I’m making my veil and am thinking about soft silk tulle. If you have a veil that is silk tulle please post a picture and give me details on the colour, length and width if possible. I would love to see how it looks on real brides.
Has anybody worn a ground length silk veil to an outdoor ceremony? I’m worried that the fabric might be too delicate and be totaly shredded as it drags down the aisle. Also, its a lot less see through than other tulle, would this be an issue if I wear a blusher?

I’m so sorry, I don’t have a veil to post – but I LOVE your “bump” picture 🙂

I just wanted to note two things. First, I wore a cathedral-length tulle veil to my outdoor ceremony, and it did catch on the concrete while I was walking down the aisle. Even knowing this, I still would have chosen it, because I loved it.
Also, when I discovered that the veil I had chosen was $500, I just assumed that it was silk, given the price. (I originally wanted a silk-tulle veil, since my dress was silk.) However, I learned that the veil I had chosen was not made of silk tulle, and the the owner of the bridal salon where I purchased it explained that silk tulle is extremely fragile and tends to tear very easily, so she advised me against considering silk.

@MsMeow: lol, thanks! :p
Yeah I worry about that :/ My dress is silk also, so I was worried that nothing else would match as well. Its an unbleached silk colour, so a deep ivory, and veils at the bridal stores didnt seem to match at all in colour or texture. Do you know what brand and style your dress was?

I wore a dress that is now discontinued, James Clifford 1648, and it was silk taffeta in “diamond white” — which is basically a light-ivory color. I purchased a light-ivory, tulle veil to match, and it looked great.
Does your dress have a silk-tulle skirt?

haha oops. I meant *veil* not dress. That would make a lot more sense :p
Yes, my dress is silk tulle and silk organza. It’s Hayley by Vera Wang.
