An aura of glamorous mystique is instantly evoked by the bride who dons a birdcage veil. The veil can be designed to dip over one eye or to fall just beneath the nose or chin. This veiling looks most graceful when it floats just in front of the face and arcs slightly inward at the hem. Achieving this requires planning as to the placement of the comb in the hairstyle, careful measurement of the veil length, and deft manipulation of the veil’s fullness. The bottom edge of a birdcage veil should be an unbroken line.
A birdcage veil looks lovely when combined with other embellishments such as silk flowers, lace, or rhinestone trim because they provide an attractive focal point where the veiling is sewn to the comb or headband. At Willow Bridal, Russian veiling (also known as French veiling) is available in white, ivory, and blush. Additional accents, such as rhinestones, pearls, chenille dots, or crystals are further options.
