Colleen's Veil




I threw a "surprise" bachelorette party for my ex roommate last Sunday. We held the party at a local french restaurant Rendezvous Bistro off of Lawrence Ave. We had the whole place to ourselves to eat, drink, and play games. I think we had a little too many mimosas while playing janga, but it was still a lot of fun.

I worked on her veil after the party, and after a cup of strong coffee. Her veil had two hand made silk tulled flowers in ivory with pearl stamens. The veiling is an ivory bird cage netting and there is a triangle pearl detail that you can only see when viewing the piece sideways. Colleen has a slight obsession with triangles so I thought it would be a funny little thing to add to her veil. The actual veiling took a long time because she didn't want it to drape over her eyes, so I had to make it just right. At 2 am the next day I was finally done, and I am very proud of my work.







I will post more images when I get back from her wedding on Sunday.


Colleen came and picked it up the next day and she said she loved it. She also helped me come up with a Mission Statement for my line, let me know what you guys think! I personally love it.
