THE FRUGAL FIANCÉE: Veiled Inspiration

Welcome blog readers to a new feature by me, the Frugal Fiancée!

I have spent a lot of time scouring the internet for fashionable wedding ideas that won't bust my own wedding budget, and so each week I will post about something that's a wedding fashion deal to share the fruits of my internet searching with you all. This week: the caged veil.

Shortly after becoming engaged, my married friends unloaded their bridal magazines on me and I was taken by this new trend of birdcage or caged veils. I think they are classic, but fun, and add a new "fashion-forward" dimension to the old lace veil. You can find these at any bridal shop and pay $500 to $1000...or you could buy one from TessaKim at Etsy for $26. The veil pictured above is one of my favorites and comes in several different colors.

Here's a tip for the wedding day: during the ceremony, wear the veil as shown in the picture and before the reception, take it out, turn that clip around, and wear the veil with the lace facing the back to have some cute flair in your bridal hair.

Made By: TessaKim. Visit her Etsy store here.
