What materials did you use? tulle, thread,a comb. and a spray of flowers- she could not find a head piece that she liked that would not flatten her hair.

What are you most proud of? The veil that matched the wedding gown cost $400.00 and we could not afford it. I only got one month's notice to plan the wedding and pay for everything. She loved the one I made more than the original one from the store and was proud that she had an actual "original" of her own. I was thrilled that our "shoestring budget wedding" turned out to be one she was proud of. The cost of this one was only $20.00.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Choose a style that fits the dress and give yourself enough time to locate a pattern that is close to what the bride has in mind, if possible. You may have to make changes so that it will stay in place through the ceremony.
