Can I iron my veil?

My veil is very creased, I've got it hanging up in hope that some of them will drop out but do you think I can iron it?

    Could you put it under a towel and iron the towel. I definately wouldnt put the iron directly onto the veil.

  • Have you tried hanging it up in the bathroom while you have a shower, I recently did this with mine and it seemed to work although mine hasn't got many creases x
  • Agree with both of the above!!!  Try the bathroom first and any remaining crease use an iron over a damp towel.  Please don't put the iron directly on the veil!

    Welcome guy and nice to meet you

  • My bridal shop has told me not to hang it in a steamy room as it can remove the stifness of the veil and make it a bit floppy and that it should just be hung up and the creases will come out? x

  • Use a steamer - just keep well back from it and it works a treat! I wouldn't dare iron mine, I am always burning stuff!!

    I ironed mine. Lowest heat straight onto real silk tulle. It worked perfectly and didn't cause any harm at all. I did test it on spare tulle (made the veil diy so had tulle left over)

    I was of course very very careful but I've been ironing chiffon, silk and tulle dresses for years image
