Not so long ago, I showed you a beautiful Etsy treasury about birdcage veils.
I’d never really thought about them before until my lovely friend Susie emailed me about them. Now, I’m a bit hooked. Elegant, vintage, super sweet, and easy to make yourself, should the mood take you, they’re one of the more versatile and re-wearable veils around.
Popularised during the post-war years of the 1940s, these little veils hint at an age of austerity where everything was pared back, respectfully. The modern bride can reference this bygone era with one of these veils accompanying either a modern gown or an all-out vintage style frock. Really, really adaptable is this style.
