Veil on a Budget

I'm so excited to have my veil completed, and I wanted to share some pictures! It's exactly what I envisioned, and it only cost ~$40. My mom is handy with a sewing machine and was able to make it this weekend. We picked out the tulle, trim and comb together. I was really disappointed with how expensive simple tulle veils were in the stores, so I'm glad we decided to go the DIY route.

    Thank you! I owe all the credit to my mom. I'd say that if you are going with a tulle veil with raw edges (no trim), it might be worth a shot to try making one. I think the fabric by itself was about $15, and all you would have to do is cut out an oval and stitch (or glue) it to a comb.

    It looks great! I don't know how much mine cost - Dad payed for it, but I can imagine that it cost way more than what it costs to make :/

    It's a circle veil and it's folded in two. I wanted a nice full veil since my dress is a ballgown shape.
