My dress is heavily beaded on the bodice and it continues on into the skirt and I plan on wearing a small tiara that matches the beading perfectly. So I’m going with a raw-edge cathedral veil, I haven’t got mine yet, but thankfully I know it will be easy to shop around for. Good luck in your search, what does you dress look like? $149 from DB doesn’t sound too bad, but I’m sure if you look hard enough you can find what you want for a bit less.

$25 off ebay – beaded edge, ssingle layer elbow length.  I didnt care about the veil at all and wanted a little something simple just to have a veil of some sort.

I got mine for $275 on Etsy from a seller, Sibo Designs. But there are definitely much cheaper veils on Etsy for less than $100. There are some other posts about them. I guess the level of intricacy would also alter the price, but maybe you could DIY it.

Mine is just a raw edge two tier to my hips…I got it for $25 on ebay, with shipping.

My dress is beaded as well and the veil I bought has beading/embroidery on the edges that match perfectly with my dress.  I felt that my veil was a bit pricey, but compared to the other veils in the bridal salon that were just as beaded/embroidered, if not even less, mine was the cheapest at $169.  While I was waiting for my veil to come in, I started to regret spending so much money on something I would only wear for about an hour.  But then when I received my veil, I realized how much I loved it and felt that the money spent was worth it, especially since it was so cheap compared to others!  I have looked at the cheap stores in downtown Los Angeles and even on Etsy, etc.. and I couldn’t find a veil that looked just like mine for less than what I paid for.  So I don’t regret paying the $169 plus taxes.  I do, however, plan on selling it after the wedding.  So hopefully I’ll make back at least HALF of what I spent.  Maybe consider it that way?

Mine was around $120 from the bridal salon where I bought my dress. It is very simple so I think I spent too much $, but I wanted to be able to try it on with my dress.

I haven’t bought a veil yet, but when I do, I know I’ll go with occanseydesigns.com.

You can basically customize a ton of options on your veil–length, edging, beading, fullness! It’s pretty affordable and easy. I think mine (cathedral length, raw edge, plain veil) will be around 77. hope that helps, OP!

I want to say the one I looked at and will probably get was around $270. I’m okay paying that much because I was way under budget for my dress and because it’s a bubble veil and there aren’t a ton of them around.

I almost fell over when I saw the price of veils so I am making my own…the fabric was 2.50 a meter (for the tulle) then I’m also making a birdcage for the reception (total for that fabric was 1.50)

here are some great tutorials:

I also made my fascinator:

It cost about $4 to make…..

I will tell you I DO NOT SEW….so if I can make these things so can anyone else!

My fascinator is PERFECT and the PERFECT colour for  my dress (I find that DIY can help you achiece the look/colour you want more than buying things)….

Good luck!

Mine was about $120. If you like it, buy it! That’s pretty cheap for David’s Bridal, all the ones I saw there were well over $200.
