This listing is for Veil Fabric qualities. please purchase if you would like to see all the tulle swatches available before purchasing a veil.
You will receive up to 4 swatches per card of available tulle & netting for all of our veils.
How To Match the Tulle/Netting Colour to Your GownWe will send you a fairly large stack of each colour for your review (about 10-15 layers). Take the swatches off the card, 3-4 layers per colour for a Gathered Comb Veil and 1-2 Layers for a Single Layer Non Gathered Comb Veil and hold it against your gown in natural day light (not direct sunlight) to see the true colour of your gown and the tulle. For Juliet Cap Veils, Draped Veils etc use 3-4 layers to get the true colour against your gown.If your gown glows a blueish bright white tone in daylight then choose the pure white. If it's white, but softer and doesn't shine blue, chose off white, if it is warmer and a tinge creamy and yellow in tone then go with the Ivory. The ivory looks quite yellow when seen as a stack, but that is about 10-15 layers of fabric so it's much more concentrated then when paired and worn with a gown.Rule of Thumb of colour standards based on Designer Dress Colour Names
**Please note that due to the natural dying process of fabrics, your swatch fabric might have slight variances in shade to your veil fabric. This is beyond our control and industry tolerance is 10% variance**
