Did you not try on any with your dress?  Even if you dont buy any at the same salon (hello markup) you could have at leats gotten ideas of what you like.  You can wait for your dress but there’s no harm in starting early, especially if you want something custom that takes several weeks.

@MissKit:  I ordered mine when my dress came in, however I ordered my dress a year before the wedding.  My veil already came in too, I think it took a month or two.

@MissKit:  I think you should try some on with your dress. If I hadnt I wouldve never had a good idea. I just custom ordered one this past Sunday but I told the woman I didnt need it until May when my dress comes in. Many places I called said I could wait though. For most custom veil orders they said max of 6-7 weeks.

@MissKit:  Not sure how long it will take for your dress to come but some veils take 6-8 weeks to come in or if your order from a shop on ETSY where someone has to make it it could take several weeks as well. Maybe you can go back to the bridal shop and try on the sample dress and tell them you want to try out different veils. Since you bought your dress they shouldn’t have a problem with that. It took me several months to decide on a veil then I ordered it from ETSY and it took another 6 weeks to get to me……so the sooner the better!

I asked my boutique and they said it takes about 2 months for veils to come in.

Your veil should be appropriate to your venue. If you are having a afternoon garden wedding you may want to go fingertip a formal or semiformal wedding you may want a cathedral length. Remeber all the accessories veil, headpiece jewelry, reception dress and alterations need to be part of your budget for your wedding attire. headpiece and veil can add as much as 300.00-1,200+ to your budget depending on the designer and look you choose.

hope this helps
