    Mine was fingertip length I think, or at least it was on me. It had just a line of plain beading along the bottom edge. It waas two-tiered, so that the top tier was the blusher. It was right around $50 from the store where I got my dress, however my dress was not from a bridal salon (just a special events dress store) so it was less expensive than it would’ve been at a bridal salon. I liked it, but not enough to have spent more money on it.

    I fell in love with a beaded lace fingertip length veil at the salon. However, I wasn’t willing to pay the $350 price tag. I went home and found it online for $140.

    I found one when I was at the bridal shop that I absolutely loved, but when I saw the pricetag I almost died. It was $300. So, after taking more time to look at the veil I decided to make mine because tulle costs like $2/yard. I got lace trim off etsy and sewed it onto the veil.

    @NurseMandie:  Mine’s a plain, single-tier cathedral-length; it cost $300.

    @NurseMandie:  I wore my grandma’s 60+ year old veil, it was a blusher finger tip that was 100% free 🙂

    My veil is elbow length.. and trimmed with the exact lace on my dress. I paid just about $500 for it.

    For some reason I had such a hard time pulling the trigger on it, it just felt like such a waste.. but my mom wanted me in a veil and I did look really good in it.

    @tentwelvethirteen:  *slow clap* it looks beautful! If you hadn’t have said you made it yourself I would have thought you bought it.

    Mine was $130!

    It was a cascade veil, and it was fingertip length in the back and elbow length in the front!

    Mine was super simple, finger tip length with a blusher and I only wore it for the ceremony.  It cost me under $20 because I made it with the help of my aunt.

    I am embarassed by this… mine was $450. It’s cathedral length and lined with lace. I have always wanted a cathedral length veil and I was $800 under budget on my dress… so it kind of just happened.

     

    *hides in shame*

    I regret getting the veil from the same store as my dress. It was too short and way too expensive. I am going to exchange it when it comes in and buy a chapel online for like $20. They are SO expensive in the stores!!
