How to make a birdcage veil is fairly easy when you know how! But then again most things are!
A birdcage veil is a hot trend for your wedding veil, it brings vintage glamour and is much easier to wear through your wedding day than a classic wedding veil. But if you want to buy one it will cost you in the region of $40 to $70, you could even get one for $700 - it does have silver and crystal. The good thing about making your own is that it will cost you in the region of $20 depending on the accessories you buy for it!
The netting that you need is called russian netting, you can buy different widths depending on the length you want for your veil. For a veil that falls just below your nose you will need approximately 9" width and a length of 20", for a veil that goes to your chin you will need a width of 18". These measurements will need to be checked against your own face as we are all different!
You will also need 2 haircombs, just like the ones below.
This style of veil works with both long hair in a bun at the back or with short hair.
