I haven’t purchased one yet, but I’m been stalking Etsy.  Just pay attention to seller feedback.

I purchased mine online from Occansey Designs, and I love it.  I got to customize everything (length, fullness, edge finish, etc.) according to my specifications, and the quality is just as good or better than the ones I tried at the bridal salon for triple the price.

One note: make sure you look through the testimonials, where they have photos of real brides in many of the different types of veils– I had initially assumed that I’d want a sheer fullness, just from reading the description.  However, I ended up getting extra full, as those were the pictures I was drawn to the most.  http://www.occanseydesigns.com/testimonials.html

If you’re nervous, I think veilshop.com offers returns on standard non-custom veils.

If you find something you like online, you can search Weddingbee to see if other Bees have reviewed the vendor.

I purchased a veil from http://www.weddingveil.com and it was HORRIBLE.  It was dirty and had burn marks.  When I called for a refund of the purchase price and shipping expenses, the woman actually threatened to sue me!  Horrible.

I wound up getting my veil from http://www.bloomingveils.com The women there was super polite, quick to reply to my inquiries, helpful with customizing the mantilla I wanted.  I like the final product and was overall very pleased with them.

So I would recommend search Weddingbee and other places online for vendor reviews to help you get an idea of whether or not the company delivers what they promise.

I have the same advice that’s already been given:
– etsy is terrific and you can definitely find some gorgeoous veils and other accesories

– pay attention to buyer feedback and other reviews

– ask for recommendations either on here or on other forums

– check the return policy before you buy, most places will let you return minus shipping charges (and for a veil they shouldn’t be much)
