Once reserved for the informal wedding, short veils are not only chic for the most casual civil ceremony, we've been seeing them at many ultra-formal weddings lately. This is partly because poufs and cages can be elegant and easy to wear all at once--no lugging around that excess tulle come reception time. Also when brides first started sporting them a couple years back, they were a new and different statement away from the traditional veil.. Believe me, I had a ball designing these small confections of net and tulle and they're some of my all time favs . . .
Header photo: The bubble cage of Russian netting, still popular this year with the more modernistic bride wanting to add some edge to her look. Directly above: The floral cage, a favorite of vintage brides everywhere.
I'd call the petal veil above a cage as long as the blusher is pulled over the face. Ivory tulle with florals dappled front and back . . .
