My pics aren’t good but I made my own. I wanted a simple drop veil so mine was super easy and cheap. Originally I had ordered a silk tulle veil, because of some unforseen global issues, it didn’t come in time. A few yards of tulle, rounded the corners, draped it on my head, and attached with fancy hair pins. I loved it once it was all said and done. It turned out to be one of my favorite parts of my bridal outfit.

i’ll play. My version of Kate Moss’ veil minus bling and Galliano as personal veil fluffer. It involved .99 cent/yd tulle, a couple sheer ribbons, some rosettes I made out of scrunched silk and some appliques from my dress. My mom sewed combs in but we still had problems with it sliding back a bit. All in all not that difficult to make.

ceepeeembee:  Hey! I’m working on figuring out how to make a similar veil for my wedding in two months. What I can’t seem to figure out is the best shape to cut the veiling in before adding embelishments, etc. I’m going for fingertip length. Any tips? Thank you!!

theogirl:  I’m also trying to DIY my veil. I haven’t done it yet, but from my research, an oval shape is best. Just take your length and width, fold into quarters, and round the edges. But that’s just based on what I’ve read
