  • Try to soften the veil – some advive on how to do that here – just please please pleasee be careful http://ca.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100316203055AAn4Rv0
  • See if you can find a shop willing to sell a sample veil although warning … with your wedding 7 days out this may be very stressful 
  • Ditch the veil and go for some other type of headpiece … a broach, flower … etc etc 
  • only wear the veil down the aisle and take it off for the rest of the pic … a lot of people do this anyway.

You have options though try not to stress too much … its just the veil

  Something similar happened to me. When I went to pick up my veil, I noticed that it was the wrong color. They found a girl whose wedding wasn’t until 10 months later and switched my veil out with hers. They said they were going to re-order her veil…I hope they did! I was on a short time crunch, like you. I hope something works out!

I had two ordeals over my veil. Both of the final choices take *four* months to manufacture. This is y I start things early!

OP, i understand the frustration. I am realizing that I am only wearing the veil for 20 minutes tops. Maybe u will grow to like it in the next week or so. I’ve had to have ppl take my hand and say ‘its ok. Its going to be fine. Its just a detail and ur not going to be wearing it very long. Its beautiful and will be beautiful with ur dress. Its not life or death.’ When I get too overwhelmed, it helps for someone to pat my head and say how it will all be ok in the end. 

And if not, i would try finding a sample somewhere. Maybe u can find something closer to ur style. 

Eta: I know how super aggravating it is to have the bridal salon do something like this. My first choice veil wasn’t available in white but the salon didn’t know this, I guess. But If Id worked there, I’d know whether a $265 veil is avail in white or ivory only BEFORE i ordered it for a bride. Two months after ordering I had to change my order to another veil that I didn’t like as much but stll over $200 that still takes 4 months. Its so irritating because THEY r the experts in this industry. Seems like a person has got to do everything her danged self to get things right nowadays or follow up on every single little thing. Its exhausting having to babysit ppl who r supposed to know how (and get paid) to do this stuff!
