I am planning on making my veil, and intend on starting ASAP. I have more than enough inspiration after looking at these beautiful veils. Ladies, you have wonderful taste!
Mrs. Green Tea’s veil is so delicate and lovely. *swoon*
I love this shot! I am definitely going for this type of opacity; I love long veils but do not want the veil to cover up the beautiful lace on the back of my dress, especially because it will be bustled so quickly after the ceremony!
Mrs. Coconut’s veil is absolutely stunning, and I love the beautiful flower in her hair!
I also love her dress and bouquet! (Focus, Miss Taffy! This post is about veils!)
The most recent veil candy around the hive belongs to Mrs. Cherry Pie. Just gorgeous!
Mrs. Daffodil’s veil is so simple and elegant.
Let’s throw some lace into the mix! Mrs. Bluebell’s veil (not to mention her entire look, and the photo location) has me wiping the drool away. Mrs. Bluebell, you look amazing!
The main struggle that I am facing while designing my veil is whether or not to include lace. I love mantilla veils, but if I do incorporate lace, it will be very subtle, as I don’t want to take away from the beautiful lace details on the train. It is my favorite part about my dress, and I am already starting to feel sad that the train will only show for the ceremony. (I just had my first fitting and am having a hard time finding a bustle that I love.)
I will most likely add lace to the hem of the veil, but not around the sides. I am also considering making the length end right before the lace ruffles begin on my train, but am not sure if that would be weird. Is there some kind of veil length etiquette? I will probably also make the veil one layer, to help create a very sheer look.
Did you have a hard time deciding on a veil? What about your veil made it the one you chose?
