My seamstress mentioned fixing veils randomly in a conversation so I think it is possible.  Maybe call a local person up and see if you can stop by and get a quote for the fix then ask the store for that much in a discount 🙂

Yes, I would contact a seamstress and see.  I know they fixed my friend’s veil.  Couldn’t hurt to ask.  Good luck!  I’d be so sad!

Hi, I have an etsy shop and make veils and I’ve repaired several veils. You can wash the veil in the sink with a gentle detergent like Woolite to get the marks out, tulle is quite strong so you can scrub it good. As for the rip(s), can you get some kind of beading that would somewhat match the beading that’s already there? Or a lace type of applique can be stitched over it – just get I second appliqué to put on the other side so it would be even and it would look like its part of the design.

Hope this helps – good luck.
