@mmwar:  I actually like the color difference! It is a beautiful veil, btw, I wish my mother had something similar! I googled antique veil restoration, and it appears there’s a place in NYC that might be able to help: http://bridalveilfallsnyc.com/restoration/

@mmwar:  Last summer I needed to get some dark spots out of a linen table cloth, and I was super reluctant to try this at first, but I had very good luck spritzing the stains with lemon juice and letting them sit out in the sun. You might try that with the veil – you could use a lemon-juice-and-water solution if you were skittish about going with pure lemon juice, at least at first until you see how much it lightens.

But I’ll also echo the other post and say I wouldn’t worry too much about the color difference. In the photos, at least, it’s basically imperceptible. It’s easy to get carried away obsessing over details (believe me, I know!) but your veil is going to look lovely even if it is a tad darker than you expected.

I do not have any words of wisdom for correcting the color but I did want to tell you that I think your mother’s veil is just beautiful!!!!
