23 Jul The Birdcage Veil and Tea Dress Gown
When brides want a classic look without the stress of a full veil, a perfect choice is the birdcage veil. Lightweight and easy to attach, the attachments place little stress on the hair while still giving full coverage as a veil, and add a contemporary look to a classic fashion style.
Different types of netting add full flexibility of choice to the bride, with the French net adding a softer, lace look and the Russian net appearing bolder, with more defined fabrics used. The high-fashion styles feature embellished details on the netting, and look great with added feather flower fastener.
Birdcage veils have made big news in Hollywood, with celebrities such as Madonna, Drew Barrymore and Reese Witherspoon all admitting to be fans of the style. The trend is said to be a spin-off from the tea-length wedding gown, although we love the veil in its own right because it is unique, fun and it certainly turns heads at any ceremony. The accents on the fasteners remind us of the statement jewelry trend happening at the moment, and with gown fashions becoming more princess-like and romantic, this is a beautiful way to modernize a classic look with style.
We here at The Abbey are seeing quite a bit of both worlds in the brides we have been working with lately. There is a great love of the classic aspects of a ceremony and reception. But with most of the younger brides, adding little personal touches that are a little different from the norm seems to be exact what the bride ordered.
