Veil Dyeing

veilI have purchased some organza beaded material with lace on it for my daughter’s bridal veil. However, when I got it the ivory/ivory looks white. They told me that I had to double or triple it to get the bridal ivory color. This will make the veil to heavy. Can I dye this material ivory? What type of dye would I use? Thank you Mary

Hi Mary,
please read my article on Fabric Dyeing 101. This will give you the basic info as to if dyeing is possible. Here is the link:

Did you try the fabric with the dress and observe the effects in different light, across the room, etc? Sometimes the only answer is to try it in many situations. If they sold it as ivory, it will probably look ivory under the lights.
many blessings to the wedding,
Jennifer
