So my wedding is 2 months out and I really need to decide on a veil. I am wearing a drop cathedral veil with my Enzoani Gerry dress, but I can’t decide between english net vs. bridal illusion.
Here are my two choices:
Bridal Illusion: http://www.etsy.com/listing/60116296/ready-made-gorgeous-cathedral-drop?ref=usr_faveitems
English Net: http://www.etsy.com/listing/80632859/couture-bridal-or-wedding-veil-in-soft (but customized as a drop veil).
Does anyone have a strong opinion regarding English net? Is it worth the extra price? Did you feel like your bridal illusion wasn’t “flowy” enough?
Thanks so much for all your help!

@sunshinemegs: Okay, so I will admit, i have no idea what English net is but I just wanted to say that when all is said and done, I really don’t feel like anyone will be able to tell the difference. I say save the extra money and go with the bridal illusion!

here is my understanding of materials-according to the salon person who tried to sell me a veil explaining why they were so differently priced:
bridal illusion is a polyester blend fabric
english net is a cotton blend
silk tulle is just that-silk
you could feel the difference but I couldn’t really say they looked different- the last two felt softer- the silk seemed more flowy but was crazy expensive
if you just care what they look like in pictures bridal illusion is fine
