    I had a fingertip veil made for $20 off an etsy seller then bought a new pearl and rhinestone comb off eBay for $10.

    When I decided on which dress I wanted, the sales people slapped on all sorts of accessories. Of course being in some sort of semi-dazed volunerable state, I said yes to all of them. I didnt even look at the price because my dress cost less than 1/2 my original budget so I didnt think twice about spending money on the accessories. Stupid choice. I look back and wish I wouldve actually shopped for a veil and head piece instead of just buying the very first ones they put on my head. I am usually very good about those things, but I guess I was caught up in the moment and didnt care. 

    Veil- 350 

    Headpiece/beaded headband – 175

    So sadly I am not even in LOVE with these things and I know I could gotten much better deals had I shopped around.

    Ok, I can’t lie, I cheaped out on my veil (like 50 bucks on etsy, I just wanted it long and plain), but i completely blew the piggy bank on my headpiece. Embarrasing how much was spent. I have justified it by noting that I don’t really have any hair (pixie bride woo) and I need the extra bling.

    No regrets, me and my boy cut over here deserve the bad assed headband.

    Well my veil was $200, but I got it free with my bridal gown purchase and I bought my hair accessory from a bridal shop that was going out of business. So instead of $150 on the hair pins, I spent $50.

    My veil was $200, and my headband was $130.

    I bought a veil and flower on etsy for around $80 + shipping before that, and they were horrible, the veil was yellow and had crooked edges, the flower looked like t was made out of an 80’s tracksuit. I ended up getting a refund on them, but had to wear the $50 international shipping cost, so I decided it was worth it to me to buy quality pieces I knew I would be happy with.

    emilyluwest:  Yes I wish someone would have warned me about it. My mom and everyone who was with me were just caught up in the moment, that we just all thought everything looked fabulous. I would be skeptical of even looking at veils the day you find your dress. It is emotional and weird (at least for me it was). Your standing in a room full of people looking/smiling at you in a big white dress, its so hard to say no to people.

    I had a Cathedral veil that was $400. It was exactly what I wanted, but I wasn’t going to get it because of the price, so my parents bought it for me cause my mom LOVED it. I also had an elbow length veil for the reception that I got for free. My head price was around $20 from etsy.

    Bought my hair flower online I think for $60US. I’m sure I could have found something cheaper but every flower I came across looked fake and poorly made. The ones in the salon around my area were $100-150 and didn’t look worth the money either. Finally I figured out how I wanted my hair and even if it doesn’t work, this flower will still be going in my hair. I opted for no veil as everyone I tried on, I didn’t like the look for myself.

    This is the headpiece I’m getting and it’s called Ramona. The shop is HannaBella Designs. Including shipping, the total is 39 dollars. I love the design and I’m happy I got it. I was originally going to buy a veil for 55 dollars but, they discounted it the week before I was going to buy. I freaked out and last second, found Ramona.<br /> emilyluwest:  Here’s a picture of Ramona

    I’ve been struggling with this question lately myself. I went shoppin gover the weekend with MOH and the veils I like are in the neighborhood of 200 and I found a belt I love for 300+ tax . Trying to shop around and really see what I can get for my money before commiting to the belt especially. You don’t realize how much all of these accessories can cost if you’re not thinking up front!

    Even the simple beaded-edge fingertip veils I tried on were $150 or more! I got a $15 one on eBay and my mom is beading the edge and doing a native design in the middle. I’m also having fresh flowers wrapped, for using once I take off my veil (likely after the ceremony).
