I’m wearing a birdcage veil as well!

If the veil isn’t laying the way you want it to, you can bobby pin it into place. I recommend shaping and pinning it on the back of your head, so the front will lay nicely and not look too flat.

I bought my veil from Somethingbold.com. Good luck and great choice! 🙂

Keep playing with it.  I got quite frustrated, put it aside a couple times and came back to it.  After a few days, voila, I figured it out.  No rhyme, no reason.

i think they are tricky too!!  my aunt made mine and she said that steaming really did the trick…but i also think a lot of bobby pins and fooling around with it is what makes it work!!

I have been contemplating making my own birdcage veil as well and read a post on here… and can’t seem to find it…grr…but a Bee had recommened using french netting vs. russian netting because the french netting isn’t as stiff so you can play around with it more. Also I did save a recommended site for DIY birdcage veils:

Good Luck, I’d love to see your finished product!
