One of the best things about handmade weddings is the unique one-of-a-kind items! There are custom-made things by handmade artists that you’d never find in store. For instance, this beach wedding veil, spotted over at All For Love By Gina, is handcrafted with an authentic (+ thoroughly cleaned, mind you) fishnet-turned-wedding veil for the beach-loving bride. It has been hand-embellished with mini seashells, mini starfish, and faux pearls. This veil is a truly unique piece that will look phenomenal in your wedding photos. Take a look…
