@SoontobeMrsAM:  I bought mine from Preownedweddingdresses.com. I offered the seller less than she was asking for it, and she accepted since she was moving and didn’t want to have to pack it. Sometimes items on that site take a long time to sell, so it’s always worth a shot to make an offer. I just received it yesterday and it looks perfect!

I know there are also a lot of other Bees who bought their veils new online from various sites and they turned out great. Etsy and Lightinthebox seem to be the most popular from what I’ve seen.

@SoontobeMrsAM:  I got mine from dhgate.com for $15 with free shipping. It came wrinkled and needed a little steaming to get to looking good, but come on, $15 for a veil instead of $150? HELL yes.

I ordered from megsveils on etsy and I have zero regrets.  It was $425 cheaper than what the bridal salon tried to sell me.  And yes I compared them after I received the one from etsy and even the bridal store told me it was an awesome price for the quality of the veil.

i got mine for a killer price on ebay. it took quite alot of searching for the right one, but i got one from a guy who was selling old stock from a bridal shop…

108 inch circle, soft tulle, ribbon edged…. £4.49 inc P+P (approx $7.50)

i would stay away from the ‘buy it now’ ones from china – they are crazy cheap but the material and finish is cheap too. just a case of being in the right place at the right time on ebay. 🙂

good luck finding one.xxx

If you are looking for a “simple veil” (which I am interpreting to mean no lace, ribbon, beading, etc.), have you thought about just buying some tulle at a fabric store and DIYing it? A single-layer veil is one of the easiest sewing projects out there. Even if you’ve never picked up a needle in your life, if you have ANY friends or family members who sew anything at all, they will be able to help you make a basic veil for pocket change.

Etsy mine was 45 and some change. With added length and it is two tiers. I love it….seriously it looked as good as the 200$ one I was going to get

The photo is at my final fitting (removing from bad car crash so excuse my lack of makeup lol)

Etsy has a great selection…..almost too much to choose from if you ask me 😉

I choose my top 5 favorite veils and posted them on wedding.choisr.com and the brides there helped me pick which one looks best with my dress and theme! great website to get real life feedback and help 🙂

good luck! X

I had bought a simple chapel length veil on ebay for $11. I changed my dress so ended up having to change my veil and got another one on ebay for $90 (retails for $160).
