I didn’t wear one for my wedding, but wished I had for at least part like maybe the reception. On the other hand I wonder if it’s just a trend that people will regret down the road. How many of you are wearing a birdcage veil and do you think down the road it will be considered classic of embarassingly trendy?

Classic! So 1940’s…. I am wearing one because we are having a vintage wedding!

I have both a "traditional" veil and a birdcage veil and I’m still trying to decide when to wear which veil, but I’m in love with them both. I always look at brides from the 40s and 50s and think they look classically elegant, so hopefully I’ll feel the same way when I look at my own wedding pictures 40 years from now too. There’s no telling what our future kids will think of our fashion sense though. Things do seem to have recurring trends. Birdcage veils seem to be for the bridal world what aviator glasses, peasant tops and colored jeans are for the fashion world.

I’m definitely going for birdcage or nothing for the ceremony, and then it will be coming off anyway after the ceremony is over. I want to be able to see the rest of the night…

im totally smitten with the idea of doing a birdcage veil! they are super fun and i was worried about feeling overwhelmed by a big veil (im pretty short) now just trying to find the right one…and my mom is making a flower from my extra dress fabric for the hair fascinator!

i think they are so classic and stylish!
im wearing a birdcage veil with a feather fascinator for the ceremony, and will probably take off the veil and just wear the fascinator for the reception.
