@futuremrsgo:  I think they actually forgot to steam it…  Do you have a humidifier you could run with it hanging above?  Or put it in the bathroom when you shower.

I’d bring it back to the salon and ask how to relax the edging! Ironing could help, but be sure you know what the fabric is first!

I would try to steam it before you freak out. It may be an easy fix

@futuremrsgo:  I agree with PPs, it looks like they forgot to steam it. It’s a really pretty veil, don’t give up on it so quickly ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

Take a shower when you come home and take your veil to the bathroom with you. It should give you a pretty good idea about whether to go murder someone at the bridal salon or just be happy ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Good luck, I hope your veil uncurls!

It looks like there is twice as much fabric as in the one you tried on! But steaming may fix that. I look like I have twice as much hair when its curly to when its strait. Good luck.

That’s so frustrating! They clearly didn’t steam it. I wouldn’t try to do it yourself though. God forbid something happened to it, you would probably have to pay for/order another one. At least taking it back to the salon would ensure if something happens, it’s on them and not you! If you don’t have time, the most I would suggest doing is putting it in the bathroom with the shower on as hot as you can possible get it for as long as you can leave it in there. Good luck!

They either didn’t steam it, or did a really half assed job of it.  Tell them to steam it again, or if you have a steamer at home do it yourself (personally I wouldn’t trust them anymore and would have to do it on my own, but thats the control freak in me lol).

A handheld steamer or bathroom steaming – do not try to iron it……I make bridal veils on etsy and I get so many paniched emails from brides in a bind needing a new veil becaise they bought a veil from somewhere else and tried ironing the veil and burned a hole in the tulle.


Also, the cathedral length veil looks to be 72″ wide and the fingertip veil you tried on originally looks to be maybe 54″ wide. The fingertip veil does have curled edges but it looks like they’ve relaxed from wear and tear…..your new veil is fresh and new so that’s why the edges are so curled.


Good luck.
