I made my own, but I just did a simple drop veil and held it on with some pretty hair pins that I purchased at glamgal.com.

My mom did my sister-in-law’s veil, and she will be doing mine. I’m not spending $200 for that! That’s ridiculous! It’s a piece of fabric, sometimes not even with a finished edge. Total rip off. Mom did it rather quickly, and I couldn’t tell it wasn’t purchased. She’s skilled in the sewing area and can do things from patterns, but she’s not a seamstress, and she found it easy. Doesn’t hurt to try at least ^_^

This is not mine, but my SIL.  My friends mom made it.  And she is doing mine as well.  It was based off a $1200 veil she found.  I think this one cmae in around $50-75 (we had to buy all the flowers).  My friends mom just enjoys sewing and stuff but doesn’t do this professionally at all.  She said they were rather simple.  I wish I could offer more advice. 

Good luck and can’t wait to see pictures.

I’m making a detachable blusher for my veil, although I may still just end up wearing my veil as a drop veil instead. Just waiting on the velcro for the blusher. Cut the tulle a few days ago… it was really easy. Much easier than I expected, actually. Looks good, too!
