        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!

                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.

                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.
