Bows are a bridal classic that are having a huge renaissance, with oversized styles adorning dresses, shoes and of course, wedding hair accessories.

Birdcage veils

Lovers of nostalgia and vintage style should consider adding a fabulous birdcage veil to complete your bridal look. Originating in the 1940s, the birdcage veil came to be when veils were made shorter due to a shortage of fabric during World War II. With a birdcage veil, wartime brides could add an elegant detail to their bridal look, which often consisted of their best formal suit or dress.
