that looked sort of like a nightgown? If you know what I mean?

LOVE THE LONG VEIL!!  I totally vote for the long veil.  I think the bird cage is beautiful, but I don't think it goes as well with your dress as the long veil.  Plus the long veil just looks so wedding-ish and romantic (and even beachish)!  LOVE IT!

I agree, my vote is for the long veil.

Your dress is amazing! You look very beautiful! Don't confine yourself to what others might think is appropriate for a beach wedding! Whatever you love and want is appropriate for your beach wedding!

 

Love the bottom of your dress and agree with what Peach said - I prefer the look of the birdcage, especially if you're going to take it off for the reception.

EmilyT, my 1st instinct/gut reaction is the long veil!  Classic & beautiful!  Regardless, both look fabulous!

Emily, that dress looks fantastic on you and it'll look amazing on the beach!!!  No worries at all. 

 

Personally, I think the bird cage veil is a better option.  The long veil is gorgeous, but it gets lost in the details of the dress.

I honestly love the look of the dressier/more formal wedding gown for DWs; I think they make for a nice contrast and really make the bride 'pop' against the backdrop of the laction. This dress looks awesome on you and  I also vote for a traditional veil but would opt for a fingertip length instead.
