The Emma Veil - Silk Veils
The Emma Veil is made from silk tulle, it is the most luxurious of all the veils.
Here is a video explaining the difference between the soft and the firm silks. click here
The silk tulle comes in two types, the firm silk and the soft silk, examples are shown below of real brides wearing both these silks. These now come in the a pale ivory, and white.
It is not as wide as "Normal" tulle - it is 70" approx.- so you cant have a very "big" veil in silk.
There are phtotos of the difference between the silks- further down the page.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE SOFT SILK AND THE FIRM SILK
see this video This shows the differences.
The difference between the firm and soft silks- are in that the firm silk has structure and keeps its shape, - it behaves exactly like the nylon tulle- whereas the soft silk is very soft, drapey and stretchy. It stretches out but then also comes back in on itself. It drapes down and with movement can almost come together into a much slimmer veil. It will not keep its shape and structure . It wont stay out on your shoulders- even the shorter veils.
I have taken phtotos to give you examples of two long silk single layer veils- they are exactly the same lengths and widths.
Then below them are two real brides photos of shorter silk veils of similar lengths.

The firmer tulle veil can come with all the same edges as the other veils on the site, but the soft silk can only have the cut edge as it puckers when sewn. All the silk tulles can also be adorned with Swarovski crystals.
For the costs of these veils, please see the Prices Page.
