So... Long story but I will try to keep it short. My aunt offered to tailor my dress. She is a seamstress and has made beautiful wedding gowns in the past so I 150% trust her work and judgement. I met her on Sunday at my mom's for the first fitting. Before she showed up my mom and I were test dying different laces to see how they turned out. Everything looked great but just a bit darker than my dress. When my aunt showed up she asked what we were doing and then asked to look at the veil with the dress. She begged me not to dye the veil because she has dyed things many times before and she said it would be a lot darker than my ivory dress. We tried on the dress with the gown and it actually doesn't look bad. She said an "ivory" veil will always be lighter than an ivory dress. I think I'm going to be play it safe and leave it as is.

Hmm, good to know. That makes me a little nervous to try it now. Although when I went to fabricland to pick up lace samples, the sales women there said that she thought it wouldn't take the color at all! I think I may wait and try everything on together as well and see how it all looks before I try it... I'd really hate to ruin it. Thanks for the info!! :)
