Dyeing a Wedding Veil

I have a white wedding veil that I would like to dye a blush pink, but it has rhinestones on it. Will I ruin the stones if I dye it and what's the best dye to use on a veil?

Almost everybody states that wedding veils should not be dyed at home unless you are just experimenting and will be okay no matter the results.

Also, about the rhinestones, dye may not harm the stones but these are usually glued on and if you have to use hot water for the dye process, this may loosen the glue or if that does not happen, the glue may take more color than the veil and you will have a darker color under/around the stones than the rest of the veil.

  • The biggest reason given for not trying this is because most wedding veils are made with synthetic fabrics which do not dye well under any circumstances.
  • Of course, there are always exceptions and your veil may turn out beautifully - but - what if it does not? Will that be okay too?
  • The majority of people dying a wedding veil are just using a tea dye to change the veil from white to ivory.
  • If you know what kind of material your veil is made of then you may be able to find a dye that may work for that material.
  • Most veils do not have a tag with fabric contents but yours may have one so check that first.

  • I would suggest you take your veil to one of the large craft stores - Michael's or JoAnn's maybe - and ask for their help in choosing a dye.

You will not ruin the rhinestones. Rit is a good dye to use.

dont think you'd ruin the rhinestones if you dye it, though as someone noted they might fall out. More pertinently, even ifyou succeed in dying the veil uniformly, and the rhinestones do NOT fall off, they will not get dyed & remain white or clear, but the area where they are glued will become unevenly and more strongly dyed than the rest of the area
