For the experienced seamstress--or even someone like
me (who is missing the "craftiness" gene)--making your own wedding veil
isn't really difficult and can be less expensive than buying one
(unless you buy on eBay or at a discount or through a wholesaler, where
a good selection of cheaply-priced veils is generally available).
Making your own wedding veil should be a "no rush" process. You will want plenty of time to
design your perfect veil and find the right
supplies to help you do so,
then more time for experimentation and careful construction. The specifics will vary
depending on how elaborate your veil is and whether you decorate a headpiece or
purchase one ready-made, but in general you will follow the steps in this
section when making
your own veil.
This veil making section of MyOnlineWeddingHelp.com includes both step-by-step
instructions and detailed videos of
every step as well as online resources for both veil making supplies and discount
wedding veils. The video to your left is an overview of the
five-step veil-making process.
