If you do not have a matching piece of tulle, take a piece from the underlying tulle layers of your dress. (pink bouquet back white wedding dress gown veil image by Paul Retherford from

Nothing can ruin a wedding day quite like a hole in your wedding dress or veil. If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of having a hole in your tulle veil, and you have some time to spare before the big day, you can easily fix the rip using invisible permanent adhesive. This adhesive can be found in most sewing stores and comes in a small bottle with a tiny applicator tip. It dries clear and can repair even delicate fabric like tulle.

Cut a piece of matching tulle that is slightly larger than the ripped area.

Poke a small hole in the bottle applicator tip with a paper clip. This will give you a small, precise line of glue.

Lay the veil on a flat piece of cardboard with the right side down.

Apply a thin layer of permanent liquid adhesive along the entire perimeter of the tear.

Place the spare piece of tulle on top, allowing the adhesive to bond the two pieces together. Let the veil sit and dry, being careful that it doesn't adhere to the cardboard.
