Veil Help? Wearing Grandma's Veil But Need Advice.

Recommended Posts

I’m wearing my Grandma’s veil from her wedding in the late 1940’s. Here’s what she looked like. Gorgeous, right? 




Here's what the veil looks like now.




It's in pretty good shape! But it does have a few tears that need sewn up. I’m also going to have the seamstress sew some sparkle in to make it go better with my dress. Here's my dress with a different veil for reference:






My grandma's veil has a headband attached to it that I just don’t know how to wear. Our wedding is on the beach so it’s going to be very windy and wearing my hair down is not an option.


Is there a way to style my hair and wear the headband so it can go underneath a low updo? Or am I just going to have to have the headband removed? I'd rather not if possible just because it's so sentimental to keep it as she wore it. Thoughts??
