So I dont know if you need advice anymore, but I thought I would give some.  My grandmother is making my veil and she made my sisters last year.  She said that you just need to get the fabric of choice(tulle, lace…) and cut it to size for the most part.  She always gets double so she has extra, maybe make a pattern with some cheap dollar fabric. 

After you cut it you can add what you want with some glue, i would reccoment seam glue for lace.  Or anti frey glue.  And I know gma uses super and hot glue a lot for sewing.


Good luck!

Yep! Way cheaper if you make your own. You can buy the materials and take it to a seamstress. That’s what  I did.

You can buy the basic veil off of ebay or you can buy the material from any good fabric store.

Then you can get the hair comb or band from a craft store where you can also find lace trims and beads or pearls whatever you are after.

Glue is an option but it tends not to survive as well and it can create stiff points.  Thats not a big deal but the longer the veil the more it will effect the way it hangs.  As long as you are careful and conservative with the amount of glue you use it will work out fine tho!

Sewing beads or lace on is really not as tricky as it sounds.  Its the same basic theory as sewing on a button.  You loop through your bead or lace and loop through one of the holes in the tulle and then tie off a little knot.

Find a style you like and if you can get a picture up close of its details, chances are you can recreate it without too much difficulty.  it just might be a little bit tedious.
