I’m getting married in three weeks. I bought my veil with my dress a very long time ago before I had even considered my hairstyle. I want to wear the veil under a low updo, and I want the detail on the back of my gown to show. However, my two-tier veil really obstructs that detail, plus it is champagne (like my gown) and the two layers on top of each other make the color look really dark and kind of dirty.
I’m contemplating cutting out one layer of my very expensive veil, and I guess I’m just wondering if that’s a terrible idea. I don’t see how it could hurt the veil, but I’m still nervous to mess with it. Any reason I should stop myself?

Hmmm. I would cut it. Verrryyyyyy carefully. Is there a way to use a seam ripper? And is there any way you could cut it….but put it back together again if you decide you don’t like it that way?

would you be able to pin it up? or kinda mess with it a little where it bunches in a pretty way. if you’re set on cutting it, just make sure it’ll be PERFECT and exactly what you want.
as long as it’s what you want!

cut it. but like someone said above, do so very carefully. Champagne colored veils are tough. They can look dirty like you said. I think one layer will make it more sheer and allow people to see the detailing on the back of your dress. Good luck!

maybe you can play with some other fabric just to be sure of the shape, then once your decided make the cut – reaaally carefully 🙂

I already feel a little better just knowing it’s not crazy. I’m going to my last fitting tomorrow, and I’m going to wait until then to decide for sure. Thank you for giving me a little confidence!
