Something Borrowed: Vintage Veils

June 17th, 2009 @ 10:17 am by Amy Salinger

Let’s talk recession proof wedding style. Is there any better way to look fantastic and give a shout out to your mom than with her borrowed veil? I think not! You have covered three bases in one, something borrowed, acquiring a headpiece and spending no money! I love innovative styling!

Many women have nothing to do with their beautiful gown and veil after the big day. They pack it up and tuck it nicely underneath the bed hoping that one day they will have a daughter who will wear it proudly. One huge problem, the likely hood that your daughter will not only be the same size, but actually like the dress is next to impossible! Styles come and go and trying to don a dress exactly as it was around 30 years after its original wear is a difficult task.

So, what better way to show off your mother’s beautiful wedding taste than to re-wear her veil and skip over the dress. There are options to re-work it in order to modernize it without taking away the heartfelt sentiment. Adding in a new head piece such as a broach, comb or crown is the simple way to make it your own and still show mommy that you love her.

Everyone is trying to cut corners no matter where the spending is happening, so why not think outside of the box for your wedding day as well. There are plenty of vintage pieces lurking around your grandmother and mother’s closets so jump on them fast! Work them not only into your wedding look, but your everyday look as well! :grin:

I was going to do this, but there was a problem…my mom’s veil is sooo yellowed from never being preserved and my dress is white-white! We’ve tried using Snowy White bleach and regular detergent to get it white, but it is still an ivory color. I think it would look off to have ivory veil and a white dress. Anybdy have any tips on getting it back to white? Thanks!

I wore my Mom’s 43 year old veil and it was perfect!!! She hadn’t even preserved it. Although I think it may have been white on her wedding day and it was more ivory on mine!! Loved the sentimental value!

@Becky: Rolls the cedrat heating fever, with these decadent soup immersion, scrubs clothes, and it pure white like new .
Drips into several drop of rice vinegars in the water, soaks for 1-2 hours the clothing or with washes rice the water also to be possible.
All these is my mother told me ,you could try it.
