Some modern brides when drawing up their wedding image refuse to use a veil. Girls consider her a relic of the past and a conservative detail of a wedding dress. They prefer decorating their heads with artificial flowers, hoops, ribbons, tiaras. But the veil gives the bride mystery, airiness, touching. Even if you decide to abandon this wardrobe detail on your wedding day, then such a wonderful accessory should be present on the bride’s head at least during a bachelorette party.
What fabric is better to use for a homemade veil?
Traditionally, veils are sewn of light translucent materials: tulle, chiffon, tulle, organza, lace. But choosing the material for this accessory, you should focus on the wedding dress: its style, fabric, decor. So, in case of using silk material in the bride’s dress, it is recommended to choose lace for a headdress. Soft drop-down lace accessory goes well with silk or satin outfit.
A common fabric for veils is tulle, which is a fine mesh. It can be both soft and more rigid. Choose the level of stiffness of the material depending on the desired result. For flowing multi-tiered accessory use soft varieties of fabric. A mesh with increased rigidity will make it possible to produce a single-tier, solemn, well-kept veil shape.
