It has come to my attention that made to order veils are much prettier than the ones you normally see at boutiques, and though a lot of people have complained about how LONG it takes to get one done - I honestly think they're worth the wait. Also, I feel as if the veil makes the dress as opposed to the other way around. It's there for pious reasons, sure - yet we cannot escape the fact that it is also an instant beautification tool (it instantly illuminates your face as it frames it). I'm a huge fan of the embroidered kind, preferably in the style of the mantilla (the Spanish mantle). I've saved so many gorgeous jpegs during the search for my sister in law's perfect veil, here are a few favorites.
