So, I'm trying to figure out my headpiece/veil. I was originally planning on a birdcage, since I'm not a big fan of veils. I've been active in the LGBTQ/Feminist community pretty much my whole life, and I'm uncomfortable with longer veils (for myself, not
anyone else) because of the historical "hiding the bride" bit.
Then I went and got the (now discontinued) dress below, in ivory. With a huge petticoat. Which I absolutely 1000% love, but I know it's a little more princess-y than I originally pictured.
Is a birdcage a bit silly for a big ballgown like this? Should I skip the veil altogether? Go with something completely different?
Am I totally overthinking this?
(For the record, my FI would rather me have a veil, but his feelings on the issue are not strong at all.)
