Vintage Bridal Veil Restoration
When restored, vintage Brussels lace veils and lace-trimmed vintage veils will blend beautifully with your wedding gown. Most vintage lace is made from sturdy cotton, and we can safely remove ugly brown stains and yellowing. If you would like to know what type of lace you have, such as Point de Gaze, Duchesse, or Princesse, some of the best illustrated books on lace can be found at http://www.lacemerchant.com. The sister website http://www.lacecurator.info is a useful guide to collecting and caring for lace.
Some vintage lace is appliquéd onto silk illusion, which is often too fragile for restoration. However, the silk illusion can serve as a pattern for a new veil of nylon or polyester net. The lace itself can be removed, restored, and resewn onto the new veiling.
Vintage Bridal Tiaras
If you are not interested in wearing a vintage bridal tiara, but you love the veil, let us remove the tiara and restore the veil, which can be attached to a comb. Or lace on the vintage tiara can be removed, restored, and used to create a new ornament for your hair.
Although not every treasured wedding accessory such as a vintage veil, ring pillow or wedding pouch can be successfully restored, we can usually predict whether it’s possible, and there is never a charge for evaluation. Bring your vintage wedding accessories to a Certified Wedding Gown Specialist™ near you.
