Cap Style Veils

I'm seeing more and more of the 1930's cap style veil out there. Not sure what I'm talking about? Here's an example of "the look" from that era.

My girl Veronica over at My Hands Made It wore a lovely vintage veil for her cool vintage wedding. *Sniff! Sniff* Is that an Unfake Wedding I smell? Perhapsssssssssssssssssss..... But Veronica's style is more structured and is an actual CAP.

 

Then there are the styles like this that are simply wrapped around the head in some way. I love these. They feel so very Jane Austen to me for some reason (yes, I know that's an 18th century era and not 1920-30's. It just feels that way.)

And what about THESE gorgeous things from my current fave, Rosa Clara? So freakin' swoon-worthy.

So what do you guys think? Yay or nay. I say yay. However, there are some logistics to think about. Will you wear your veil all day/night? If the answer to that question is no, then what about the hair underneath? Will you have time to eff with it between ceremony and reception? Do you want to? The only reason I wore a veil at all was because I really wanted to wear the lace from my mother's mantilla. The mantilla itself wasn't doable because it was so old, but I  DIY'd my veil just to wear that lace! Not only did my mom wear the mantilla, but I believe both of her sisters did as well. So my veil, while not my particular favorite style of veil, was extremely sentimental and that won out over everything stylish. My point being is that I knew that sucker was coming off right after the ceremony and I wanted hair that I didn't have to eff with.

So, just keep all the logistics in mind when you decide what kind of hair toy and/or head accessory to commit to. So what do you think of this style ladies? What are your hair toy and/or noggin accessories are you planning on? Do tell.
