I found a 1940's era white hat at a vintage store years ago. I have a tendency to buy items that I am drawn to. I didn't have a specific purpose for it, but as my fiance and I started planning our wedding, it dawned on me that with french netting it would be the perfect veil for our vintage-romantic wedding. I purchased my french netting from BirdcageSupply on etsy.com. I gathered the netting and sewed it to the top if the hat to create a veil. I think it turned out to be a great headpiece and I only spent about $25 total. Are you planning a vintage themed wedding? What does your veil look like?
