If you’re thinking about wedding DIY, start with the veil

Your eyes are like doves’ behind your veil. (Song of Songs 4:1)

how to sew lace to wedding veilThe veil is so important in a traditional Jewish wedding that it has its own ceremony, the bedeken, before the huppah ceremony, when the groom lowers the veil over the bride’s face. If you’re thinking of doing any wedding DIY, start with the veil. A simple, classic drop veil is easy to make by machine or by hand, and after the wedding you’ll have an especially personal keepsake.

The drop veil offers versatile style options just by altering its length. Let it fall just to your shoulders, or to your elbow, fingertips, or the floor.
