• Wedding Veils - Royal!

    I have been happily anticipating the British Royal Wedding of Prince William and Brilliant Katie! After watching hours of Royal Wedding Specials on PBS, BBC America and Lifetime, I learned that the length of the veil - or train - record currently belongs to Princess Diana at 25 feet.

    So, she had to have a pretty awesome veil to compliment the the train and, of course, the crown!

    All of this got me thinking about veils and how they can really enhance a hat design...

    Or sometimes, it becomes the hat.

    There are lots of creative ways to create veils out of a variety of materials including lace as you can see above. Ribbon is another material that can be used to structure a veil.
