Picking the Perfect Veil, and Making It Personal

I had a vision for the perfect veil to complement my dress, but I couldn't find it anywhere. I scoured the web and when I finally found something that looked close to what I'd imagined, it was way out of my price range.
Enter Etsy. I looked through every Etsy veil shop I could until I found a store that featured a few veils made of the same material as the one I wanted, at my price point. Then, I messaged the designer/store owner and started a dialogue. I sent her a handful of photos, we chatted online and over the phone, and I sent her extra material from my mother's dress. We discussed my vision, specific materials, my budget, and troubleshooting—she'd never made a veil like the one I was requesting. She even sent me photos of the veil in progress to make sure we were on the same page.
This morning, I woke up to an email that my veil had been shipped, and I cannot wait to get it! I think it'll be so fun and special to wear my mother's dress, with a veil made just for me.
