I remember a while back someone posted how the quality of wedding dresses generally goes up significantly at the $3K mark. I was wondering how does that work for viels – and in general, what makes a viel cheap / expensive. Is it the material, designer name, etc? I’m going wedding accessory shopping this weekend and want to be somewhat knowledgeable about what I’m getting myself into.
Any knowledge you can drop on me would be much appreciated 🙂

The thing that really affects veil price is the type of material and embellishments, and the length and fullness, aka how much fabric. And I’m sure a designer name does too, but I don’t really know anything about that. The most common fabric, bridal illusion tulle, is only about $5/yard, but then there’s the labor of attaching it to a comb, shaping it, and, optionally, adding rhinestones, pencil edge, lace, etc. I’m getting my veil off Etsy, from VeilsbyRoxanne, and if you google her, I found her website and etsy page very informative. And she’s affordable, if you order from her she’s very helpful, she’ll give you any advice you ask for, and send you swatches for $6 but credit that towards your veil if you buy one from her. Good luck and have fun shopping!

I have a veil shop on etsy. I use bridal illusion tulle and that’s what most designers use. In my store, the price goes up depending on the lace that I use and how much time it’s going to take me to do the embellishments you want added. But if it’s just a simple cut edge veil, you can buy bridal illusion tulle yourself at JoAnn’s for about $2.00 a yard if you find a good coupon. The comb will cost you about $5.00 and with thread, you can make a cathedral length veil for less than $15.00.
Of course, if you have a designer make the veil, the price goes up significantly.

Silk tulle run about $50 to $100 per year for just the material, but I makes the most beautiful veils, imo. Kate’s veil was silk tulle.

Well I paid $800 for my veil and to be honest I would have happily paid less. Because of the length I wanted and added crystals the cost skyrocketed to the point of ridiculous.
Tulle is more or less just tulle. As the PP mentioned it is the additions to the tulle that can cause the price to increase.

Thank you so much! I realized that longer would be more expensive but otherwise I just didnt understand how a cathedral veil price can go from $35 – $1900…
Really appreciate this!

WeddingBecks: I actually bought my veil from http://www.occanseydesigns.com they did amazing!! You get to pick the fullness, color, material, length, and embellishments. They were very quick on email questions and shipped my veil before scheduled. Good luck.
