About

August Veils has been a constant in the Portland bridal industry for many years. Founded in 1999 by Andrea, August Veils has helped many brides complete their wedding day look with the one thing that changes the feel of an elegant gown into a wedding gown… a veil. With so many trends over the years, August Veils has kept up with the needs and desires of Pacific Northwest brides, helping to create both modern and timeless custom pieces to suit each brides’ personality and style.

At August Veils we specialize not only in creating new veils and headpieces, but also in updating a treasured heirloom and giving it new life, while maintaining the history and connection that each item carries. August Veils has seen everything from a 100 year old gown being turned into a veil, to using pieces of a 1980’s headpiece as hair pins to compliment a more boho style, to simply placing heirloom lace on a new veil. There are so many amazing ways to bring that connection into a current wedding day, and keep those loved ones close.

Current owner and lead designer, Bethany, has been in the bridal industry since 2010. Starting out as a bridal stylist at a local salon, she fell in love with the magic of weddings, and how the right accessory can complete a bridal style. She began working for Andrea in 2017 and learned all she could about creating beautiful veils and headpieces to complete any bride’s look. When Andrea decided to retire in 2021, Bethany was honored to take over August Veils and to continue her legacy.

    Amazing!!!

    Andrea is amazing! She is very professional and has a great eye for alterations. She made me look and feel great in my wedding dress. There's no one else I would have trusted with such an important task! She also made me a beautiful veil. I would highly recommend August Veils to others.

    Andrea does amazing work!

    I can't say enough good things about Andrea. Right from the beginning I felt very comfortable with her, and confident that my dress would turn out beautifully. She is very responsive and easy to make appointments with. And not only does she do beautiful work but she's hilarious! I truly enjoyed my appointments with her. A lot of wedding planning can be stressful, but getting your dress altered with Andrea won't be! She may cost more than other seamstresses but she was worth every penny!

    There is a reason why Andrea is so highly rated. She is a WIZARD and can make even a funny lumpy body look rocking in a perfectly fitted dress. She even made me a specialized belt with the seed pearls she was able to take off my mother's wedding veil headpiece..... such a special touch that my mom and I will always treasure together! BOOK HER EARLY, her summer schedule fills up completely WAY ahead of time, so I would pretty much recommend setting up a fitting schedule with her as soon as you set your wedding date (don't waste time dress shopping first!). I was a little stressed about her timeline, having heard so many stories about how loooooong alterations would take, but she was confident and completely correct on getting my dress done with plenty of time and no need for re-dos. Her prices are COMPLETELY reasonable, as well. As an added bonus, she's super personable, friendly, and funny so it was easy to hang out with her during the fittings! I'm thrilled with how my dress turned out-- HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
