Sisters Susan and Valerie started Artistic Veil Design Studio in order to provide the highest quality hand-sewn couture bridal veils available. They have since expanded to include hair ornaments, evening wraps and jewelry. Swarovski crystals & rhinestones, freshwater pearls and 100% silk double faced satin ribbon and thread embellish the finest quality bridal illusion, Russian and French veiling available.

Susan, the primary designer, has a degree in Fashion Design with a concentration in Bridal Fashion and has been making and altering bridal gowns and accessories for years.

Valerie, who is also the author of children’s books, is the business end of the team and manages to do some designing of her own. The studio where they brainstorm their designs is in Port Charlotte, Florida.

They enjoy their creative freedom with designs from the traditional to the modern bubble and birdcage styles. Any design challenge is gladly accepted. The fun and joy of working together is reflected in the quality and style of the veils they produce. Read less

Susan was truly a fairy godmother sent to me a few weeks before my wedding! I had ordered a veil through a bridal salon and was informed that there was plenty of time for my veil to be ordered prior to my wedding when I went in for my second fitting. However, after placing the order, the bridal salon called and said that the designer could no longer make the veil in time. I was completely panicked and began frantically searching for another veil that was similar to the one I had picked out. I then came across a headpiece/veil show that was happening that same weekend. I met with Susan and explained the whole situation about the disaster with my previous veil. Without a second thought, Susan said that she would be able to custom make me a veil for my wedding day. I couldn’t believe that she was willing to make me something all for my own when only a few hours earlier I thought I wasn’t going to have a veil at all. The veil that Susan created for me was absolutely stunning and even more beautiful than anything I had pictured myself in. This veil was absolutely gorgeous and I know it is something very special that I will be able to pass down as a family heirloom to my children. Even though I could thank her 1 million times, it still would not be enough to show my eternal gratitude for her help.

Susan was a joy to work with and her work is AMAZING. I wasn't the easiest bride to work with, but she patiently worked with me to help me find the veils of my dreams. We bounced some ideas off each other and she custom made the most beautiful veils I've ever seen. They were mine so I might be a bit biased, but I had a ton of compliments on them :)

Her work is amazing, Susan is amazing, and the whole experience was so much fun. I can't say enough about Artistic Veil Design Studio!

In summary: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Susan is a wonderful, creative and professional vendor. I chose to wear my veil throughout my special day and I could not have done that without the help of one of Susan's veil bustlers.

My veil was cathedral length, so I needed a way to pull up the length without losing the effect. The bustler Susan made for me was custom for me and so beautiful. In fact, the way that it works, I'm able to wear it now any time I want because she utilizes special magnets.

My bustler is truly a work of art. I have pictures attached. They're not quite as good as if I attached the bustler but you get the general idea.

I recommend that if you do choose a longer veil that you purchase 2 bustlers, this way you know for certain that your veil will stay put. I received a lot of hugs and after being pulled on, the bustler did work well but I had to rearrange a bit. If I had two, that wouldn't have happened.

Thanks again Susan! You helped make my very special day even moreso.

Artistic Veil Design Studio, LLC responded with the following comments:

Heidi - Thank you so much for your wonderful review! I was upset that your Bustler didn't hold through all the hugs you received and that put me on a mission. I just had to let you know that because of your honest review I checked with my supplier and found out that they now make an even stronger magnet. I need to order magnets so I am happy that you let me know that you had less than perfect results. Thanks again and Best Wishes - Susan

I found Artistic Veil through weddingwire when I was looking for the perfect veil. Susan worked with me to create a beautiful piece that was unique and one of a kind. Through her great communication and patience we corked mostly through email/photos. She was a pleasure to work with throughout the process providing detailed information, pictures, assistance and advice. Even when we had to make some adjustments, she was ready and willing all with a smile. She cares about her brides and wants them to have amazing pieces for their special day. I could tell in her craftsmanship how much pride she takes in each piece (not to mention the beautiful package it arrives in when she sends it to you). I loved my veil and would highly recommend Artistic Veil to any bride looking for a special veil for their special day. She was a dream to work with and made sure I was completely happy with my veil.

I first spoke to susan on the phone in june and had my fist fitting ith her on june 17th. I took a wedding dress to her. She had quite a bit of work to do on it and she did a excellent job. My bridesmaid's also took their dresses to her for alterations and she also did some alterations on a formal for me. She was great to work with and we loved the her work.

Susan was amazing. She's my groom's cousin and wanted to provide the veil as a gift. Any time I emailed her, she got right back to me. She had a wedding to go to and just told me she'd be out of town and semi-away, and yet, she still emailed me a time or two. She told me to pick whatever I want from the website and we'd go from there. Susan was very informative about the two veils I picked and then helped me pick the one that would work best for me. Oh, and the one I picked was a couple inches too long, so she shortened it. She always asked my opinion, and was ready to add on whenever I wanted something. In fact, she only asked for a piece of my gown and a couple close-up pictures of my beading. She sent me a couple samples of tulle and ribbon so I could choose exactly what I wanted. With me being in Tennessee and her in Florida, all she had to work with were pictures. The veil arrived at the groom's parents' house the week of the wedding and it could not have matched my dress more perfectly had she had the dress next to her. The wavy lines of my beading trimmed the veil and inside were the beaded flowers. It was perfect!

Susan was amazing in the detailed work she did for my alterations for my gown. She made sure that the bridal party knew how to attach the bustle perfectly. Susan takes great pride in her work and it shows. (She is also fun to work with). I also ordered a hair accessory from her. She took the time to listen to what i was looking for and designed a beautiful hair comb that went with our theme. I can not thank her enough.

After shopping locally and not finding the quality I was seeking I went online. Artistic Veil by far had the best selection of unique veils and the quality is unmatched. I was thrilled to see that the actual product was even prettier in person than the picture on the website had been able to portray. This veil was purchased to begin an heirloom tradition for my daughter, granddaughters, and was
also used by my daughter-in-law when she and my son had their wedding blessed two days after mine. It is truly heirloom worthy and I cannot recommend them highly enough.

I could not have found a better veil ANYWHERE! I went into the studio and tried on about 20 different styles before choosing the "Sarah". I then sat down with Susan and we designed my very own custom veil. I am getting married on the beach so we figured out a way to incorporate tiny seashells into the veil. The veil turned out exactly as I pictured it would! Susan and Valerie use high quality materials and their natural creativity to make extraordinary pieces. No matter what style wedding you're planning, they have something to fit your taste. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a unique, one of a kind veil or headpiece to complete their perfect wedding look.
