Birdcage veils on the silver screen

Birdcage veils have made their comeback in the past three years thanks to some featured appearances on the silver screen.

Reece Witherspoon won our hearts in the movie Sweet Home Alabama.

The Fantastic Four, starring Jessica Alba featured a birdcage veil in her on screen wedding ceremony. Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley, who tied the knot way back in December 23, 2008. Its been a few months since her wedding, but with vintage fashion, a few months is nothing! Check out her dress and sweet birdcage veil below. Notice the vintage teardrop earrings too.

katherine pulled back her birdcage veil a bit for the reception. A very good idea! All CastleBride Couture birdcage veils are mounted on a comb, so they are easily repositioned in the hair. This makes moving your veil for the reception a cinch.
Head on over to Grey's Anatomy insider for more pics about Katherine and Josh's wedding

Pictures from Justine Ungaro's wedding

For a slideshow of all the fabulous pictures taken of this wedding by Greg Gibson, click HERE

The lovely Justine Ungaro, of The Unbride just posted some really fantastic photos up on her blog.
They have been a while coming, but totally worth the wait. Thanks to photographer Greg Gibson (recently voted Washington D.C.'s best wedding photojournalist photographer) we have some really incredible shots of Justine in her CastleBride Marilyn birdcage veil. I don't think I've seen the modern birdcage ever captured so well. I'll share some images here with you, but do check out The Unbride for a slideshow and Greg's blog for images. Justine wanted to do something fun for her bridesmaids, so we made tiny birdcage veil hats for her attendants. Maids of honor got a little extra bling on theirs.
