Making my own veil

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies, I just can't bring myself to pay $100+ for a veil, so I'm going to try to make my own. My goal is a single tiered, elbow/waist length veil with a beaded edge like the one I tried on with my dress. 700 So, I've been to FabricLand and bought 1 yard of tulle for $5, I got a plastic comb at Ardene as part of their 5 for $10 promotion, and I already have beads, rhinestones, and fabric glue at home. Now I'm trying to figure out what type of beading to do around the edge, what do you guys think, here are a few options. 337 I chose to glue the beads because I tried sewing them on and it looked horrible! I'll post some more pictures as I go.

I agree - I would mix and match the beads and crystals. Here's a pic from the detailing on my veil. It's pretty simple, but it has a lot of sparkle to it. Good luck!!

I am 100% for trying to DIY your veil...I think the scattered beads will look awesome and catch the sun beautifully!

 

I don't know if I'm sold on the idea of a veil for myself yet (or DIYing it) so I bookmarked this Etsy seller who has some reasonably priced veils, thought I'd pass it along incase anyone else was looking for a veil for less than bridal house pricing.

Yeah, I totally chickened out of the DIY. I have 3 yards of tulle in my closet and a comb, but I've heard it's really hard to cut, and overall hard to work with. Not sure I believe that..but I still wasn't going to shell out a fortune for a bunch of tulle! 

 

I found some really inexpensive ones on eBay - Venus_Veils is the seller. My veil is GORGEOUS, and a cathedral with beading shown above for $37 (free shipping too!). It was a total bargain.

I bought my veil from this seller and it is PERFECT! She is a great seller to purchase from and work with and the quality is great. I wasn't sure about DIYing my own veil but was sure I didn't want to spend even close to $100 or more on one so I went with Etsy and I am so glad I did!

Great - thanks for sharing that, I'm definitely leaning towards buying one and then deciding day of if I'll actually wear it!

My grandmother made my veil. I think the total cost was $8. We picked out the tulle and had to buy an $3 metal comb at the craft store. She actually had a pattern for veil, but I cant imagine it would be expensive to purchase one. There were several patterns for veils at Jo Anns fabrics. I didnt want to pay a lot for a veil in case I decided not to wear it either, so this worked out perfectly and it had a little sentimental value because my grandmother made it.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
