Product Description

Synopsis

Accessorising the bride can take a major chunk out of any wedding budget. Veiled in Beauty is designed to help the bride significantly reduce that cost, while attaining the fashion style and individuality she craves. The materials required for creating headpieces and veils cost a mere fraction of the ready-made retail price, and the skill and time necessary to make them are both minimal, Given the know-how found in this book and a few short hours of time, any bride, mother, or friend, can make the bride's headpiece and veil, while saving as much as 90 percent. With beautiful photography and clear, detailed information, the bride will discover all of her options in selecting and creating the perfect headpiece and veil to complement her dress. Information includes: selecting the proper length veil to complement the dress and the wedding style, selecting and creating a wide variety of headpieces, how to apply unique edgings and accents to the veil, how and where to attach the veil to the headpiece, how to secure the headpiece and veil to your bead, and how to properly store them after the wedding.

The book also helps the bride select and embellish gloves and shoes to perfectly coordinate with her outfit, as well as instructions for making a variety of garters. Great value and convenience for the consumer. Provides not just instructions for the costly headpiece, but other easy-to-make accessories for the bride's ensemble. Simple construction techniques. Average-to-beginner crafting/sewing skill level. Today's most popular veils and headpieces are taught, with over 25 styles to complement any gown. Information on selecting the proper veil length, how to secure the headpiece/veil to your head, and how to preserve your accessories after the ceremony. All items are shown in full-colour photography, providing a clear visual of the finished product.

Format: Paperback
Like other reviewers I too was slightly confused by the publishers claims that this book contains instructions for shoe/glove embellishment and for making garters, as the actual book itself does not mention any of these or claim to include them-someone needs to check this and sort it otherwise more people will be annoyed by this mistake.

Apart from this the instructions for veils and headpieces are pretty good, and easily enough to allow anyone to make a really pretty veil. Also good are the instructions on making a variety of ribbon and fabric flowers and decorations, and how to use real flowers to create a headpiece. Buy this if you want to make a veil or trim a headpiece, but not if you want anything else!

I bought this book because the publisher's synopsis states it contains not just veils and headdresses but instructions for wedding accessories including garters and shoe/glove embellishments. Search as I might, I could not find one word concerning these accessories. Veils and headdresses, yes, and pretty ones, but nothing more. I found it really disappointing. I already had "I Do Veils" (q.v.) so this book gave me nothing extra at all.

I purchased a 2nd hand copy from Goldstone Books this month, their delivery was prompt with a request for feedback. The content is slightly dated - 1980's but I feel still relevant. Do veils ever date? Plenty of advice and ideas to try out, lots of photos and drawings to look at. Found the text easy to follow. The suppliers listed are American, not an issue with me. I occasionally make period costumes and could incorporate some of the ideas given in this book for the head dresses. Easy to follow for novices. I am happy to recommend the book.
