Were you planning on wearing a blusher? If not, you can most likely cut the tulle where it attaches to the comb. Is it possible to post a picture?

I would try and salvage it if at all possible BUT since it’s your mothers and a priceless heirloom, I would take it to someone professional. Unless you are a pretty good seamstress and I mean no disrespect, I would take it to someone that can really work with it and believe me, some of the pros can do wonders! If you can’t get it fixed, maybe you can (with your mother’s approval) make it into something else, like your garter, your hankie, sew into your dress or add the lace to a new veil.

Good luck!

Without seeing the rip, I’m not sure how easily it could be patched.

 

What about keeping the veil part original, but replacing the blusher? I think it could be a meaningful symbol of new and old. Of course, you would want to see how your mom feels about it.
