Just wondering if anyone has ordered a silk tulle veil – is it worth the money? Does it look good in pictures?
I would LOVE to have a beautiful flowy veil like Mrs. Ant…and I think it’s made of silk tulle, but I can’t tell for sure. http://www.weddingbee.com/2008/05/12/isle-style-the-unbridaled-story/
Thoughts, opnions, or pictures of similar flowy veils with purchasing information would be greatly appreciated!

The silk tulle material is much more flowy than the bridal illusion if that’s the look that you desire.
This site has a good comparison of the different materials. http://www.tradewindtiaras.com/tulle.html
I was sold on the silk tulle material after I tried it on at a bridal store.. but not the 1600 price tag. kid you not, that veil was more expensive than the gown i was trying on! I was looking for a non poofy top and silk tulle provided just that.
However, the material is very expensive. $60 a yard vs $3 a yard for bridal illusion. If you would like to make your own, you can order from Hannson silks in London. You can also have Sew Deb make your veil for you for a nominal fee. Hannson can ship the material directly to Sew Deb. She is very helpful and responsive.
My veil is from Sew Deb. One thing you have to consider is if you want to have a blusher. The Hannson’s silk is very soft, and tends to cling like a stocking. Not the most flattering as a blush, but second to none when worn in the back. lt’s so pure and flowy. There is another type of silk tulle that has more crisp to it (from Crowning Glory).
HTHs. I have a catherdral length and elbow length one to change into after the ceremony.
