I was super excited when I asked my grandma if I could use her veil for my wedding, and I was even more excited when I saw it was still in great condition. It's currently on a headband, so I thought the only thing I needed to do was convert it to a comb. (any tips on doing so would be appreciated).
Unfortunately, I pulled it out again today, and after looking at it more closely, I realized it has yellowed in the 60 years since it was last worn. It's a very simple, short, two-tier veil that she made with mother before her wedding. There are no extras on it (beading, etc), so I assume it should be fairly simple to clean, but I don't want to do it wrong for fear of ruining it.
It was originally white, and my dress is white, but I'm perfectly ok with it not coming out perfect as I'd much rather wear her veil even if it's not perfectly white than buy a new one that has no meaning to me.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
