Hand-Sewn Ivory Merry Widow Birdcage Veil

StyleWith ivory clip

Free Worldwide shipping


This striking ivory Merry Widow birdcage veil is hand-tailored and sewn from quality veiling and is available with a clever clip option to help you easily position your veil.

I use milliners English Merry Widow veiling which has a similar style to the fine French Netting I use for my birdcage veils but has a wider open weave that makes more of a statement than its more delicate counterpart. Merry Widow veiling is a little stiffer than French Netting, giving the veil a more structured shape than my Esme design. 

You can order this piece with or without a tiny ivory clip to help you easily position your veil - perfect for use with a headband, crown, tiara, or to wear the veil on its own. The final video in this carousel shows the tiny clip I use - and how to use it.

The silver Blanca crystal and pearl comb you see here is available to buy separately.

If you plan to wear a bridal hair comb, I recommend choosing the veil option without a clip as the comb will hold the veil in place and a clip could stop the teeth of your comb sitting fully in your hair.

A birdcage veil is supremely versatile - the perfect finishing touch for a cool modern bride or a retro or vintage-inspired look. It's a lovely and unusual way to wear a wedding veil and is the perfect addition to a side headband or off-centre bridal hair comb, headband, crown or pin. 

Clip it in off centre to wear with a comb or side tiara headband - or place it in the centre of your head to wear it with a padded headband or crown.

The Merry Widow birdcage veil measures approximately 8 inches from the clip to the area that sits over the nose and comes with kirby grips in case you need extra help to pin the piece into place.
