Vintage Veils

I'm a huge fan of the "birdcage" veil that is making a very strong comeback in bridal style these days. Also referred to as a demi or vintage veil, this demure accessory adds a huge statement to your overall bridal look. I particularly like how fashionable it is without any fuss. As if you are effortlessly classy and confident. You'll find them in three popular lengths of cap (to the forehead), eye-length, and blusher (to the cheekbones). The particulars of fabric are endless, but most often constructed of French net which lends itself to both delicacy and structure.

Birdcage veils are wonderfully versatile. Their simplicity make it a great option for outdoor weddings, especially where there may be wind involved and you hate to have 2 yards of tulle flying around your face while saying "i do". Yet it's sophisticated elegance translate it to a great option for the most formal of affairs. For a fashionista, embellish with feathers, or tie in a little bling with dots of crystals or a dazzling Swarvorski broach.

I'm getting married this summer and I'm wearing a tulle birdcage veil, like the second photo. Check out Etsy for great deals...that's where I'm buying mine!
