Inspiration: Embroidered Wedding Veil


Whether you love her or hate her, Angelina Jolie certainly shakes things up and her wedding veil is no exception. Set against a beautiful white dress is a veil colored with children’s words and pictures. Not wanting to exclude her children in such a memorable event, she asked her six children to draw images and the designer embroidered them onto the veil. While others would say that she ruined her dress, I give her kudos for still having a bit of rebellion and including her entire family in the day. What do you think? Have you ever stitched up something like this?

    I feel Angelina made a wonderful decision on her veil….having including her children…..thats what you call a mother. I once made a dress for my mother and she wore it to a school function, oh I felt so happy seeing my mother walk in the room; she accented with accessories and she looked pretty. So I know the children of Angelina & Brad were tickled to see their drawings for everyone to see. As my Dad said “you can be different, make it your way. You don’t have to do what other people do.”
