I ordered mine on Ebay–Venus Veils for $35. It has swarovskies on the edges, is 2-layered, and is a waltz length. I’m only wearing it for the ceremony and didn’t want to spend a ton of money on something i’m mostly wearing b/c my mom feels i HAVE TO have a veil. HAVE to. I don’t care personally.

 Mine turned out fine. I think tulle is tulle….but i wanted a basic veil, not a really elaborate mantilla veil or anything. The one i tried on in the store was $550 and i thought that was so absurd. Cost more than my dress, lol!

I also got my veil from eBay and paid $15.99 for a cathedral length. It was an awesome deal and if I decide to get my dress in white instead of ivory, I can just get a different veil (or just wear the ivory one, I don’t think it’ll matter).

$20 birdcage veil on etsy.com

It is perfect. I’m confirming this shortly when I meet with my stylist to make sure we are set. If not, I’ll probably order another one that is 3 inches longer

I was aghast after seeing how costly the ones in regular bridal stores can run, so I ordered mine from Etsy – Bella Bridal Veils.  It cost less than $25, and the quality is great.

I got mine on Ebay. 25$ for a 3 tier cathedral length veil with rattail trim (I think thats what the call the corded edge?)  Anyway it took forever to arrive but it is great.  The two shorter layers fall about fingertip and elbow.  What I really like is that all the layers attach to the same comb so it is easy but I can remove the cathedral length layer so if I just want the two shorter ones I can do that too.

I plan on adding some crystals and pearls to it myself (its super easy-just a bit tedious) to dress it up.

There is no reason to pay the uber high boutique prices!

I got mine from DonnaElla on Etsy. I am so glad I did. It was only $25 for a bandeau style veil and I can wear it in 3 different styles. I figure I’ll wear it over my face for the ceremony and then bring it up over my hair and eyes only for some unique pictures.

I also got mine from venus veils. It shipped very quickly the the transaction was effortless. However, the actual veil was very true to the picture which I wasn’t counting on. I liked the side and back view, but I really wanted something more understated than it appeared in the frontal picutre. After looking at several others that had a similar look, I figured I would go ahead and try it. 

I wanted something very simple, and I’ve seen the ones from Michaels before and loved it. However, the one I got from venus veils was a little poofy on top for my taste, and I ended up hating it. I was hoping for more of a chiffon like/softer tulle and it was more of a denser tulle/netting. For my personal taste, I was really disappointed. For others who might be looking for something more, you may love it. I’m going to probably try to run to Michaels because I’m a little afraid to try ordering another one. I don’t want to do a veil at bridal store prices, but I do want to find something simpler for my taste.

@ejs4y8:  This is so helpful! Venus veils is exactly what I’m looking for–everything looks perfectly nice but somehow not hundreds of dollars for some pieces of tulle and plastic beads! Thank you!

@arabesque0128:  Were you able to return the veil you didn’t like? I figure for the $25-$35 Venus charges, it’s worth the risk that the veil doesn’t work out

Yep, I paid $15 for the same one that was $90 in the bridal shop.  It actually was BETTER than the expensive duplicate.

I ordered mine for weddingshoppeinc.com. It took FOREVER to get in. I was a nervous wreck waiting for it. I spent $84 on a Bel Aire Bridal V7057. It looked like it was going to be perfect for my dress- and once it finally arrived, it WAS! Cons: 1) I ordered it in March, I didn’t recieve it until the end of may. 2) Worrying about a veil in ivory vs. a dress in ivory (I hated buying it without seeing it first to compare the colors. I was so afraid it was going to be too yellow-looking). 3) It arrived in a ho-hum paper padded envelope. One slip up at the post office and a mailing machine could have torn it in two! 4) There were nearly NO pictures of it on a real bride. Again- shopping blind, bad idea. Pros: It did finally arrive and it was perfect. A true bargain….but still, a head ache.
