The Birdcage Veil
Birdcage Veils are usually made of netting; and only cover a portion of the bride’s face. A Birdcage Veil is perfect for a vintage themed wedding, or a short wedding dress.
A Blusher is a short, thin fabric that covers the bride’s face as she is walking down the aisle, and is paired with a longer veil. The person who walks the bride down the aisle pulls back the Blusher to reveal the bride’s face. The Blusher is perfect for a traditional ceremony.
The Fly-Away Away Veil adds a bigger statement and more volume than a Birdcage Veil. They Fly-Away Veil falls at or right below the shoulders. This veil is another perfect option for a vintage bride or a short wedding dress.
This veil is a mid-length veil, and falls right around the bride’s fingertip. The Fingertip Veil is elegant and classic. This veil is perfect for the bride that wants a “wow” factor—but wants to keep a classic look. Who doesn’t remember Kate Middleton’s veil, right? I mean, it’s just gorgeous!
