Got my beautiful dress now, just wondering where I could get a nice new veil that’s not over the top expensive (like over $100!) Any good online stores that are decent? (besides ebay and the usual second hand places!) I’m also looking for a tiara! Are there such things as kits for both of these? or maybe just a tiara kit?

I bought mine off etsy. They are really inexpensive there and the sellers are so talented!

I worked with glamgal.com She is wonderful to work with, if you dont see what you want email her and she can make it. It takes a few days for her to email you back but her work is wonderful and she is so nice.

I would have recommended ebay, but since you said “except ebay”…
You could always make it yourself! Tulle is insanely cheap, and they have some sewing patterns out there for some of the more traditional styles (i.e. fingertip length with blusher, etc). The hardest part is cutting it straight and finishing the edge. Gathering it at the top is as easy as weaving a piece of clear thread across the tulle and then pulling it tight to scrunch it up. You can get the comb at just about any craft/hobby store, and top with a broach or silk flower.

Oh and yes they sell veil kits! I saw some at Michael’s.

This place will send you free samples. It took less than a week to get them, but I haven’t taken them anywhere to compare. I plan to soon since I don’t know the first thing about veils.

I got a great chapel length one from heknowsmyname on etsy. I think it was about $70. Good luck!

Ugh, veils are so expensive! I was shocked! I lucked out because my mom asked me if I’d wear her veil. My “something old” =)

ETSY! No joke, you need to go there. XolBridalBoutique is easy and fast to work with.

They have a big selection, as well as videos explaining the differences between veils and veils in general (I knew NOTHING going into it, other than that I did not want to spend $200+). They have a great return policy so you can order a few options and return the ones you decide not to keep. Great customer service too.
Just to give an idea, my veil cost $40 (plus shipping).

I wish I would have known about etsy before I bought mine… it was $200 from the bridal shop and nothing special. I mean, it is pretty but I could have gotten something gorgeous at etsy for half the price!

I know you said not ebay… BUT there are places that make them brand new, like that sell them online on ebay and as well as in a store somewhere I got mine on there because I basically wanted just a simple fingertip 1 tier beaded edge veil and got it for $23 for shipping and everything!! its just tulle!!!
