      As Abbie put it ... I'm famous! lol How fun, my picture and testimonial are up on their website. They got my last name initial wrong (there is no "W" anywhere in any of my names!), but oh well.

        Anne, thanks for the referral, I just got the samples in today and I can't tell the difference between any of them, they all look the same color. I am in a lit room, i'm going to look in natural day light tomorrow. But you ordered 1 layer - right? Did you feel like it was thick enough to see the ivory color? My dress is ivory and i don't want the veil to look white. the website says the less layers the less you can see the color. What do you think? 1 layer or 2?

          If your sample is a big enough piece of material, fold it over a couple of times and you should be able to see the difference in the colors when comparing the samples side by side.

          My samples all looked alike, but folding them over shows their true color. Mine is a single layer in champagne and it is perfect with my dress.

            Ah, thats right they did say to do that. but if you order one layer, there is no fold over, so what color does it look like then? thats why i was wondering about 1 layer or 2?
            thanks for the help!

              It will look the color of the folded over layers, especially if your dress is ivory and your veil is ivory.

              Like I said, mine is a single layer ... and it's perfect.

              Here are a few pics of mine. Champagne veil to match the trim of my dress.

                wow that is beautiful. So is it the darkest color they have? is it darker than your dress? and did they do custom beaning to match your dress?

                  hhmmm... I can't remember if it's the darkest. It might be. It's no dyed to match. I just bought it hoping for th best and knowing there was time to exchange it for ivory if the champagne was too dark.

                      I ordered mine online (thanks to Ann for such a great review/referral). I was very pleased. I'll take pics once I have my hair trial :)
