Since it’s really so easy to make veils, I decided to put together a source list for people who wanted to make their own. I’m making mine out of silk tulle and Alencon lace, but I’ve put sources here that run the gamut of budgets. I’ve also ordered from many of these stores before, or have heard good reviews of them.
I hope this helps someone!
I Do Veils – reference book
Veiled in Beauty – reference book
Lacis.com – tulle and cotton netting also found here
Britex – in San Francisco, also lace
Fisherman’s Fabrics – cotton netting, silk tulle
Fabric.com – nylon bridal illusion
HouseFabric – Alencon and Chantilly laces, some beaded laces
Vogue Fabrics – Alencon laces
Deb’s Lace & Trims – cheaper laces
Lace Heaven – cheaper laces
Fire Mountain Gems
MJ Trim – also lace, but I think of this more as a trim and bead store

This is fantastic. I was going to make my own veil b/c the type of veil I want really doesn’t exist. I intend (with the help of the family friend who is making my dress) to make a red riding hood-esque cloak out of tulle and lace instead of a traditional veil. It helps that I’m getting married at a “castle” (Colorado isn’t really know for it’s castles) so everything will have an old-world/LOTR vibe.

@NikiJimenezPalacio: You’re Welcome!
@FionnaCake: Thanks! Good luck with your project; it sounds lovely!
@mspurple: You’re welcome!
@vorpalette: Very cool! Britex has Russian Net for birdcage veils also, and may possibly have some millinary supplies. I think Vogue Fashion Fabrics may have millinary buckram also.
