Gorgeous! I love drop veils, and yours is stunning. Congratulations on your hard work. How do you plan on attaching it to your head?

The reason I ask is because I converted my mom’s mantilla veil into a cathedral drop veil. Hair pins will hold it, but it didn’t feel 100% secure when I was walking in it because the pulling length is actually kinda heavy. I’m considering sewing a comb into it, but don’t want to lose the drop veil effect or make it look gathered at all. Would love to hear if anyone else has suggestions or an experience that worked for them!

it looks great!  i made a test veil using cheap tulle.  i wanted to test it out before buying the silk tulle.  mine was just plain cut edge so all i had to do was gather it correctly and sew.  i don’t think i have the patience to add the crystals. 

you can use hat pins to secure to your head or consider sewing it on a metal comb.

@profiterole: Where did you buy the silk tulle? I’ve been looking around and it’s very hard to find at a reasonable price.
