do it! 😀 a DIY veil is probably one of the biggest bang for buck and for effort as far as DIY projects go. The site that Mrs. Spider linked was the one I used, too.

my mom and i made my veil. it was ridiculously easy. i wanted a very simple veil, just one piece of tulle with no extra adornments, so we didn’t do any complicated stictching like mrs. spider did.

we decided where to gather the tulle (near one end, so we could just cut off the extra since i didn’t want a blusher). my mom used her sewing machine to gather the tulle and i stitched the gathered part to the underside of the comb by hand. we still have to trim the extra and round the bottom.

now i’ve decided i want a longer one, so we’re making another, so that should tell you how easy it was.

go for it!  my mom is making my veil as well.  it is a single layer organza veil, attached to a comb.  she’s creating a hem and rounding the fabric on the one end and gathering up the other end.  we’ll attach to the comb by hand stitching.  tulle would be easier to work with (no hemming), but it isn’t a huge project.  the fabric generally isn’t expensive, so you can play around and try a few things.

My grandmother made my veil the morning of the wedding from 9 feet of tulle we purchased for $5 from Joann’s. It was a cathedral length drop veil with rounded edges attached with two hair pins. I loved that she remembered to make me one because I forgot about having one, and it looked great in the pictures (taken by Heather Ahrens).
