I’ve never been a bird person. I’ve never had a pet bird or really had a need for a real bird cage. Well, until now. As I look for wedding decor with a vintage twist, images of bird cages keep popping up. At first, I was not impressed and moved on to the next image. However, now I just can’t get enough of them! There is something so deliciously vintage and charming about bird cages as wedding decor. They are statement pieces without being too flashy or over the top. Below are my favorite uses of the bird cages that I’ve seen in real weddings.
