Rather than wear it as a veil, depending on the fabric and style of your dress, you could add it as a train by pleating it at the top and using hook and eyes to hang it from the waist of your dress.

Perhaps a seamstress could attach it to a headpiece,  or make a hood from it. Everything really depends on the style of your dress.

Another idea- make a sheer hood and attach the satin at the shoulders.

What about making it a sash or shawl for your dress?

It looks like the lace are appliques?  Can you have a seamstress take off the appliques and use them as a trim for a regular veil?  Unfortunately, you won’t be able to use the silk fabric part that way.  I like the sash idea if you’re not deadset on using the material for a veil!

@TogetherThroughLife:  Looks like the train has lots of lace appliques that could be removed and you could place them throughout on your veil

I think this would be very pretty kinda scattered throughout the veil!

It also looks like the trim around the edge could be removed and sewn onto a veil to create something like this


You could use them in a sash as well sewn onto some fabric…..depending on how much you have you could even do both!

You might be able to have the trim taken off and used to trim a veil. You should talk to a seamstress about options for the sash. You could also use it to wrap your bouquet

Yes, a good seamstress can take the appliques off with no problem. I have a veil shop on etsy and I’ve made several veils from lace from old wedding dresses, old veils and I’ve even made a veil with grandmother’s prized lace tablecloth.
