One question I've been hearing a lot lately is, "How do I actually wear an allover lace veil?"
The answer to that is, "Let me count the ways." Lace veils can be tied like a cloche, dropped, wrapped like a scarf or simply tacked to the back of your head to flow in a swirl down your back. Truth is, your possibilities are almost endless.  Starting here,the most important thing to remember is, take the initiative to explore and above all be inventive!
The first time I ever laid eyes on a crocheted veil was 7 Thanksgiving Eves back  when a friend  married a woman who crocheted her own.  I was as impressed with her creation as I am the veil above featured in Harper's Bazaar Russia// via Tumblr

In traditional Spanish fashion a lace mantilla is dropped over the head--in this case over a rather large rose. Brilliant!  Gorgeous!  Basaldua of Madrid. 

Ah but there's nothing like a great image to inspire. Below are some pinterest boards that had me at hello!
