The veils that I found were pretty expensive (to me at least). I just wanted a one layer fingertip length with a little beading or jewels along the edge and the first one I tried was almost $300!! I ended up finding one at a different store that was similar but it was still $180 and I still hate that I spent that much on a veil. I would try looking for a used one or maybe on etsy to see if you can find a more affordable one.

Hi! I just purchased my dress also (yay!) and am in the same boat as you. I’ve started looking at veils–I think I want to do a fingertip with the scalloped lace trim! There is a lady who lives locally here that MAKES them– all you have to do is purchase the fabric, lace, etc & give them to her. I have a friend that had one made for $8. No lie. and it was gorgeous! I’m just saying–definitely shop around because a lot of bridal salons have them waaay overpriced for what they really are. 🙂

Yea! an excuse to post my veil. I was definitely looking for a mantilla style veil. The more lace/beading the more expensive. Mine was 220 and is “waltz” length. (check out the little girl in a belle costume in the background haha). I was hesitant to buy on etsy because I was worried I’d have trouble matching my ivory dress.

@PinkPinstripes: Oh I think its super easy to make a veil depending on what you’re looking for. Plus, the materials are so cheap (tulle + thread + comb) that you can afford to mess up a few times.

Try Etsy.com! Bought mine on there for $16 and DB wanted over $100 for the same thing.

@LGenz: your veil is AMAZING!! i’m having a terrible time looking for a veil (it’s harder than the dress, lol), but yours is beautiful. i wanted a 2 tier mantilla veil. is yours pinned or on a comb? are you wearing them both back or as a blusher too? really pretty!!

If you aren’t looking for a lot of lace and professional (i.e., beyond hobbyist level) detail work, definitely make your own or have a sewing-able friend do it! 

Bridal tulle should not be more than a few dollars a yard and you can save so much money just following a pattern and putting your own ribbon edging on the bottom. I’m going to do this and will absolutely post pics. 🙂

denverfabrics.com should have tulle!
