Originally I said I didn’t want a veil.They seemed a bit stuffy, old fashioned and I thought because I was young I’d feel like I was playing ‘dress up’ with one on.
But after trying one on in the shop with my ceremony dress, I decided that I did want one; not the type I’d tried on (a fingertip length veil with crystals on) but a LONG single tier cathedral length veil!
However, I knew I couldn’t afford the ones in the bridal shop, so one afternoon I decided to have a go at making one myself! I bought the ivory tulle and the metal hair comb off eBay and followed a couple of tutorials online. It wasn’t too hard and it only cost me £4.04!!! It didn’t have any embellishment or sparkles on it at all, but I think with all the detailing on my dress, plus having the lace bolero on as well it was just right.
