I so enjoyed creating this veil! This bride has been a friend of my daughter's since high school, so it was particularly special to be able to make her veil. She and her Mom definitely pictured her in a cathedral veil and had tried on several at a bridal shop. They decided they were just looking for a lace trim border along the bottom with simple finished edges on the sides. Her gown could definitely support a cathedral veil....as you can see it is has a very full skirt and a long train.
I chose to make the veil wider than most having seen the width of the train. I added some pearls and sequins just to add a little sparkle, especially knowing it was an outdoor ceremony; my hope was the sunlight would hit those sequins just so.......
Since she planned to take the veil off after the ceremony, I also created a comb that she could wear in her hair for the reception. The flower is made of fabric and has some pearls and lace as well. You can check out the details HERE.
I also thought I'd show you the bustle I created for her gown. A throwback to the 1890's; so romantic! It has a total of 5 bustle points; three buttons and 2 ties.
