    @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
