They make invisible thread, but I think even if you try to stitch the ends back together, the tear will still be noticeable because the material will overlap.  Depending on where the hole is, you might be able to just cut the veil shorter.  Or perhaps you can mend the tear and hide it under another layer of veil like a two-tier.

Best of luck!  And close the bathroom door next time you try on any wedding accessories!

I’m so sorry 🙁 I first read this as “… killed my dog” and I was like oh no!. As much as the veil being ruined is terrible it’s still better than how I originally read it.

If anyone has ideas on how to fix tulle I’m curious as well. I recently discovered a small hole in the outer front layer of the tulle skirt of one of the dresses I’m trying to sell. I’m devastated that I may not be able to sell a $4K dress because of a 1/2 inch hole. @Nola: I’m hoping there’s a way to mend tulle for both of our sakes.
