Hmm, it might depend on how it was made, whether it’s supposed to look like that.  I’ve seen some where the satin is smoother and some that look like that.  

Was it expensive?  If so, you can get an inexpensive raw edge tulle veil on Etsy… if you don’t want to cut up this one but want raw edge.

can you iron/starch it?

that doesn’t look like satin edging.  Here’s a fingertip satin edge veil that I bought and ended up not wearing.  You can see the edging is smooth.

Regardless, I like the look. Don’t cut it.

I don’t think it’s supposed to look like that but I think it’s kinda cool.

My veil that I ordered from Etsy arrived like this too, but I put it in the hot steaming shower and afterwards it looked smooth. I don’t think it is supposed to look like that at all. I would definetly change it, it looks not very flattering…

I think it looks odd.  Maybe just extra squished in shipping?  You could maybe try a cool iron with the veil edge between damp cloths.

@NYBubblesBee:  Either the manufactuerer used the wrong stitch in sewing on the trim, the glue caused the tulle to wave/wrinkle like that, or it’s just a very-fixable issue from being stuffed into a package. 

Definitely try steaming that out before resorting to any cutting. If it were intentional, the wrinkles would look more like intentional, uniform waves:
