Tell us how you began your veil business.



“I was a new bride on a budget and had the hardest time finding my dream veil. I wanted a long, lace cathedral veil but just could not afford the bridal store prices!”

I set out to make it my mission to handcraft gorgeous bridal veils and accessories, but to make sure to always sell them at an affordable price to the everyday bride. Wedding are so expensive and we don’t believe you need to settle on a your dream wedding veil because of cost.”
