Definitely wanting a birdcage veil

What do you think?

I might even make my own if I can get the right lace. Does anyone know where i can get high end lace like this (not tulle).

Or if I really want to go retro, there's always this version of the pillbox birdcage veil...Not sure if that's me though.

I'm absolutely open to suggestions if you guys want to post links in the comments to other veils I should consider. I do think I want to stay with this overall style however.

I think this last one is super stylish but I just worry I'd feel like i had a weird little circle on my head...

There are so many wonderful handmade pieces on Etsy, particularly from Batcakes Couture and Artikal. All the images shown here are from these two designers.

By the way, does anyone know why they call them "fascinators"?

I like the first one best, probably because it has a headband and looks like it would actually stay in place and be functional as well. I love the look of these. I think, like a dress, you just need to find somewhere to try them on and see what works best for you. The question is where? There's gotta be a bridal shop somewhere - RK? Macy's? - anyway, let me know if you find somewhere and want someone to go with for a second opinion!
