If you want something custom made you can always put up a post on Etsy’s Alchemy feature (if you click on “Alchemy” on the first page it explains how it works).  There are lots of veil makers on Etsy and some make veils similar to what you’re looking for, I’ve seen them before.  I would just search veils like crazy first, see if there is something you like, and if not go the Alchemy route.  I bought my veil from Etsy but I am waiting for it to arrive still!

Jaylii9: I love love love your choice! You can absolutely have a replicate hand-made, custom-made for you by doing “Alchemy” on Etsy, as BrianaLaura suggests above. That way, you can review peoples’ bids on your project; you can review pix of their past work; and you can read their feedback, before choosing the right person. I did that and I got what I think is the best veil in the world. (I won’t post it again, because i’ve already posted it twice, and i’ve become a huge veil bore!!)

No problem!  My veil will be the 4th thing I bought off of Etsy.  The other three were all gifts, and the only (tiny) issue I had was that I ordered something for my dad for father’s day and got a father’s day discount, but the seller waited forever to send the item and it didn’t get here in time.  But the item was good once it got here!  The other things were also great, we got the cutest dress for my fiance’s 7 year old sister.  Just check their reviews, and you can always “convo” them first to see if they are responsive or not; you just contact the seller you are interested in to ask them some questions.

Good luck and I hope you have a great Etsy experience!

ohhh, i just got my veil a few weeks ago and LOVE it. It was very reasonably priced. Here’s the link to her store. She’s wonderful to work with and will even let you mail the veil back and keep working on it if you’re not happy with it, at no additional charge!

Here’s a picture of mine. I had her finish it off with tiny satin ribbon and add a few crystals to it and the finished product was wonderful. Sorry, i don’t do the digital thing, so i don’t have any pictures of it.

i’m loving all these great veils! this forum is such a great resource for ideas.

jaylii9: thanks so much for the sweet comment! i’m completely besotted with my veil. i never would have thought i could afford something so beautifully hand-done, but it worked out for me w/Etsy and a bit of leg-work. (PS: you know, if i could, i’d have YOUR veil, too!! it’s fab, fab, fab!)

I bought the double blusher from seller AnnLeslie.  It looks just like the one you have pictured.  She was able to make it in the blush pink to match my dress.  She has several colors to choose from.  Also she can change out the pearls for crystals if wanted.
