Vintage Bridal Veil

One of my favorite things is vintage lace and vintage bridal collections.  They are very hard to come by especially if they are in pristine condition.  About a year ago, I found this vintage veil and it remains one of my favorite pieces of vintage textiles.



I would date it to the 1920's.  There is not a single flaw in the veil except for a little discoloration.
So when Carol at the Polka Dot Closet announced she was going to do a post on vintage bridal veils and asked if anyone wanted to join, I knew this was something I wanted to share and be a part of too.
So if you would like to see some other vintage bridal finds, check out these other blogs to see more of these exquisite goodies.
