I used an online service and had it custom made so I can dictate the details and length. The prices were reasonable and the veil looked nice. http://www.occanseydesigns.com/

I’m a huge proponent of making your own veil! I’ve made three so far just to try different styles and have options and each has cost me $3 or less. There are lots of great tutorials if you search for them : ) Since you just want a simple cut edge  veil it shouldn’t be too hard at all.

If you don’t feel like making one I’d say look on Etsy. If you do a search for “cut edge veil” there a lot of various styles for under $100.

Either way good luck and your dress is gorgeous!

Try going back to the salon where you bought the dress. Put the sample back on and see what looks good. Then you can either buy there, buy somewhere else or make your own.

@langloiswedding2013:  Haha I’m sure they would! The people at the fabric store might help you too which might be free : ) It’s really easy though, you cut the corners so they’re rounded. If you’re worried you could always get a test peice of tulle and see how it goes. 2ish yards cost about $2 for me and that made my full floor length veils so just a test peice would be less than a dollar.

@langloiswedding2013:  Definitely try making it! Tulle so cheap… well, nylon tulle. Silk tulle is crazy expensive and I was so nervous cutting into mine. Plus the time consuming part on the 4 that I’ve made (mine, my sister’s, and two friends) is the edging (I’ve done corded and lace), so it should take no time at all to make a raw edge one. Plus if you mess up, it’s almost no time and almost no money lost!

@langloiswedding2013:  Good luck! Let us know how it turns out! I’d suggest starting long, you can just keep cutting it down till you like how it looks : )

Etsy has good deals.  Or if you have any friends or family that are decent seamstresses, they could make one for you.

Make it, Etsy or Ebay.  My sister got her veil for like $20 off of Ebay (8 years ago…but I bet you could easily find something for less than $30 today).
