Flirt with chic style on your big day by wearing a gorgeous French net headpiece. A net or birdcage veil is versatile, trendy, and utterly fabulous. From elegant ceremonies to carefree receptions, we’ll cover exactly how you can enjoy wearing French net on your wedding day!
Blending traditional vintage fashion with modern allure, headpiece 6442 offers the perfect alternative to a long veil. Three soft flowers with sparkling rhinestone centers top off a French net face veil in a stunning statement of bridal style.
How to Wear Me
A French net veil looks beautiful styled in a number of ways. You can wear it angled over your forehead and eyes, style it full over your face, wear it further back on top of your head, or even flip it so the netting drapes backwards over your hair! Try out different looks to discover the one you like best.
Most French net veils come on combs, though some can be clipped into your hair. You can pair plain French net with your favorite headpiece, or find a design that incorporates both!
How to Match Me
French net pairs beautifully with glamorous jewelry. Long earrings look particularly good if you want to highlight a favorite pair; or you can wear studs and focus the attention on a stunning necklace. This type of veil is so minimal that it naturally draws attention to your gown and other accessories.
For oh-so-chic Parisian style, snazz up your ensemble with dramatic chandelier earrings such as EA218 or elegant drops like EA212; to create a look of stunning vintage elegance, wear a red lip with classic jewelry like BC134 or BC131.
If you prefer a more casual bridal outfit, flip the veil back or wear it for a fun reception piece! Because it is so light and may be worn at the court house or on the beach, you can customize French net according to your personal style.
My Perfect Wedding
Go vintage. Feel elegant! Be completely carefree.
A French net veil may be worn to accent a variety of wedding themes. This type of veil is popular for vintage-inspired weddings evoking fashions from the 1920s–1950s, but may also be styled to express trendy, minimalistic beauty.
This veil type gives off a vintage vibe with tea-length or knee-length dresses, yet appears hot-off-the-runway fresh when paired with long, full-skirted gowns. Slender sheath silhouettes or light dresses work perfectly with French net.
One of the best things about French net is that it looks amazing in any season! Be chic in a ball gown for an elegant winter wedding, romantic with floral accessories in the spring, casually beautiful for an outdoor autumn ceremony, or free-spirited at a beach or destination wedding.
Getting married again and want to skip a long veil? This lovely style is perfect for a vow renewal or second wedding.
