i made my own birdcage veil.  if you’re using tulle, i’m thinking you want a traditional veil.  i went onto youtube and watched a few instructional videos.

There are a lot of good websites on doing it. Here are a couple of websites that I looked at:  http://www.bridecraft.com/make-your-own-wedding-veil.html and  http://www.craftstylish.com/item/46914/diy-bridal-veil/page/all Just google DIY wedding veil and see which one you like the best.  I’m not getting married for a couple of years, but I’ve already made a small mock one.  They are a lot easier than you would think.  Good luck! And it will be a good way to save a lot of money 😀

I’m in the process of finishing up my own veil.  I actually made 2, one fingertip length and one cathedral length, both costing around $20 total.  I bought the wire comb on ebay for a dollar or so and the tulle was at a fabric store.  The tutorial that helped me the most was this one:http://www.chicaandjo.com/2008/04/08/make-your-own-wedding-veil/.

 

While a lot of them give good tips, the images on this one were the most helpful.  Tip, use  a wire comb, it is more flexible than a plastic comb and it is supposed to slide less.
