Happy Monday everyone! I’m in a strangely, eerily good mood for a Monday and I hope the rest of you are having a great start of the week as well [if not great, at least not angry/homicidal or sad]. To kick off another wildly wonderful wedding week, I’m going to share my obsession with birdcage veils. To me, having a veil was never an option, it was always something I knew I would have. Although I am hardly a traditional girl or a traditional bride, a long veil is one tradition that I just could not give up. However, as of late, I’ve become unhealthily obsessed with birdcage veils. I love the length, the sexy look and the flowers, pins and accessories that are often attached to them. Because I can’t make up my mind and want one of EVERYTHING, I’m going to have both a birdcage veil and a long veil at my wedding! One for the ceremony and one for the reception. Who said you can’t have it all? Since my other veil is already ordered, I’m now on the lookout for a very vintage, very classic and very “claire” birdcage veil. Which one of the below is your favorite?

I’m really digging this black birdcage veil trend. I think the contrasting colors are so incredibly remarkable. Especially in this photo! Photo courtesy of Rock Star Photography Blog
