"Wedding Veils by Denise"

Officially launched!

When our youngest daughter, Carrie  was preparing for her wedding last year she naturally tried on veils at the same time she purchased her beautiful gown. We were shocked by the high cost of veils so she asked me if I could make her veil.  A little scary!

I spent many hours sewing on beads and ribbon and lovin' it.  I surprised her when I flew in for her bridal shower a month before the wedding carrying in the short veil.  (The plan was to wear a short and a long one so the long one would be removed for the reception.)  Whew!  That was a big thing to check off our growing list, but somehow, somewhere
the veil disappeared

following the last gown fitting!

Five days before the wedding I began re-creating her two veils.

As a result and thanks to the encouragement of my daughters I began making veils to sell at a much lower price than are sold in bridal salons.

I love deciding what I will do different on the next veil--each one unique, some with beading, some with silk ribbon or satin cording,  or some with decorative stitching.  Before I make the first cut I must decide will it be  "simple" elegance, long, short, full, single or a double veil.  Each bride has her own "idea" of her dream look!

I suggest trying on veils at the salon for length and style to catch that perfect complement for the bride and her gown.

So, today I launched "Wedding Veils by Denise" online at yardsellr.com with the help of pinterest and Facebook.    Check them out.

Perhaps you'll find your dream veil that will work with your budget.  Prices range from $35-$50...
