So when I went shopping for my dress last month, my attendant came and finished the look by putting a fingertip veil on me. I absolutely love how the veil sparkles and how great I feel with it on, and how it compliments my dress so well, however, the veil is not embelished with diamonds..so why the heck are some pretty yet simple veils so darn expensive?! Call me dumb, but I really dont get it.
Either way, even though I love the veil, I just got that bit of “did I really pay 360$ on a veil? feeling. My DH (whom went dress shopping with me) sure got a bit of sticker shock, He thought it would be less than 100$.
Here’s a picture of the 438$ Koesler veil, discouted to 360$

@SimonSaysBride: sounds like you really liked the veil. Maybe you can sell it after your wedding to recoup some cash?

I feel ya! I spent just over $300 on my cathedral length veil. It didn’t have a TON of detail, but the price was still up there. I absolutely loved it, it went perfectly with my dress, and I had always dreamed of a long veil. In the end, I’d do it again!

I haven’t purchased a veil yet, but I did go to a bridal salon that was giving a free veil (up to $250) with the purchase of any Maggie Sottero gown. Heck of a deal! 🙂

My fingertip veil with beading on the edge was $110. Maybe keep shopping around? $360 is WAY too high IMO. You can get a lot of whole dresses for that. Tulle is not expensive, and beading is not THAT expensive, and they don’t exactly have a complicated pattern.

I bought mine off Amazon for $25, a cathedral length veil. I was not entirely sure if it was legit, but I received the package…and it was GORGEOUS. Probably, definitely not the NICEST in quality, but for something I will wear for maybe 1.5hours, worth the very cheap cost 🙂

I have a very similar veil (fingertip, embellished with Swarovski crystals). It was free with my dress because I was so iffy about the dress price.

Ordered a cut edge elbow length veil off eBay for $15. My mom is going to bead the edge . . . Could not imagine spending $150 for something we could do for $20 . . . But my mom is an artist and works in beads already, and she has ALWAYS wanted to make my dress. We decided that wasn’t a good option, got a great deal on my dress, and now she’s doing my veil, making two sashes, and creating our hand fasting cords 🙂 then she’ll actually DO the hand fasting (she is also a weaver).

@SimonSaysBride: yea, i felt the same way about my veil. I paid $400 for my cathedral lace with mantilla veil. Its 1 piece of fabric. I shouldn’t have paid more than $150-$200 and even that is still a lot
