@Lisandrag16:  That is a stunning veil. Jasmines does great work; however, with any replica they aren’t going to be able to get it identical. Have you reached out to any vendors on ETSY?

I can almost promise the quality of the beading will be nothing like you expect, and will look drastically “cheaper” but if you think you will still love a lower quality model I’d say go for it.

my mom and I hand beaded the veil each and every bead steps were, graph the pattern I liked to scale, used fish line and threaded beads onto it, glued the stips of beads on, and then in order to secrure the beads (as glue isn’t enough) we sewed the string of beads on for enforecement. so here’s what an “ametuer” looks like:

and there you have it notice it looks a little “wrinkeled” I don’t know why… but I was proud of it despite that hiccup. It cost us $50 in material and $1000 in stress, frustrations, and time! LOL

@Rachel631:  hi ladies!

 

I am pretty confused about veils and lenghts and styles…. I would like to ask your opinion re what sort of veil would go with this dress:

 

I thought maybe a birdcage, or a shoulder lenght. My hair is a curly graduated bob which I want to leave it flowing for my wedding day. I am concerned that a short veil will make my head look big lol 

 

Opinions appreciated 😉

@Luckybirthdaybride1983:  If it was me, I would probably go for a waltz or an ankle length veil. Because the dress doesn’t have a train, you probably don’t want a veil trailing behind you, so you won’t want a really long one. Also, because the dress is quite flowy, a veil which is ankle length (or near enough) will echo the flow of the dress without cutting it off mid way, or adding bulk to your look in strange places. The problem with a short veil is that you then add the illusion of layers higher up, I think.

Have you tried on many veils? You also need to decide if you want a blusher… try one on, because you might change your mind!

@Rachel631:  Thanks for your suggestion 🙂 Yes Ihave tried the blusher veil on and i loved the effect… but I tried the long veil with blusher on a different simpler dress. I realised that a short shoulder length veil would look silly on that dress since it already has a sort of mantle attached to its shoulders… a long waltz veil is a good idea,very transparent so it does not hide the big rose that is in the centre of the back. 

alternatively it was suggested to me that I wear no veil at all but replace the veil with three small flowers on my hair, in the centre at the back of my head, to echo the rose on the back. and keep the hair siimple with a grecian hairdo…. 

i am thinking of going for simple since that rose on the back is the focal point of the dress…. it amazes me how much attention i am paying to this dress. never gave any dress such importance before!
