Project Unveiled

I can finally share with you my most recent project because the wedding was on Saturday. My youngest brother got married, and I was able to help by making his bride's veil. After searching endlessly in Canada to locate French Veiling material, I finally had my mom look (currently living in the USA). She found it within hours of looking.

My instructions included "birdcage style veil", ivory french veiling, and a couple of photos of veils she'd seen and liked. In the end, this is what we came up with:

The decorative comb was purchased by the bride, and the veil was to somehow incorporate it. It was gorgeous and really pulled everything together well! If we had more time, I would have loved to try my hand at decorating a comb too - they are obscenely expensive (don't tell the bride I said that - wink, wink).

With the veil off-centered, it gave her a classic, yet flirty look. She pulled it off with style and grace.
The birdcage veil looked stunning on her and really suited her dress.

Wishing you two a Happily Ever After!

That is so cute! I love the classy vintage look it has. I've made a few "normal" veils but that is really great.
