    Starter Veil Marion Blue

    Posted by Unknown on 20th Mar 2019

    This is my first time veiling and I am 42. I remember my grandmother always veiling and thinking I couldn’t wait until I could veil but never did. I searched many places online and couldn’t quite find one that I liked then u found this site. This veil far exceeds my expectations, it is beautiful!!

    Starter Veils for Bridesmaids

    Posted by kemp422 on 11th Mar 2019

    I ordered five navy blue starter veils for my August wedding. They were ready to ship, came quickly, and are all lovely! I emailed customer service before ordering to ask for some advice and heard back promptly, with helpful tips for ordering for a wedding. Thank you, Veils by Lily! Will always be my favorite veil shop! Will review again after the wedding when I can share pictures.

    Delighted With My First Veil

    Posted by Bluebird on 9th Mar 2019

    I had on my heart to wear a chapel veil for quite some time, and after doing a search online, I found Lily’s website. I pondered some more and finally decided to wear a chapel veil even though no one does in my parish. I chose the Starter Veil in “Twilight Blue” color. The order was processed in a timely manner and well packaged. I was not disappointed when I saw my veil. It is really beautifully made. I love the pattern of the lace, with those delicate small flowers. For anyone with waist length hair wondering if a short veil would be suitable with long hair, I can say that it works great. As I didn’t want to risk the distraction of trying to keep my veil in place during mass; I asked for the “mini comb snap clip” that is offered for free with the purchase of a veil. I’m glad I did, with it the veil stays perfectly in place! I chose to sew it myself, note that an embroidery hoop will make thing a lot easier. Without it, it’s a struggle with the lace (I started like that). I also requested the cards about the wearing of a veil, to hand out. I had a compliment on my veil, and someone else just said “it was years she had not seen anyone wearing one”, which opened up a door to talk about the reasons behind veiling and the fact that it has nothing to do with fashion. Other people in my parish gave me side looks but again I explained the reasons behind veiling and they are now getting accustomed to seeing me wearing it. Recently I bought one of the “Chinese Blossom Veils”, which were there only for a short time. If they would come back, I also recommend them! They are beautifully made, very delicate, short veils but with a long fringe. In that collection I bought the moss green which was a very nice color. Again my order was promptly processed and well packaged. This is a store that I highly recommend :)

    Plum starter veil

    Posted by Unknown on 6th Mar 2019

    Just opened my package, and of course, immediately tried it on. The color is so rich and the lace is just beautiful. And it arrived just in time for Ash Wednesday Mass. As I place the veil on my head and prepare for the upcoming Feast, I will whisper a prayer of gratitude for you. May God continue to bless your ministry.

    Starter veil

    I'm a convert. There are not many ladies in my parish that wear veils. I wish there had bee instructions on how to wear it and how to put in comb.

    Starter Veil

    This is a great veil. Lightweight and made extremely well. Perfect length for a starter veil - not too long and not too short. Arrived quickly!

    Beautiful, soft veil! I just started wearing veils to mass and had been using a cheap one from a big online retailer. Then when this one came in I wore it to mass and loved it so much more! Fabulous quality for the price and it’s lightweight., my previous one was a little heavier. Plus I added the snap in comb and it stays put perfectly. I used bobby-pins before and struggled keeping my veil on with them! Shipping was very fast!
