I had heard the veil should be a shade darker than your dress, so your dress doesn't look dirty. Well this was my exact problem! 2 weeks before the wedding I noticed my dress looked dirty when I put my veil on. Can you say "Ahhh!!"
I had ordered my veil online from Simply Bridal. Great website, with an abundance of choices between one tier, two tier, or three tier, attached comb, length, and trim.
I had always wanted a two tier veil so I could cover my face as I walked down the aisle with my dad.
Remember using tea bags to weather your paper for history class? That's exactly what we did, but with the veil!
The whole time we did this we were super nervous, but honestly what did we have to lose? We made a few jokes "what if I am walking down the aisle and the veil starts to drip tea!?" My Aunt Tania says "It's okay I will just follow you around all day with a glass and squeeze the tea out!" Once the veil dried we held it up against the dress.. held our breath and then let out a sigh! It worked!

The veil looked great with the dress!
