Cut edge veils can also be DIY veils, just add your own edge or embellishments.

It is the smallest edge finish available (approx. 1/16") that is commonly referred to as a fine embroidered edge.

The prominent style produces an abundance of curls. This is a unique edge finish for wedding veils that creates a wave or “ripple” on the edge of the veil. Thread is bound around a clear line that creates the wave. Therefore, this edge can be created in any color that a pencil edge can be created in.
A scallop edge can look quite stunning on a veil. These wedding veils have a cloud effect, as the scallops are formed by gathering up the edge at regular intervals. It works best on bridal illusion or glimmer illusion veils. This edge tends to work well by either leaving it plain or by adding a fine, pencil machine stitch. The lighter edgings work better on the scallops as something heavier will have the tendency to turn under. A veil’s edge is usually cut straight or on a slight curve.

This is a unique edge type that is delicate and adds just a bit of shape to a cut edge veil.
