What do I do with extra veils that don't belong to me??

30 bucks to ship veils? I’d fold them up small and put them in one of their flat rate boxes. I don’t know where you’re getting the 30 dollar shipping fee… they can always steam them to straighten them out again. My veil came to me wrapped around a tube so it was in a super tiny package.

I agree with the other brides. Whether it was their mistake or not, it doesn’t make it okay for you to keep them. I’d fold them and ship them.

I would just cover the cost and pay to ship them back. Regardless of the fact that it was their mistake that made you end up with 2 extra veils, I would personally felt like I had stolen something and would try and get them back ASAP so I didn’t have to feel guilty anymore. $30 also seems extreme. I’ve shipped much heavier things for far less.

Agree with @Hyperventilate throw them in a flat rate box and send it back, shouldn’t cost you more than $10.

I would mail them back, and no, it would not cost $30.  You fold them, put them into an envelope, and the designer steams them.  It literally, would take you 10 minutes to do this.

Send em COD. That way they’ll have to pay to pick them up and you’re not out any $$. Otherwise I would call them once more and say if you don’t make an arrangement I’m going to post them on Ebay.

But it seems you want to send them back, so where is the problem?

Selling them would be morally wrong. You’re selling something that, by all admissions, isn’t yours. It’s kind of like borrowing something from a buddy that says “Bring it back whenever.” That means “Bring it back sometime in this century, but it doesn’t have to be tomorrow.” and if you were to just keep it and never return it because he didn’t give a definitive answer, would still be wrong.

Ultimately what you do is up to you. I think it would be wrong to keep them or sell them. They aren’t yours to keep or sell. Yes, other people make mistakes sometimes. But it makes you a good person to send them back. Cathedral length veils are definitely bigger, but you can still gently wrap them around an old cardboard tube (Wrapping paper tube, for example) and cut the tube down to length. It doesn’t have to be 30 dollars shipping.

Do whatever you’re going to do, but I think you should ship them back, whether or not they were nonchalant about their answers.
