Chic Alternatives to the Traditional Veil

At Affordable Elegance Bridal we are all about wedding veils. But if you are looking for alternatives to the traditional veil, we've got you covered!

We have some elegant alternatives for you.


Birdcage Veils

Birdcage veils are made of French or Russian netting or bridal tulle and come in a variety of styles and colors. They can be worn with or without a decorative comb or pin.

Some of our favorites include:

This veil features the addition of rhinestones in the netting plus a chic feather fascinator. A great accessory for a vintage inspired wedding.
