Vintage Wedding Veils


I love vintage wedding gowns and veils


So imagine this heart stopping moment.... A few weeks ago I went to a Girlie, girl, Estate Sale and as I was checking out with tons of vintage slips and clothes 


There.... Right by the cashier, was a pile of vintage wedding veils.   Ah...Ah..."Are those veils for sale"?  "Yes, they are"!   "I'll take them all"!  The price was so great that I got in my car and sped away before the estate sale police got me! 


This one has a beaded headband with a gorgeous lace trim




There is an elastic headband on this one with little flowers on the side.  



When I showed it to my Mom she said 
"It's not exactly my style" lol.... I agree!


This was a straw like cap with vintage flowers


I love this beaded cap..1940's?




Oh, the stories they could tell

But WAIT, this story is not over!  Three special blogging friends are also showing off there vintage wedding veils


You can never see to many veils.  So, please stop by, say hi and make a new friend.

Happy Creating!

I well know the feeling of making a quick getaway in case someone realizes what they just let go for a song! I'd love to hear the stories those veils could tell.

I would have snapped them up and ran off straight away too !
Don't you just love it when you find something truly amazing and it makes you want to go off and stash it somewhere safe while you sit there smugly feeling so proud of yourself ! lol
Enjoy your new pretties Carol

Lovely-each and every one. How fortunate you were there to save these beauties. I was in a local antique shop this weekend and saw some vintage hats and thought of you. Our local prices are very high so I wasn't tempted. Wonderful week ahead...

pipigirl said...

Laurie Ann DeBruin said...

Exciting to find them, good find! This reminds me of my wedding dress score at an estate sale, it was found in a trunk! Come by our blog and see, we'd be honored if you did! It's called "it's in the trunk" www.foreverboundart.wordpress.com.
Thanks for the fun!

Wow. What a great find! I love the ways you have them displayed. So fun to find a great deal like that...the type that makes you want to get out quick, before they discover they made a mistake! But, they have no idea what treasures these are. So, I feel like it's meant to be....someone that will cherish them, like you, SHOULD have them!

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

It was your lucky day. These are gorgeous! I would have made a quick dash out of there also:-)

Sherry said...

Beautiful veils! I have my 1970's veil stuffed in my cedar chest, I will have to think of a way to use it.

Denise said...

Oh you lucky girl you! Finds like that are few and far between! I really love the pink one. My mother wore a pink wedding gown and it was so beautiful. thanks for sharing.

Rhissanna said...

Oh, lovely veils. I like the frilly one with the peach buds, it looks 1920's. The white cap with the points is very similar to the wedding cap my mother wore. Hers had lots of diamante as well as pearls, and she said it cost more than her wedding dress. She was married in the 1950's.
