For me, the veil was more important than the dress.  Though I didn’t get the veil I wanted, I still got something similar to what I wanted.  I got the look just not the fabric.  When my veilmaker couldn’t get the shipment of fabric that I wanted I cried more about that than anything else that went wrong with our wedding (and alot went wrong).  I have to still give it up to my original veilmaker, she knew how important it was to me and went to great lengths to try to get me my veil.  In the end, I made mine for $2 worth of tulle and I think that it was one of the prettiest parts of my whole attire.

haha clearly mine wasn’t very important – I completely forgot about it until seconds before I walked down the aisle. My dad ran to get it and put it on me. As soon as the ceremony ended, a friend hugged me and accidentaly ripped it off. Thus, I wore the thing for about 20 mins total?

I loved my veil, though, and really wish I’d remembered it and gotten pics (we took all our pictures before the ceremony, thus before I remembered to put on my veil)

My veil is important to me. I get married in two months and made sure that my veil is perfect. It compliments your wedding dress so it has to be just right, but not taking anything away from the dress at the same time.

My veil was very important to me, in fact I wore 2 veils to give me extra volume & oomph I wanted. I wore it during ceremony and the reception. I took the long one off because I was getting tangled but figured this was my one chance to rock my veils!

I don’t have a picture with me in it but it’s a fingertip length veil with crystal and pearl flower accents (similar to the picture below).  Honestly, it wasn’t that important to me and I really tried to find the cheapest one I could that would look nice with my dress.  Luckily I found one that was on clearance (75% off) and then it was the last one of a discontinued style so I got an additional discount and it ended up only being $19.00 original price was like $120.

@pyma: I had no plans to wear a veil either and my Mother-In-Law keep saying it was my one chance to wear one, so I did the same thing you did…bought one and decided the day of!  Ultimately, I didn’t wear it!  I am so glad I went with my gut on that one and didn’t get swayed. 

Here is me on my wedding day, WITHOUT the veil!

I borrowed my veil from my cousin. It worked out well because it matched the dress perfectly, but I wasn’t too concerned about a veil anyway. If it hadn’t looked good, I just wouldn’t have worn one. Veils can be crazy expensive (especially when you consider it’s just a peice of tool and a comb). If your Mother-In-Law is willing to make you one and she has some experience I’d say give it a shot! It could save you some money and it would be special for both of you.

For me? VERY important. I liked my veil more than I liked my dress (and I wasn’t even sure I wanted one when I started shopping). I’m probably going to sell my dress but I cannot bring myself to sell my veil.

I totally didn’t think I’d be a veil person, much less a cathedral with a blusher…but I loved mine.  It was probably my favorite thing about my outfit…except my shoes.  And with veils you get all kinds of pretty pics…

but because it was long I put in a hair flower for the reception, but I wished I could have kept my veil on

Not important to me. I said I wasn’t going to wear one, but then when I was trying dresses on, I felt they completed the look and made me feel more bridal. I’m going to wear it for the ceremony and pictures, but then it’s coming off so I don’t have to worry about it getting in my way.

@luvmyDwight: A scalloped edge is definitely harder. Can you ask to see pics of the other veils she made? A simple veil to me does not have much more other than tulle. Those are relatively easy to make.

Or can you try a few on at a bridal shop to get an idea of what you like, and then see if she can make what you are thinking of?
