Who can resist a pair of veiled eyes? The mystery which comes with the birdcage veil has reminiscences of old and elegant times. If you want to add a vintage feel to your wedding day, this is one delicate detail that will turn heads.
Popular in the 1940s and 1950s with stylish housewives, the trend gains more and more supporters between the 21-century brides. Modern women who get married not to have someone to take care of them, but choose the partner to support and encourage their blooming career, these brides have the confidence to mix old and new with a fabulous outcome.
Made from French or Russian netting (or, sometimes from tulle), the birdcage veil comes under different names: blusher veil, angle veil, bandeau veil, Venetian veil. The difference between them lies in the way they are arranged and in the size of the section of netting.
The French netting is soft, has a lacey appearance and a pointed edge. The Russian netting, on the other hand, has a scalloped edge and it is more firm.
Some come with just bobby pins; others are gathered and pleated to an intricate comb which slides easily into your hair.
Whichever you will choose for your Big Day, you will look classy, stylish and you’ll make your grandmother happy.
