Caring for Your Veil
How do I store the veil until my wedding day?
Remove the veil from the packaging and hang it from the center of the comb (teeth pointing up toward the ceiling). Many brides choose to hand the veil on a hanger in a cool, dry place.
How do I remove wrinkles from my veil?
Hang the veil over a hanger, and over time most of the wrinkles will fall out on their own. However, you can also hang the veil in the bathroom with a hot steamy shower running to get out any stubborn wrinkles. In addition, you can also take the veil to a reputable dry cleaner and ask them to steam it for you--it usually only takes a few seconds to complete.
DO NOT use an iron on your veil! The veil is so delicate that it will just melt.

What veil colors do you offer?
- "White" - is a pure, bright white (similar to bleached paper).
- "Diamond White" - also called Off-White or Silk White - It is just a tad bit darker than white. It is a color between white and ivory, but is closer to white on the spectrum. This is confusing for some brides because “diamond” seems like it would imply this color should be a brighter “white”. However, diamonds do have a tinge of ivory or yellow – therefore the name! Diamond white wedding veils are perfect for “natural white” dresses, “light ivory” dresses, or off white dresses.
- "Ivory" - has pale cream undertones. This is by far the most popular color for wedding dresses, but there seem to be literally hundreds of names that designers use for their ivory-colored wedding dresses: pearl, vanilla, cream, eggshell, and more! So, what’s a bride to do?
It is very important that you ask for a swatch from your veil designer to ensure it really matches your dress. This will save you time and money in the longer run, and it will ensure that you walk down the aisle looking elegant and radiant. Order free samples of tulle and lace HERE.
