How to Wear a Birdcage Veil

First things first: what is a birdcage veil? A birdcage veil is a wedding veil style that is worn close to one’s face. It is typically made of French netting or tulle attached to a hair comb to accommodate any hairstyle.

Should you wear a birdcage veil throughout your entire day? That’s entirely up to you. Some brides opt to wear a traditional long veil for the ceremony and wear a birdcage veil for the reception. Others wear a birdcage veil for the ceremony and remove the piece for the reception. And, of course, many brides wear the birdcage veil from the walk down the aisle to the last dance. It’s entirely up to you!

How to Wear a Birdcage Veil

A birdcage veil can be worn in a variety of ways, depending on what feels most comfortable to you. If you’re wearing your hair down, simply slide the hair comb to position on the side of your head for an asymmetrical look. Or, slide the comb onto the top of your head for a fuller look.
