If I decide to wear one I will! I’m still torn on the issue, but it looks so easy and there is NO way I’m paying 100-1000 dollars for tulle!

I am making mine myself but its really simple. I just picked the lenght of tulle that I liked trimmed off the square edges and then stitched it to a comb. Simple and easy

I’ll be doing the same!  I’m also making the jewellery for my bridesmaid and myself 🙂

These are photos of a wire and beaded ‘cage’ that I made for my university formal!

I DIYed my veil and it really wasn’t too bad.  Regular bridal tulle is relatively inexpensive (like $2-$3/ yard) and I used a pattern to make mine.  It tends to get expensive if you add embellishments like lace/beading- but even then I’m sure you can always plan ahead and buy it when it goes on sale to save some $$$.

I did my veils myself.  I think they turned out pretty well.
