(Closed) Should I create my own veil?

    YES - if you can follow the embroidery pattern

    NO - It's too hard to create, buy a ready made one

    FORGET IT - the dress has too much color in it, a veil will not look good.

    TIARA? Are you 5 years old? LOL

    OTHER - comment please! Thank you!

    I don’t know anything about embroidering tulle, but making a single teir veil is pretty easy. There are tons of tutorials on line and it only takes about 15-30 min tops. I think a veil would look great with this dress. How do you feel about a plain one though because your dress has so much going on? I feel like the embroidery on the veil would take away from the dress and make it too busy.

    My mother and I made my veil out of a very thin organza instead of tulle- that was a BAD idea. It looked fine, but it was a nightmare to work with. I have worked with tulle, though, and you have to be very careful with stray threads, make the reverse look as good as the front, and watch your tension. By hand it’s do-able, but I wouldn’t want to use an embroidery machine on tulle unless you are a genius with the tensioner! It snags very easily.
