    Totally understand why you’re upset, but I honestly, really think it’ll be okay.  No one will notice 🙂

    This is just the trim you’re talking about? Even if it was the whole veil, still think you’re fine. Think of it this way: if it was your “borrowed” and white, would you still wear it? (guessing yes.) Five bucks say no one else will notice!

    One week to go-you must be psyched!! Don’t forget your yoga classes next week! 🙂

    Do you have a pic we could see to judge the difference?

    I saw another bride with that problem (her dress was ivory and her tulle veil was whiiiiite) right before my wedding and started worrying about that problem myself.

    I would drop the veil you have and run around town like a mad woman trying to find a matching colour veil you could somehow buy off the rack (DB?) but that’s just me.

    Oh boy, I’m sorry! I had a similiar mishap with my veil like 2 weeks before my wedding but mine was that it totally didn’t go with my dress and I had to order a new one and pray, but it all worked out, I’m sure yours will too.

    However, depending on how much you’re going to be annoyed with it and want to take a chance, isn’t there a way to “dye” it with tea leaves or coffee, or even with an ivory dye?

    I know this won’t help with a veil but I am OCD so this is just me…that would bug me to no end. I was adding some embellishments to my dress back to change it to a corset back and the color was SO NOT IVORY and no way was I going to use them. So I soaked them in bleach for 15 minutes. Voila. I agree with the PP who said try to dye it.

    that has happened to me also and the girls at the bridal shop suggested that I dye it.  I think I am going to do that and if it doesnt come out right then I will buy another one.

    It seems like you may damage the veil by dying it. Why not returning it to the etsy seller if you will take refunds. Send her a pic of how obviously its not white! And go out to near by bridal shops and find a veil. Bring your dress to make sure it matches. You want to be not stressed on your wedding day! And feel comfortable. Veils are one thing that are easy to find. Good luck.
