Firstly, you need to know what standard length of wedding veils is you would like to. Usually, the length of wedding veils can be divided into shoulder length bridal veil – 24: elbow length bridal veil – 30: fingertip length bridal veil – 40: ballet/waltz length bridal veil – 52: chapel length bridal veil – 90: cathedral length bridal veil – 110. Next then it is very important to know more about the bridal veil patterns. The most common material for bridal veil patterns is bridal illusion. Most of the bridal salons have bridal veils made of bridal illusions. The bridal illusion is simply known as ‘tulle’ in the wedding industry and is 100% nylon tulle. In addition, silk tulle is another one of the most luxurious fabrics of veil materials. This is the most hard bridal veil materials of all. It is only available in few high-end retail shops and online retailers. It is 100% silk and has a hexagonal interlock. It is softer than the bridal illusion and English netting. It can drape and fall better than the other two and is very flat when gathered. It is almost a sheer fabric suitable for blusher layer.
Now it is time to DIY wedding veil. First and foremost, you need to use a rotary cutter and a self-heating mat to cut a bridal illusion, English netting or silk tulle easily and give a clean cut to the fabric. You may use a pair of sharp scissor for cutting the veil material, but make sure you avoid jagged ends. When cutting the tulle, fold the fabric in half lengthwise. This makes it easier to cut a symmetrical curve at the bottom.
Once the veil is cut in desired shape, before gathering, add the embellishments to the veil. You may use sequin, pearls, etc. to embellish your veil. You may even glue in rhinestones. Then place the embellishments evenly when the veil is spread flat and embellishments look more tightly spaced on the top once you gather the veil. You may even add the embellishments after gathering the veil, but I prefer doing it before.
Using a needle, thread in the button thread. A whip stitch is used to run a thread along the straight edge of the veil on the top. You should push the fabric along with the thread to make the gathers. Secure the gathers using a knot that is about three inches wide at the top. The width may also depend on the width of the comb on which the veil is attached. Cut off the excess material and glue the veil to a hair comb. You can even attach the veil to a bridal tiara or decorative headband or barrette. Put in a decorative stitch, around the edges, matching the color of your wedding theme or wedding gown.
