They might cut it in two, but I feel like I have seen lace trim like the one on the veil before. It is probably something hard to find though – most quality textiles are these days.


I think I would join the lace at the top of the head, though. It will be kind of tucked into the comb, right? And I would also try to join it where the pattern kinda repeats, so it’s symmetrical, and the join is less obvious.

I agree.  Tuck it into the comb.

Hi, I sell veils on etsy and have used that exact lace many times.

I can give you a little help……cut the lace down the middle and trim the edges as close as you can – for a cathedral length veil (108″ long x 72″ wide) you’ll need approximately 10 yards of lace so you can buy 5 yards of the double lace and after you cut it down the middle you’ll have the 10 yards needed. It’s best to join the two ends together at the narrowest point of the lace at the bottom edge of the tulle.

Let me know if you have any questions.
