Mine was a simple raw edge drop veil that I pinned to my hair using pretty hair pins. It sounds like what you are describing. I ended up making mine last minute myself, due to a volcano, and it cost me $2 worth of tulle. You might stop by a fabric store, pick some up and try it. My veil ended up being my favorite part of my outfit that day.

@KyriaP2be:  Here are some Romona Keveza veils I have loved from Pinterest  that kind of match your description. I honestly think you could really really easily make a veil like these or if you aren’t confident I’m sure you could find something on Etsy for much much less that the $300 quoted to you in store.

What you’re describing is a simple drop veil. There’s tutorials all over utube.

Go to a fabric store and buy bridal illusion tulle. If you want it fingertip, get 72″ wide and buy 2 yards….trim all edges and drape it over your head. You can secure with a hatpin.

I just made my drop veil yesterday. It’s really easy to sew the comb onto the veil. What I did was draped the tulled over my head how I wanted it to be for the wedding and marked where I wanted the comb to go with a pin. Then when I took it off I made sure the pin was centered between the sides fo the tulle and just quickly whip stitched the comb on.

It’s best if you do this after you’ve cut the tulle and make sure that it’s how you like it : )

 

Good luck!
