All I have left for my accessories are garters and a veil. I tried to google around and check out veils and I ran up to a local wedding boutique and tried a few on. All the ones she put on me were $200+. Maybe it’s the DIY/crafter in me but I can’t fathom spending that much on some tulle that costs $1.99/yard! But the more I searched, I see bubble, tiers, beads, lining, lace, catherdral, drop, etc……
How did you choose your veil?

@candief: I think the best starting point is by considering the following:
- your dress (silhouette, embellishments, fabric, etc)
- your theme/personality (what “look” are you going for?)
- your venue (church? beach? barn? desert?)
- your budget
This will help you eliminate veils that won’t work for you, but it’ll also help you figure out which styles you like best. And then you can choose from there. 🙂 Also, there’re thousands of veils ranging from affordable to arm-leg expensive. So, if you like a particular style, there’s a good chance it comes in a similar, yet more cost-effective, style.

@candief: I knew I wanted a fingertip length veil so that it was still long but I wasn’t stepping on it and with rhinestones along the edge to weight it down so it wasn’t flying around!
Past that I also knew I didn’t want to spend $200+ at the boutique, so I hopped on Ebay and bought two to try, loved the second one for $25 and resold the other for the same price I paid for it!
But I’m not a DIY person so you could probably spend even less!
