The wispy & delicate nature of feathers set the tone for a perfectly pure, fresh bridal ensemble. Brides of all tastes, from modern fashionistas to classic connoisseurs, will find that today’s Feather Birdcage Veil is just the thing to top off their big day look.

Needle & thread

Feathers, feather clips, silk flowers, other embellishments

STEP 6.  Add some feather embellishment to the comb of the veil. You can make your own and sew it on, or for an easy and interchangeable option, consider a feather clip like any of our already made feather accents and feather flowers.

Now all you need is a blushing bride! For the bride’s veil we’ve used light airy feathers in ivory or gentle pastel colors, but you could also use vibrant colors and more bold feathers for the bridesmaids
