I love the look of a birdcage veil.  It is so retro!  I have the same quandry.  All I do know is I want my look timeless.  I do not want to time/date stamp my wedding.  But I heart this veil so much!  I’m shooting for could be 1940…2009? But lost somewhere in the deep south.

My birdcage goes right to my nose, so that it doesn’t have to be lifted during the ceremony.  Good luck finding the one for you!

I ordered two (wedding will be this June) one with the netting shown above, and the second with the same fabric as the more common veils. (around $15 each on ebay) Surprisingly enough I liked the second one much better! Both come to just below the nose so no work is required for the *kiss*!

I went with the Venetian Birdcage style, which is a bit more femme fatale/ninja, but I love how beautoful it is in cream. This isn’t the flower I got for the side, but I am looking for something big and dramamtic to go on the side of the veil. If anyone has any links or ideas, please let me know!

I’m going for a birdcage veil.   I was anti-veil until I discovered the birdcage… I knew it was the one for me!  I love the idea of having a flower with it.. it looks so pretty!

The last one you posted is particularly pretty!

Lovefoolme- that’s an awesome veil!

I love the birdcage as well but I just couldn’t picture wearing it at the wedding and my groom would have been like what the hell is on your face! 🙂 hehe

That being sad I decided to do some bridal portrait pics with a birdcage veil and then do a tradional veil for the ceremony!

Yesterday my mom went with me to my first dress fitting. From behind me I heard her say, "Oh, that’s such a cute veil. That girl has a little short one. Have you seen those?"

 Taye: "Yeah, Mom, it’s a birdcage veil."

Mom (after long pause): "Are you sure it’s not called a bird’s nest veil?"

I’m not wearing a veil, but if I thought my dress would go with a birdcage, I would be uber tempted.

 I was a no veil bride , but fell in love with the birdcage look. I wore mine all night , it came just to the nose so no need to pull back for the kiss or eating. I’ve seen some looks with hair half down , but I ended up with an updo because i was worried about wind. you can make one yourself , i bought my netting on ebay. Taye , my aunt said the same thing lol!!

I’m going to a veil making class in May and I’m going to make my own birdcage veil.  Maybe I’m getting really carried away with the DIY, but for $17.50 + the price of the material itself, I’ll have a veil!

i have the same logistical worries…i have a birdcage veil and will undoubtedly not decide whether im def wearing it until i get married on my wedding day. considering the way it has to be pinned to your head to acheive that look, you cant pull it back for the kiss, which bugs me….youre essentially wearing a mask the entire time! on the other hand, theyre gorg.
