FYI - Any of our beautiful veil styles can also be created as a cape veil!
Message us for more info - We love capes!

We have swatches available in sets of 3 or 4 colors. Choose from traditional tones of whites, ivories, champagne and grey. We also have blush and pink pastel tones shades of blue and custom options. Feel free to mix and match for your custom color palette.

3. How far in advance should I order my veil?

It depends on the item. All of the veils are handmade to order. Such attention to detail takes time, so it is important that you contact us as far as possible in advance of your wedding date to give me time to create the veil of your dreams.
For classic cut-edge veils 2-3 weeks is usually enough time.
For more elaborate lace-edged veils about 12-14 weeks. Production times are labeled on each veil listing.

4. What does 'made to order" mean?

'Made to order" means that I will start making a design once an order is received.
As all of my designs are made entirely by hand and just by me, my production time
can vary depending on the style ordered. Details of expected production time are
detailed on each product listing. But, if you have any questions or need an item
urgently, please contact me before placing your order. A rush fee may apply.

5. What's the difference between Bridal Illusion Tulle & English Net?
Tulle / Bridal Illusion is the most popular veil material.
The illusion tulle that is made in the USA is the best quality. Tulle is semi-transparent and weightless. It is the sheerest option and will allow all the lovely details of your gown design will show through.

6. What is English Net?

English Net is soft and delicate to the touch and has a dreamy, ethereal quality.
The texture is thicker and more opaque than tulle. It's quite lovely for a single layer mantilla or Juliet cap. English Net hangs close to the body and has a more drapey effect compared to tulle which floats around the body like a cloud. A blusher of English Net falls very close to the face and clings to the body.

7. What are the traditional veil lengths?

22" - Shoulder Length
30” - Elbow Length
36” - Hip Length
42” - Fingertip Length
54” - Waltz Length
65” - Ballet Length
75”- Floor Length
90”- Chapel Length
108” - Cathedral Length (Most Popular)
125”- Royal Cathedral Length
144”- Coronation Length

8. Do you have a shop or studio I can visit?

I am located in Studio City/ Los Angeles, California.
You are more than welcome to make an appointment to visit my studio. I have a small working studio, it's a lovely, intimate space where you can try on as many pieces as you'd like as well as have a chat about your ideas and requirements – feel free to bring your gown to try on with all the veils and headpieces. We can talk about your inspiration and work on a design together.
To book an appointment, please email: julieharrisdesigns [!at] gmail.com

9. How do I measure myself for a custom-length veil?

It’s super easy if you happen to have a tape measure. But if you don’t- No Worries
!Take a long string or piece of yarn and place it on your head at the desired comb position. From there drape the string down to your desired length and mark the end. Then measure the string on a ruler or yardstick.
*For a longer veil, it may be easier for you to pre-measure the string to 108 inches for example, and see how much you like the length Then you can visualize how far beyond the gown train you'd like your veil to go. You can always shorten the sting or add a bit of extra length.

10. What is a blusher?

The blusher is the shorter layer on the veil designed to be worn over the face as you walk down the aisle for the traditional lifting of the veil! Think of the look of Meghan Markle's gorgeous veil.

11. What is a drop veil?

A drop veil is a single piece of tulle cut in the shape of a circle or oval. The comb or veil pins are attached about 30 or more inches back from the edge so the shorter front portion ‘drops’ over the face creating a blusher.
Drop veils can be stitched onto a comb or pinned into place
with veil pins and lay flat on top of your head with no gathering.
For a sleek no "gather at the comb" look think Princess Kate's veil.

12. What does "gathering “ mean?
Many veil styles have tulle that is gathered or shirred together to create a small amount of pouf at the top where it is attached at the comb. The gathering adds volume, body and sometimes if there is a lot of gathering it adds a bit of height.

13. Do Your Veils Have Combs?

Whether gathered or not, all of our veils come attached to tulle-wrapped metal combs. If you prefer to attach your veil with our veil pins please specify at the time of purchase and we will enclose a pair of veil pins in your choice of silver or gold.
When slipping the comb into your hair always be sure the comb teeth are pointing downwards and the label is on the underside touching the hair.
If you have very fine hair- you may wish to have your hairstylist use extra bobby pins to secure the comb and prevent slippage.

14. Should I iron my veil after it arrives?

Definitely not!
Please use the enclosed veil clip to hang your beautiful veil and allow any creases to fall out naturally. This will take a few hours. Handle your veil gently, it is very delicate. Do not crumple, crush, or jam your beautiful veil into a bag or box. Please fold it carefully back into the shipping box or fold it over a hanger. Do not clip directly onto the delicate tulle. The veil may be steamed either professionally or with a handheld steamer.

15. I'm still not quite sure what I want or what might suit me?

Don't worry if you don't know exactly what you're after - choosing a veil and bridal hair accessories is probably new to you. With so many different types of accessories to chose from it can be overwhelming.
We can start by having a chat over the phone or by email to talk about things.
You can tell me about your gown, venue, and what influences you'd like to incorporate into your wedding vibe – Old Hollywood, Forest Wonderland, or Tropical Beach Bash for example, and we'll go from there.
We want your bridal veil experience to be fun, easy, and stress free!

"This is an amazing place. She has a big selection and a beautiful space. Julie is the sweetest woman and she will patiently work with you to find the perfect veil! Save yourself from the hustle and bustle of a bigger store and set an appointment here! Plenty of parking too!
- Kat A.

" After some research, I came across Julie's Etsy shop. Her prices were half of what was available in bridal stores! She also had a large variety of wedding accessories to choose from. Her availability and professionalism made it a no-brainer for me. I am so excited to wear this veil at my upcoming nuptials!"

Julie Harris Designs helps stylish brides-to-be with classic, romantic and whimsical bridal veils and accessories.
The veil creates the magic! We carry veils, headpieces, and accessories, both new and vintage for the bride and bridal party.

Shortly after finishing design school at FIDM I created a bridal veil for a friend. From that first wedding I got three more clients! I took it as a sign from the universe and so my bridal veil business began. I later went on to create bridal veils for Nicole Miller Bridal Boutique in West Hollywood and J.Crew Bridal at The Grove in Los Angeles.

With over 20 years of experience - specializing in authentic French lace and custom designs- Julie Harris Designs brings your bridal veil vision to life!
I enjoy every aspect of my bridal veil business- the feel of a fine quality fabric, the delicate strength of a French re-embroidered lace, or the timeless sparkle of a unique vintage jewelry piece that evokes the glamour of another era.
It is an honor to be entrusted with creating a special piece to be worn on one of the most memorable days of a woman's life.
