My Veil

My mom made my veil! She used a Vogue pattern that we got at JoAnn fabrics.  We tried on some veils at David’s Bridal to get some ideas on what would look good and the veils there were all about $200! I didn’t want to spend that much money on something that I was only planning to wear for about an hour. My mom is so crafty and insisted on making my veil for me. 🙂 She just bought some ivory tulle to match my dress, used the Vogue pattern, and bought crystals and 2mm pearls and sewed them around my veil. It turned out so nice and I was really happy with it! For the clip, we got a really blinged out clip from Asian Mall.

My proud mama putting on the veil she made for me 🙂

Veil Shot! Instead of doing a two layer veil, we decided to do one layer so that the back of the dress could still be seen! You can see the pearls and crystals on the veil..so pretty and simple.

You can sort of see jeweled clip here..it was really pretty

Here's a picture of the veil from the back..we wanted the veil to hit just below the butt..not too long, not too short.

My mom did a great job!! The night before the wedding, when I was up at around 2 a.m., I was texting my brother and he told me my mom and my aunts were still over at the house talking and that my mom was still working on my veil. LOL! We are total procastinators..but hey, it turned out great!! lol.
