If they don’t take it back or let you exchange it can you take it to someone who does alterations to see if they can fix it?  Maybe someone who knows what they are doing will be able to make it the way you want it to be? How much did you pay for it? Maybe you could sell it here or on eBay and then buy the one you really want?

I believe the narrower the top is, the less full it will be — it’s the gathering of all that extra fabric to the length of a hair comb that adds that extra poof. Since you already know width is an issue, can you see if a seamstress will take that extra width off the top and bottom? I’m no seamstress though…

Anyway, at least have the alterations priced out and see if it’s worth the extra costs. You might be better off selling your existing veil online and getting one through a place like Occansey or Veilshop. Good luck =)!

I think charmedbride is onto something.   Can you take one of the layers off?    Also, was the mistake on the part of the bridal shop?  Do you have a written recepit of what you ordered?  If so, they should correct it at no charge to you.
