I found one I loved in a wedding shop and then ordered one almost identical to that one on ebay for $20!

You can find some cheap ones on etsy as well. I’d love to see your dress when it is finished!!

I’ll be borrowing my mother’s veil from her wedding. 🙂

I agree that Etsy has cheap ones too. Mine wasn’t cheap but it was from Etsy and I looked FOREVER so I know that they have so many varying price ranges.

What kind of veil do you have in mind? I knew I wanted my veil plain but a long cathedral 1T. I found a great deal–$21.99– for it at valuveil.com

What style veil are you looking for? I got mine on Etsy and came across a wide selection. I even found a really nice seller that can custom make something for you.

This Etsy seller has beautiful veils, lots of lace ones and she will custom make something if you want. They are a little pricey but not even close to what you’d pay at a bridal salon for something similar.

I made mine – it was like $7 total. Since I was only going to wear it for the ceremony, I gagged at the idea of spending as much as bridal shops charge. I was able to find a lot of cheap options on Ebay, but I couldn’t commit to any of them – it was too hard to tell if it was what I really wanted. The good thing about making it is that the materials are so cheap, you can easily do a “practice” veil to see if it’s going to work.

I purchased a 2 tier veil from ebay that had ribbon edging, it was only 1.26! (but it does not go as long as you would like).

I simply added the beading that I wanted and removed the ribbon and got the perfect veil! I am sure you could do the same by adding lace

 

Making a viel is really not that difficult either, I mean it is just tulle, have you considered making one?

@BetterSherm:  Yeah, I just googled “DIY wedding veil tutorial” and kind of checked out the different methods people recommended. I am NOT a sew-er (sp?), but it was pretty easy to do. Hand rolled edges ARE pretty hard, but you should be able to hand-sew lace trim pretty easily. I also liked that I had the option to spend a bit more on nicer material (satin tulle) and experiment with different material (organza) with it still being way inexpensive.

I will say that if you want your photgrapher to take a lot of close-ups of the details of your veil, it may not be the way to go, but that was definitely not a priority of mine. Here’s probably the “highest profile” pic taken of mine, during our first look:
