Usually the unfinished edge is the part that is closest to your head, so you may not have to do anything with it, depending on how you’re wearing your hair. Have a picture?

@takemyhand:  It deoends on how your want the veil to fall.  Do you want it to lay flat on your head or pouf up a little?

If you want it to lay flat, just trim the excess tulle as much as you can without compromising the stitching, then cut a length of ribbon that is slightly wider than the top of the comb and about 1/2″ longer on both sides than the comb.  Hot glue the ribbon on top of the comb and then fold the excess ribbon under the backside of the comb and glue to secure.

If you want the veil to have a pouf, just take the bunched tulle at the top of your veil and fold it under so that the excess tulle (above your stitch line) is folded back under the veil, creating a little lift at the top of the veil.  (You can trim the excess or leave it longer depending on how much pouf you want – more pouf = shorter excess.)  Sew the fold onto your comb with a series of running loop stitches in the same color as the veil.  Although it will look weird to you to see the excess under the top of the veil, I promise you won’t see it once it is in your hair.

Good luck!

see how this one is? The unfinished edge is close to the head, so the veil itself is tiered over top of it. If you attach it right (push it in and go down with the comb), you would decorate the part (if you want) that is seen.
