I tried to make one but got frustrated when I realized my scissors weren’t sharp enough to cut the tulle cleanly and it was really really hard to get perfectly symmetrical lines.  Then I got frustrated when I couldn’t find nice soft tulle in the fabric stores around me.  Everything was super stiff and I couldn’t get the wrinkles out. I tried hanging it up in the shower and throwing it in the dryer on the lowest setting (which melted the tulle).

I ended up buying mine on ebay (corded edge, cathedral, single tier) for about $30.

The lady I bought from sent my veil really quickly and the craftsmanship was perfect!  I can tell it was handmade, but it was professionally done and priced right for me!

Here is my veil that I made. Since I posted it, I have changed the comb to lay differently, but you can get an idea of what you can do, if you plan to DIY yours.

You can do half way DIY, Michaels and JoAnns sell veils that you can decide to be-dazzle or not! =]
