Many brides wonder how to wear a birdcage veil, but the truth is, it’s not that much different than a traditional veil and allows you even more versatility than a traditional long-length veil.
How Is a Birdcage Veil Worn
A birdcage veil can be worn any way you’d like: in the center of your hairstyle, towards the front for a more traditional or classic look, or you can move it to the back of your hairstyle for a glamorous look. You can wear a birdcage veil with short hair, medium-length hair, or long hair and worn up or down.
To stay put in your hair, you can use bobby pins or a bridal comb, which attaches to the birdcage veil and creates a secure fit.
If you desire to wear a birdcage veil with a blusher, you can easily flip it to cover your face and flip it back for the reception. You can wear a birdcage style veil in white or ivory to coordinate with your dress; or, go a bit bold and choose blue, pink, or black. Thanks to Marti & Company, you can get a custom birdcage veil created for your day with any of the customizations above and more, like the adornment of pearls, Swarovski crystals, tiny satin bows, lace, etc.
