Have you considered doing a tea-dye on it to darken it? My veil is a little light as well, but its beautiful so I'm going to attempt it! :)

I ended up contacting the seller and buying a second one! =/ It's still very white. That's a great idea. I have to figure out how to do that! LOL

I just googled "tea dye veil" and there were lots of DIY links that came up. I'm going to go to a fabric store and buy a little swatch of similar material as the lace and tulle to test it out first though. I'll make sure to let you know how it turns out if I get around to doing it before you! :)

Awesome! That would be great. When the veil is up against my dress you can't really see the color difference but when it's up against my hair and then falls to the dress is just looks so white. :( I really hope I can dye it!

Any luck with the tea dye? I've been watching tutorials but I'm still so afraid of messing it up :/

No, I haven't even bought test fabric yet... been too busy with school, and our wedding isn't until Jan '14 so I have lot's of time. I'll probably give it a shot around the end of the month when finals are done! :)
