    Mine was $600. I really had no idea how much they cost before I bought mine.

    I splurged a bit on my veil. It was a Italian silk tulle drop veil with pearls and crystals, and matched my dress perfectly. I paid $238 for it, and for me it was worth every penny. But, I also wore heirloom jewelry, so the veil and my headpiece were the only accessories I paid for, so it was still in budget.

    Veils are a huge profit-driver for bridal shops. They require very little actual sewing and usually only a few dollars’ worth of materials. If you want a simple raw-edged veil, you can DIY one for pocket change.

    If you want something with lace or applique’s, beading, crystals, other embellishments, etc., that justifies a bit higher price tag (higher materials cost, and it involves more actual sewing and requires a little more skill) – but still no reason to pay something ridiculous.

    I ended up getting two relatively inexpensive veils from Light In The Box.com and sewing them together to create a really spectacular 4-tier lace-edged veil:

    Less than $50! Looked no different from the $200 version at the bridal store!

    It’s an angel-cut veil with beading on it.

    About $4 on mine. I’m DIYing mine, the fabric was like 1.5 for a yard and then count in the thread needles and hair combs I already had I’d say about $4. The pearls came off a wedding dress I was given for free that didn’t fit so I took off the appliques and pearls and am using it for my veil and bouquet

    Mine was $400-500 but I made a deal with the salon to sell me the dress, veil, belt, tax, shipping, and alterations all for $3000.  Otherwise, it would have been much, much more!  The dress itself was around $2200.  So, I think I got a great deal!

    Jasmine’s is making mine for a VERY reasonable price.

    Here’s my inspiration –

    $280+ tax. It’s a cathedral length veil with Chantilly lace along the lower half that matches my dress.

    I am making mine from a comb I’ll probably find off of ebay for about $10, and the fabric I bought from JoAnne’s (5 yards… 2 went to the bodice of my dress, 3 is going to be my veil) was only $30!
