My Very First Bridal Veil!

My old AE friend Bonnie asked me to make her bridal veil for her a while ago and I was a little antsy about saying yes.  That is a lot of pressure to put on myself.  Every girl dreams of her wedding day and wants every detail to be perfect.  I thought on it for a few days and decided that for personal growth and improvement, we all need to be pushed out of our comfort zone and challenged a bit, so I said yes.  The wedding isn't until January so I had plenty of time... this was back in the end of October.  Well November came and almost went so I decided that instead of continuing to stress about it, I would just do it and get it over with and she would have it in more than plenty of time.  So last week I put the pedal to the metal and made my first bridal veil!!!!  I knew I was capable of it but it was intimidating to me and I am a bit of a perfectionist and can be a little hard on myself.  But the end result was great!  I felt confident with the end product and was just waiting on her reaction.  I went to give it to her and.... she was ECSTATIC!!!  She loved it and put it on right away- which made it that much more rewarding.  I now know that I am capable of doing this type of head piece and that I can gain more bridal customers at the shoppe if that is a direction I want to head in the future.  I must admit, I was so glad to have it over with but I realized that it wasn't as hard as I thought and that I need to stop doubting my abilities.  So YAY me... I am so humble huh?

Don't mind my modelling, I had to get a picture of my creation :)


  1. It's VERY pretty! I want to see it with the Dress so don't forget to take a picture at the reception or something!

  2. Soo pretty! I love it.
    I am in love with peacock feathers.
