Review:

Anyone who's ever gone shopping for wedding clothing knows how startlingly pricey veils are. With even the simplest bridal headpieces taking a hefty bite of the wedding budget, it only makes sense to make it yourself if possible. Fortunately, with the help of "I Do" Veils and the wonderful (and inexpensive) lace, veiling, silk flowers and pearls that are widely available, it can be a fun project and not an arduous task. There are tips for selecting the right headpiece style for your face, figure and dress (whether it's a simple barrette with bow or an ornate tiara with cathedral-length veil) ; illustrations to help you decide how elaborate you want your hat, veil, comb or clip to be; and hundreds of embellishment techniques involving nothing more complicated than a hot glue gun. The directions are easy to follow, and for those who don't have a good bridal section in their local fabric and notions store, the list of wholesale and retail mail-order suppliers will be invaluable.

From Library Journal:

Certainly if information on medieval European costume is sparse, there is even less on bridal millinery. Despite the cutesy title, this is a well-organized, practical manual that anyone making bridal headpieces will want to have at hand. Lynch makes extensive use of line drawings (more than 500) to guide the reader through every step in constructing veils, tiaras, wreaths, crowns, hats, headbands, Juliet Caps, and other bridal finery. An annotated wholesale and retail resource guide and information on care and preservation of the finished headpiece add greatly to the value of the book. Both public libraries and costume collections will want this work.
