If you’re going to have any kind of trim along the edge, i.e., lace or ribbon, you could run some of the same trim down the middle to cover the seam. I think just a seam going down the middle would look a little odd.

Silk tulle is gorgeous but you’re right, it is mighty expensive!

iF you gather it alot in the center and just tack it by hand along the seam you wont notice that its split and wont have a visible seam, maybe even put pearls or rhinestone over tack to hide that

I am a very A type personality, so I am going to say, no it wouldn’t work. If it was my veil, it would annoy the heck out of me to have a seam down the center. And I think that adding anything over the seam would just draw more attention to it. If that is the look you want though, then go for it. No one is going to think bad of you for it.

The other way to go about it is to have two lengths of fabric.

 The first piece goes in the center so you have no seam down the middle of your back.

 The second length of fabric is cut in half  lengthwise. You then sew a narrow section on each side of the first piece. You end up with two seams but covered with lace or beading, it looks intentional.
