Angle Birdcage Veil - Stylish & Fun to Wear

Angle birdcage veils add a lovely sense of drama and style while drawing attention right to your eyes.   

An angle birdcage veil can be worn as a wedding veil, bridesmaids veil, or just as a decorative headpiece for a night out on the town or special occasion!  Pair your angled birdcage veil with a hair flower clip or feather fascinator hair piece for added personal style.  Birdcage veils are fun to wear and go with so many different styles of dresses and gowns. The resulting look is truly elegant and stunning.

Ellen Marie Angle Veil

We can make your birdcage veil so it is custom fitted to angle over either eye.  Your veil can be cut and styled as a mini birdcage veil or a larger veil that is gathered on one side of your head.  Just contact us and we will work with you to get the exact angle veil style you have in mind.

Angle Veil - Above the Eyes Forehead Veil Flapper Veil

The angle veil shown above can be customized in any length, from a super short flapper style that just covers the forehead, to a longer short angle veil that covers one eye.  You can order this veil so it covers either the left or the right eye.  This veil can be attached to a mini snap comb, or small plastic comb which can be easily concealed and worn with a feather or flower hair clip.  This veil is available in ivory, white, black, or colored birdcage veiling, and it can also be made in sheer bridal tulle.  If you don't see the veil you are looking for, just contact us with your request: custom designs are our specialty!

As shown above, angle veils can be made so they are attached to a feather or flower headpiece, and they can also be made as detachable veils so you can wear the hair clip alone without the veil during your reception.  A little swatch of veiling makes a nice accent to most of our feather fascinator designs. We offer a large selection of flower clips and fascinators in our on-line store, or can create an affordable couture one of a kind design made to match your bridal gown and style inspiration.  Contact us with your requests.

Below - Angle Headband Veil  with Flowers and Feathers

Bridal Headband Angle Veil Feather Flower Headpiece

This popular style is a bridal veil headband with an angle veil that can be made on either the left side or right side.  It can also be made with a detachable veil, or you can flip the headpiece around in reverse to wear the netting on the back side of your head during your reception.  This style works great with short hair, since the headband just slides over your head and doesn't need to hold in your hair.

Bridal Hair Flower with Brooch and Angle Birdcage Veil

This detachable angled veil features a handmade silk hair flower with bridal brooch and accent feathers. This angle veil with crystals has a delicate sparkle from the tiny Swarovski crystals that are individually hand applied to the netting.  We can handcraft your bridal headpiece to match your exact design specifications, with any accent from vintage brooches, to pearl bead clusters.

Angle Birdcage Veils also make a great option for your bridemaids or to be worn at special occasions like parties, vow renewal ceremonies, or any time you want to wear a nice accent.  Below is a popular black angle veil set with feather hair flower.

Can I wear an angle birdcage veil?

Angle birdcage veils look just fabulous with vintage wedding gowns, retro looks, and of course informal wedding gowns.  They are the perfect birdcage veil selection when you don't want a big overpowering veil.  While vintage inspired, they offer perfectly modern style.

The right angle birdcage veil for you

Cage veils can be made of several different netting choices such as: Russian net (also referred to as Russian veiling), French net (also referred to as French veiling) which is softer in texture than Russian netting, vintage silk veiling, fishnet, tulle, or illusion veiling materials.  Most angle birdcage veils feature a classic diamond-shaped netting (Russian or French net), sometimes employing accents such as chenille dots or crystal accents.  Veiling is available in all colors though common colors are classic white, ivory, and black. Custom cage veil makers will normally offer color choices and will customize to meet your specific needs.  The angle veil can be just a triangle made from a swatch of veiling, or it can be a small birdcage veil gathered into a cap shape to go around your head, or even a larger angle veil can be made to cover your head but still be worn offset on one side.


How to Wear an Angle Birdcage Veil

You may wear your angle birdcage veil on either side of the face.  The level of "angle" is up to you because there are no hard and fast rules for wearing birdcage veils.  Tilt it just a little, or a lot, depending on what looks best to you.  If you are having your veil made, decide which side you want the veil on, then you can ask your designer to design a fascinator (like the one above featuring orchids and feathers from to be situated in a certain direction.

Angle Birdcage Veil Hairstyles

Angle birdcage veil hairstyles will need to be considered, because the veil will be attached on one side of your head with a comb or clip.  Look at wedding blogs for some ideas on birdcage veil hairstyles.  Also do a search for "vintage wedding" on google and you are sure to come up with some inspiration from brides wearing these fun veils.

A low bun, Gibson roll, or even wearing your hair loose can be flattering hair styles worn with birdcage veils.  If you plan to do your hair in an up-do, just make sure it doesn't interfere with placement of your veil.  If the bun, braid, or other design is too high and tight, it might not work with your cage veil.  

Angle birdcage veils are fabulous, flirty, and fun.  Enjoy this return of a vintage classic, and enjoy feeling thoroughly modern and stylish.  

We can attach your angle bird cage veil to a hair clip, comb, headband, or fascinator.  Even a bridal hat with veil can be designed.  We specialize in affordable couture designs, so just contact us with your request!
