The birdcage veil originated in the 1940s when veils were made shorter due to a shortage of fabric during the second world war. With a birdcage veil, wartime brides could add some extra style and elegance to their bridal look, which often consisted of their best formal suit or dress.
Originating in the 1940s, brides may instinctively think that a birdcage veil will only work with post-war inspired wedding dresses. And although they do look fantastic with retro wedding outfits, birdcage veils actually lend themselves to a range of modern and alternative wedding dress shapes and styles.
The short length of a birdcage veil can also help to elongate the appearance of your neck and your silhouette, so take the long clean lines of a luxury minimalist gown into consideration when looking to match the veil with a modern wedding dress style.
Materials: Made with soft Russian netting with a large open weave in a diamond pattern, and enhanced on each side by two hair combs adorned with pearls and crystals, this fresh take on a traditional veil accessorizes any wedding dress beautifully. The birdcage veil also allows the bride to show off every detail of her wedding dress, letting any intricate lace or beading or stunning back detail take center-stage.
