I think they could be sisters!  I actually prefer the cheaper one because I like the tiers. I can’t believe what they (“they” as in the bridal industry overall) get away with charging for veils in general.  Maybe I need to get into the veil business!    It’s criminal.  I had a $200 one on my head at David’s Bridal and I thought “are you people HIGH?  It’s some tulle on a comb!”

sorry, it just irks me.  But yes, I think that they are definitely similar enough.

@mandb122:   I hear ya!  I am making my own tulle birdcage veil, approximate total of around $10. 🙂

Have you searched ebay?  I am amazed… ebay is a buyer’s market in a lot of ways right now.  I used to sell full time on ebay for years and I was making a decent living doing it.  Now, there is no way I could… it’s changed sooo much!  This is good for finding great deals though. 

I just spent $106 (including shipping) on ebay and got my dress (currently $599 at david’s bridal) never worn from a bride who changed her mind, plus a new $180 veil (that I will sell), a new with tags crinoline, new flower hair comb, and new longline bra/torsolette thing.  I kid you not. I was sooooo worried I’d be outbid and the auction closed at $76, I was floored.  $30 is shipping.. and I was prepared to pay $650 (after tax) for the dress alone!

If you haven’t looked on ebay for your veil, you should!

Have you checked out Etsy? I got my veil from Simple Beautiful Veils and she can do any thickness or length that you want – just tell her you want 72inch fullness, 34inch length, double layer, etc. and ask for a price quote.

I was super happy with the quality of my veil, and the price couldn’t be beat!

I think they are both gorgeous, and sooo similar that nobody would notice the difference.  400 bucks for some tulle and crystals is absolutely insane!!!  I say go for the cheaper one!
