I’m wearing a cathedral length veil for my church ceremony, and planning to change into a chic birdcage veil for the reception. My question is thig: can I wear the birdcage veil with long hair that is down, or at least partly down? My hair is about cleavage length. I almost chose to wear a birdcage for the ceremony, but this is the issue that stopped me. I really want to wear my hair down. or at least mostly down. Now I am glad I decided to get a cathedral length because i think it really works for the big church, but I don’t want to give up on the birdcage on, which goes so well with the dress. Opinions please!!

i want a birdcage veil as well, but I am planning on having my hair pulled loosly back. I think maybe if you pull your hair partly back for the reception you will be able to pull of the birdcage look. I’m pretty sure they attach with a clip or broach, so you just need somewhere to clip it in without it looking out of place. any thoughts on pulling it half back with a twist, or one side back with a hair comb?

It depends on what kind of fascinator that’s attached to your birdcage veil. most of them have a small fascinator which your hair will most likely have to be pulled back on one side or it will slip down your hair and fall off. If you have the birdcage veil go across your forehead attached to a headband, you can achieve the look of having your hair down. The best way to do this is if you don’t pull your hair behind your ears when you put the headband on, but you slide the headband from the top of your head and place it down, between your hair so the hair by your ears hides the headband.

I think that depending on the veil, it can look ok. You could also alter your do into a low pony or twist after the ceremony. It would take little to no effort with most styles.
