NOVELTY VEILS

Designers are sure making great use of all those lovely gossmer fabrics these days. Yes, the veil seems to be taking a turn fabricwise. Tulle is still standard but check out these organzas and sheer laces.

Some hints on choosing a veil: Generally, more ornamental gowns look best with simple veils; whereas all over lace veils or ones edged with wide borders require a simple gown with little adornment. Your dress might have some exquisite back details you want to show off. If this is the case select a shorter veil.

Amy-Jo, do you design veils? I need to start the big hunt for my veil very soon, and you are such a great resource for style and design. Just thought I'd ask.
