- Wedding: March 2011
I know I said I was probably going with a birdcage veil… or a tulle version… so I bought two white veils at the thrift store for five bucks yesterday!!! I actually really like one of them though and I’m considering wearing it for the ceremony then using the fabric from the second one to create a birdcage (and who knows what else! the second one is crazy long!) for the reception.
Anyway the one I like and might wear is pretty but has some spots on it up near the little comb, on the comb’s fabric flowers and on the tulle. I can’t even begin to guess what it is, it’s kind of orange (tomato sauce??)… but I was wondering if I can safely hand wash the entire veil and try and get this out. The fabric flowers on the attached comb are your typical poly satin I suppose.
Ditto the other one, because while it’s not stained, it smells kind of funky.
