If you’re going for the scattered crystal look, I’d recommend getting flatback crystals and using a gem glue like “Gem-Tac’.   Mark out the pattern that you want the crystals in first.  Then use just a small amount of the gem glue to attach them.  One trick I’ve learned is to have the veil elevated so that the glue can’t touch any surfaces.  If the glue dries while touching something, you risk losing some of the glue when you rip it off.  Then the crystals might fall off and you’ll have to start all over again.  I’ve heard of some people using the hot fix crystals but you have be really careful not to damage the delicate tulle.  I hope that helps!

You could also try Etsy if you’re worried about the DIY route.  There are so many talented designers on there and their prices are SO much more affordable than the bridal salons.  Good luck!
