Any fashion forward bride, with an eye for alternative-chic style, will agree that the Vintage Bird Cage Veil is making a huge comeback this year and is becoming a popular alternative choice to your more traditional bridal veil.

From the images below you can see why so many brides are choosing them – they’re simply beautiful and full of character, especially the bird cage veils below from the fabulous Batcakes Couture from Etsy, who’s extensive range makes me want to wear them everyday! And why not!?

Oozing hollywood glamour, sophistication and elegance, the fabulous bird cage veil is incredibly versatile and can be worn and adapted to suit your personal style and taste. You can have the simple net veil covering your entire face, positioned just below the eyes or covering your head completely – it’s entirely down to what suits you best.

Depending on your individual style you can pair the net veil with a bohemian jeweled headpiece (for a boho wedding); hair flower clip (for a whimsical natural feel); a simple vintage hair clip (for a vintage wedding); 1920’s classic cocktail hat with a pearl and diamante clip (for a city-chic wedding); or a feather fascinator hair piece (for the glamour puss amongst us!).

You can even dye the netting to any colour you want! Ivory, classic white, black, red, pink, yellow – whatever takes your fancy!

For the DIY queens amongst us you could even buy a simple bird cage veil and then glamp it up with accessories making it as bold or understated as you like. You could simply attach small single pearls to the netting, or tiny crystal details just where the netting meets the face, to create an effortless elegant look.

However you wear them, bird cage veils will certainly add a bit of glamour to your day.
