I wish my mom had saved her veil, I love when people use it to wrap their bouquet.

I really wanted to incorporate something of my grandmother’s into my wedding. I actually cut a sleeve off of her dress and had it wrapped around the base of bouquet. Perhaps you could do something like that with the veil. Maybe have it twisted or braided around the bottom. You could even dye it to match your colors.

If you are OK with cutting it up you could use the material ap the stems of your bouquet.

It might be fun to use it for the rehearsal.

it would be gorgeous as a bouquet wrap! after the wedding, i’ve seen photo album covers wrapped with the mother’s wedding dress.

i’d say bouquet wrap, use as decoration in the reception somehow, and/or sew some of it somewhere on your dress (like on the inside lining if it doesn’t match your dress)

I also thought about maybe arranging it by the unity candle (if you’re having one).  It’s basicallly tulle, so maybe use it as an accent somehow.
