@codysgirl16:  I did a Google Image search and can’t find more than someone saying it came from TheSariCladBride.com, which looks like a scam website if I’ve ever seen one…

 

But this is a mantilla style veil, VERY DETAILED, so it’s going to be VERY Expensive. Seach “mantilla’ on WB and you’ll get a better idea of what they look like and cost.

If I were you, I’d look for a local bridal fabric store and see if there is any similar lace you like and just make your own. It’ll be tedious and require a lot of hand sewing, but it will be much, much cheaper (tulle is dirt cheap, so the cost depends on the lace you choose).

@codysgirl16:  Yes its hard to tell exactly but I do think there are some sort of hints of gold in the embroidered detail. Try searching ETSY. That is where I found that one. I think I types in couture veils. Good luck!

@codysgirl16:  I’m not sure how to begin, the internet I guess? I’m going to make my own veil, but I don’t have to start it quite yet (although I already bought all of the lace I want to use).

From what I saw at the bridal fabric store in my city (they don’t even know what they have in inventory b/c it’s run by an old jewish lady with thousands of different fabrics and trims) you just start looking for something you like. There seems to be a couple of options: some of the alencon and chantilly lace was 18″ wide and had the same pattern down both sides (so you could get twice the lace), what you would do here is carefully cut around the innermost pieces and sew it onto tulle so that the finished edge (the one that was manufactured on the edge) is the edge of your veil. The other option is to fine venice lace (which is what I’m using), it’s chunkier and you can buy it kind of like you would ribbon, then you would sew it on.

Maybe you could find a lace you like, and buy it and the tulle and find some old lady who you could pay to sew it together? I know my dress and veil is going to be a lot of work (I have a family friend making the dress, but I want to help hand sew all of the lace on), but I also have a lot of time.

@codysgirl16:  I did a reverse look up and saw that this veil popped up in another discussion in the bee a few years ago

I think this is an older veil. If it was discussed back in 09 on the bee then it might havve been produced back in 08 is my guess. You can research that thread and possbily see if you can get any info that might help you.

 

I have a feeling it will be very hard for you to find this exact veil thou but good luck on your search!

Etsy is a good place to look for veils and lace.

If you decide to go the DIY route, I really liked some of the lace that this seller had:

And if you just try and find a veil, I would just mix up a bunch of keywords (venice, alencon, veil, gold, mantilla, etc.) in the hopes that you eventually find something similar.
