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.

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.Sent on 06/16/2014

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 :)Sent on 06/30/2010
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!

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.Sent on 11/23/2009
