I think it’ll be great! But, question, if you don’t know how long it is going to be until you go to your fitting, what happens if you need to cut it and you already have sewn some flowers?

And are these flowers goign all the way around your veil and by your face? Make sure you love the flowers closer to your face, because those will definately show in your pictures. I think the flowers are cute, and you can’t expect them to be perfectly shaped because the holes in tulle are so big and far apart.

You are doing great, I love your idea. It adds such a nice detail and sparkle.

YAY! I’m so glad you posted pictures finally!

I’m just trying to conceptualize this. Are you planning on scattering flowers all over the bottom or just along the curve?

How much time is it taking per flower?

I’m still “thinking” about mine. I did a “mock” veil and I don’t like the curve I’m getting on it. I want the curve of the veil to match my train…which is at the shop so I have no idea how I am going to accomplish this. ๐Ÿ™

I wanted a completely plain veil but when my mom got married, she wore a cathedral length veil and she and my grandma hand-beading the entire thing to match the beading on my mom’s dress.  They used 10 of thousands of beads and more hours than I want to imagine but it looked gorgeous!

go team! i’m going to try applique-ing some “petals” onto a cathedral veil & blusher that I got on ebay, hopefully looking like this:

i figured i’d get some yardage of chiffon or organza and cut them out into petal/cherry blossom-y shapes, figure out a way to finish the edges on the petals/blossoms, and then attach them by either sewing a little x in the middle or a dab of some kind of magic glue. any suggestions? it says it has sequins on it too (maybe the little white dots?) but i don’t think i’m sold on those. maybe a few beads or crystals?

@ellabee: done! i was on the fence about them but i’ll definitely look into that now! a good tip i heard on those is to double side them on the blusher so that way when it’s flipped to the back it still sparkles ๐Ÿ˜€
