So I had always wanted to have a birdcage veil so I bought one (didnt try any other type on) but I find it annoys me!! I keep trying it on and have tried pinning it in different ways but I can just 'feel' it there on my face all the time! Im pretty gutted as I absolutley love bridcage veils but I really dont want the annoyance of it on my big day. So what veils do you think would go with my dress and hair idea? I was thinking maybe an elbow length and wearing it positioned above the bun? Would a veil at the back of my hair look odd because it is a side do?? Opinions welcomed and appreciated
Also have you had this problem with birdcage veils, any advice on how to wear it to minimise annoyance??
Also because I never tried any veils on is there anything you should consider when buying a veil? Like your height and weight etc, may sound a stupid question but all the bridal stores around me are terrible so I will be buying online and obvs have no chance to try on
This is my hair inspiration
My dress (except mine is ivory)
I think are really simple, really sheer cathedral length veil like this
I can totally see why you were going for the birdcage veil, it would suit that dress perfectly! Maybe try some variations on the birdcage before you give up completely? I saw another bee with a tulle version recently that looked lovely and might feel different?
Good luck, and your dress is stunning!
I wanted a birdcage veil sooooo bad, but it didn't work with my dress, so I feel your pain!
I think an elbow-length veil would be beautiful, or you could scrap the veil and just so an incredible headpiece. With that dress, you could do a variety of different headpieces. Try Etsy!
@miss.alice.m: Thank you so much! I like it too :) I went straight upstairs and tried the birdcage on again after writing the post - I want it to work so much as I agree that it would work well with the whole look - alas I ended up throwing it down in temper with a red face and dishevelled hair lol. I think untill I see another veil I REALLY like I am going to persevere and see if I can find a way to wear it comfortabley
@brandy-lynn: Did you try the birdcage veils on? Did you find them 'annoying' on your face?
@fayrhiannon: Def a sheer One but I think your lucky enough to do a multitude of lengths!!!
I am actually wearing a bird cage, I am also having the same thoughts about it on my face. I really really really want to wear it with my vintage inspired dress!
I have heard that the more you "play" with them the more flexiable and soft the netting gets. Have you tried shaping it? Right now I have mine stuffed with a zillion wadded up tissue paper balls to help shape it into the shape I want with.
I would also suggest etsy! Maybe you could do a short tulle blusher birdcage instead of the netting. Those are a little softer and might not be as uncomfortable on your face.
