Birdcage veils for the vintage-inspired and modern bride.

Birdcage veils are a big wedding trend right now; they are flying high with both the modern and the vintage-inspired bride.

First popular in the 1940s, the birdcage veil is the perfect accessory for many brides planning a vintage-style wedding.  Yet they also work for brides who want a less traditional approach.  Not so grand (or expensive) than the traditional longer veil, birdcage veils are usually detachable, enabling the bride to remove the netting after the ceremony and keep a beautiful headpiece in place for the evening.

While I love the flowing elegance of a long veil, I do think that birdcage veils are exquisitely chic and alluring.  Here is an inspiration board containing some of my favourites:
