I love bird cage pieces! I’m sure you’ve guessed by now but I love the vintage style and these pieces have definitely got some vintage-ness about them! ☺

There’s also something so sexy about these pieces, they’re stunning and super glam! This trend started in the 1940’s and 1950’s and the birdcage was attached to hats and hair discs and was such a glamorous look. Today it can be worn with almost anything and everything, from the dramatic to the more simple look.

So which birdcage veil is for you…

It all depends on your hairstyle and your style/preference and how much coverage you want.

Blusher veil, angle veil, venetian veil, birdcage veil and bandeau veil. There are some slight differences between them which is maily down to how they’re cut and constructed.

Hello! I’m Megan from ANAQA headpieces and welcome to my first blog piece on headpieces on Lace in the desert!

A bride’s headpiece makes such a difference, I think it finishes the look! There are so many types to choose from, size, detail, style the list goes on.

I love these ‘Juliet Cap Veils’ at the moment I just think they are so beautiful! Very vintage which I just love! But they do come in different styles if you’re not the vintage type. For example the images below show boho, simple, effortlessly chic and a classic style all so beautiful.

If there is one thing I adore it’s when unique talent comes together and this collaboration of Loblee Photography with Danani Handmade is exactly what I am talking about.

Beautiful photography meets intricately designed veil and voilà; it really can be that simple. There may be fewer elements to this shoot but that doesn’t make it any less inspiring. It’s the detail, the aesthetics and ultimately the simplicity that makes this mini shoot  so heavenly.

The best news is that  Danani ship their veils and other bridal headpieces to the UAE so if you dream of a juliet cap veil then have no fear ~ it is completely obtainable.
