enjoy the below, and please let me know if you have other questions about how to wear your cage veils!

new cage veil: wide diamond classic birdcage veil

large diamond netting birdcage veil

kerpow! i’m continuing to post items from my new collection this week, and my new wide diamond classic birdcage veil is a new take on my classic cage veil — except this one has deliciously modern wide-diamond netting. a little bit sassier than traditional birdcage veils in russian netting or french veiling, no?

keep checking back into my etsy shop for more veils and fascinators this week — many more still to come!

how to wear your hair with a headband veil

one of my favorite bridal hair resources, the bliss book, has featured my headband birdcage veil as their hair adornment of the week! head on over to the post to check out their suggestion for a gorgeous updo to pair with my headband veil, and check out their book as well for more great inspiration.

i love a piled-high intricate updo with this veil, but it’s such an easy style to wear that it also works great with flowing, long hair worn down or in a half-updo as well. all you have to do is pop it on, adjust it slightly forward or backward to suit your taste, and you’re good to go!
