Hi, ladies! Happy Friday!
I’ve decided to make my own veil. I’m starting early because I have a feeling this will be a HUGE undertaking for me. I’m trying to do it really well because I want to be able to pass it onto a daughter one day. I’m having a terrible time choosing my lace though! I’ve attached a picture of my ensemble thus far: dress, shoes and bouquet. Which lace do you think is best for my veil? and why?
The ensemble thus far:
My inspiration picture:
I don’t necessarily want the lace to be that wide, but I do want it to go all the way around. and it looks like this veil is gathered at the top. I’m going for a more smooth drop style … think Kate Middleton’s veil.
The lace options!:
Dolphins: (my dad was on submarines, so it would be a nice gesture to him)
40MM width (approx 1.5 inches) $25 total
50MM (Approx 2 inches) $20 total
60 MM (approx 2.5 inches) $30 total
60MM (approx 2.5 inches wide) $27 total
80MM Wide (approx 3inches) $25

Thanks everyone for your comments and choices! I’m not buying the lace until Monday, so I’ll see how the poll ends up later. So far, the dolphins seem to be pulling ahead though! Daddy would be proud. 🙂

I like both dolphins and roses but voted dolphins since it has a special meaning!

Thanks for all your responses everyone! I decided to order both the dolphin and gates. I’ll put the gates all around (since it’s symbolic of the Charleston Gates and especially the gates outside the church where we’re getting married) and then I’ll also put the dolphins (without the flowers) on the front to symbolize my dad and him walking me down the aisle.
Can’t wait to get everything in the mail and start sewing! Wish me luck, it’s a big project for me. My veil is going to be huge. I see some Downton Abbey episodes in my future complete with a glass of wine and a needle and thread. 🙂
