Announcement   Welcome to Veil Artistry on Etsy! Use the Search box above to search for veils by theme (i.e., Goth, Vintage, Boho), by length category (cathedral, sweep, elbow, etc.) or veil style (classic, simplicity, sunbeam, birdcage, radiance, mantilla, cascade, fountain, pouf, bubble, or blossom.) Or simply peruse my extensive collection of unique and timeless bridal veils, headpieces,and other wedding accessories for the exquisite touches that will complete your bridal look! Converse with me if you envision a custom design or want to combine elements that you see in some of my other creations.

For more ideas and to see many of my veils on actual brides, visit my photo gallery at www.VeilArtistry.com/my_brides.html.

You can also "Like" me on Facebook at and see more photos of actual brides and current projects at www.Facebook.com/VeilArtistry .

My lifelong interest in art, design, apparel, and sewing evolved into a desire and passion to create bridal millinery and accessories. My own bridal experiences and that of friends convinced me that there was a void in the typical retail bridal market that could be filled with a more intimate, customer-centric design approach.

One of my brides shared an experience that expresses my philosophy: She commented that her married friend had counseled her to devote more time and attention to the selection of her bridal headwear. Her friend had not done so and only in hindsight realized that the veil and headpiece are more than just mere accessories...

* Surprisingly, the veil is often the one, single item of apparel that truly makes a bride feel like a bride! We may think the gown holds the key to feeling like a bride, but many brides will confess that only when they put on their veil did the bridal magic truly envelope them.

* She also realized that while the bridal gown is on display and admired at the wedding ceremony, later, in the photographs the gown's details are often lost and in many close-up photos, the gown is not shown at all. What is recorded for posterity and seen in all photos are the bride's radiant smile and shining eyes framed by a diaphanous veil and beautiful headpiece.

My hallmark is creating bridal veils and headpieces that are wearable works of art a that make every single bride feel far more beautiful on her wedding day and she's ever felt before!

About

Creating exquisite bridal veils, headpieces, and accessories

My passion for art, design, apparel, and sewing began as a child. I was drawing and taking art lessons by the age of 5 and started sewing doll clothes by the age of 9. I made my first formal dress, a lilac brocade gown, at the age of 14. The gown was selected as a winner in a local sewing contest and I became focused on a fashion career. I obtained a degree in Fashion Design from the University of Cincinnati and worked in the garment industry for 11 years as both a designer and patternmaker. Along the way, I also earned an MBA and moved into a marketing career gaining the business experience necessary to organize and operate my company.

My business is home-based -- I maintain a design and sewing studio in my home along with a photography set and my office. I am a one-woman operation! I do everything from design and production of each item ordered as well as customer service, billing, marketing, and shipping. I love the creativity and variety that this offers.

When I first began to plan my company, research showed me that many brides were dissatisfied with the veils and headpieces found in retail stores and wanted something unique and special that is all their own. As a result, I decided to focus my energies on the creation of heirloom quality veils and headpieces and formed my design studio. Initially offering only custom-designed and custom-made veils and headpieces on a consultation basis in central Ohio, I later expanded to the web to offer brides worldwide this same wide range of choices.

One bride's experience expresses the "Veil Artistry" philosophy. A bridal client recently commented that her married friend had counseled her to devote more time and attention to the selection of her bridal headwear. Her friend had not done so and only in hindsight realized that the veil and headpiece are more than just an accessory for the following reasons:

• Surprisingly, the veil is often the one, single item of apparel that truly makes a bride feel like a bride! We may think the gown holds the key to feeling like a bride, but many brides will confess that only when they put on their veil and headpiece did the bridal magic truly envelope them.

• The veil and the headpiece should complement the bride and her gown as well as balance the proportion of the gown. We are not accustomed to wearing millinery and we may feel uncomfortable about wearing it. However, the bridal gown is more dress both in terms of amount of fabric and ornamentation than we ever wear today. As a result, the wearer can easily get "lost" under all that dress that took so long to find and cost so much. Thus, more elaborate hair and a stunning headpiece with a beautiful veil will focus your guests' gaze on the your radiant smile.

• Finally, while the bridal gown is on display and admired at the wedding ceremony, later, in the photographs the gown's details are often lost and in many close-up photos, the gown is not shown at all. What is recorded for posterity and seen in all photos are your radiant smile and shining eyes framed by a diaphanous veil and beautiful headpiece.

I love working with each and every bride to create the perfect veil, headpiece, or other accessory that is uniquely hers and hers alone!

Orders shipped to Ohio addresses will be charged applicable state and county sales tax.

Orders may be cancelled within 72 hours of order placement. (Of course, orders for "Ready-to-Go", existing items typically ship within 1 business day of receipt of the order.)
Shipping
I can ship within the United States (including Alaska, Hawaii, and US territories) and internationally. Shipping/handling charges will be higher outside the continental USA. Shipping to these locations will be via USPS Priority Mail. Shipping within the continental USA depends on location and may be via UPS Ground or USPS Priority Mail. If you prefer a different shipping method, converse with me.

You will receive a tracking number to check the status of your shipment at www.UPS.com or www.USPS.com.

Orders for "Ready-To-Go" items are available and will ship promptly...generally within 1 business day of receipt of the order. 'Made-To-Order" items have to be produced. Shipping time will be communicated in an order confirmation sent in a conversation on Etsy.

Typically, "Made-To-Order" items are completed and ready to ship about 4-6 weeks after receipt of the order.

Veil Artistry is not responsible for packages once they have been handed over to the shipping service. Delays in shipping time frames and the shipping services' notifications that a package is available for pickup are outside the control of Veil Artistry.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS:
International packages are shipped via USPS Priority Mail International.

Please note that import duties/taxes will most likely be incurred on international shipments. These charges are the responsibility of the purchaser and are payable upon delivery.

International shipping disclaimer: Since Customs can hold a package for any length of time, I am not able to guarantee the delivery date. If in the unlikely event that Customs does hold your package past your wedding/departure date, I am not responsible and cannot accept a return or refund. Please be sure to order in advance of your wedding/departure date so that your veil can be completed and shipped well before you need it. I suggest ordering about 4 months prior to your "need-by" date.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be completely satisfied with your veil, headpiece, and/or bridal accessory!

If you are not totally satisfied with your purchase, I will attempt to resolve the problem. Or, your purchase can be returned within 7 days of receipt for a refund of 50% of the purchase price (less shipping/handling fees). Returns are not accepted after the wedding date. If the wedding date falls within 7 days after delivery of your order, that voids the 7-day return window.

Note: Authorization for a return is required. Please convo with me to obtain authorization. Refunds will not be processed if authorization for the return was not obtained prior to shipping.

The return must be postmarked within 7 days of receipt of your order. No refunds will be processed for items postmarked later than 7 days after delivery to you. This 7 day policy is strictly enforced even if your wedding is cancelled, your dress arrives in a different color, you change your mind, or for any other reason.

Items must be received in their original condition. Refunds cannot be processed for items that have been worn, soiled, or damaged. Items must be returned in their original packaging and the postmark/shipping date must be prior to your wedding date. Please insure your return shipment for loss or damage as we cannot provide a refund for items damaged or lost during shipping
