I’m new to Atlanta and have no idea how to make this wedding happen. I really don’t know any good vendors. I’m looking for a seamstress to make my veil. I’ve been to the boutiques and shopped online and omg, the prices are ridiculous. I was told to go to Gail K Fabrics. What a wonderful place. Only thing is, I don’t sew.
Can anybody help? I’m thinking a chapel length mantilla, square cut with blusher.

Welcome to Atlanta!! I bought my dress at Wedding Angels in Roswell, and before I was to wear my mom’s veil I was going to have one custom made by them. Olga I believe is the seamstress that makes them. Everyone is so friendly in the store, and they do custom work all the time (dresses and veils). I’m not sure of pricing though.

Look on this site. I’m thinking of buying my veil from them but I don’t know what the quality is like.

I got my veil from Veilshop.com, and I’m very pleased with the quality. Plus, I believe that you’re able to return or exchange it within seven days of receipt with the tag on it, if you’re not happy.
I ordered the fabric swatches ahead of time to match them to my dress, so the veil matches perfectly.

I’m planning on getting my veil from here:
I just set up an appointment to "visit" my dress so I can match the samples they sent me to the color of my dress. They have the best prices I’ve found and their customer service is outstanding from what I’ve seen. Good luck!

I wouldn’t add a blusher to a mantilla, it can look awkward, unfortunately. Instead, try pulling the mantilla forward, and pinning it near the center, as if it were a drop veil (or, try a drop veil instead!). Then you’ll have something to flip back. I’ll have a post up about this pretty soon, as that’s what i’m doing for mine 🙂

I just ordered my veil from here:
They had some nice mantilla veils as well, and very reasonable prices.
