    I agree with a PP that perhaps you could contact an Etsy seller (or probably better yet, a local seamstress) about customizing a veil to your liking.  The one you want is absolutely gorgeous, but that is SO MUCH money, especially given your current situation.  I wouldn’t “give up on it,” but I think you can find a way to have your dream veil for much less money.

    One other tip: If you exhaust all your other options (can’t get one made that you love as much, can’t find a cheaper one that you love as much, etc.), make up your mind to skip the veil.  Give yourself a couple weeks with your mind made up that this veil is just not a possibility – and if you still cannot get it out of your head & feel sad about not having it, buy it.  I do this “trick” to myself to find out my true feelings about a purchase; sometimes once I’ve given myself permission to let go of the thing I want, I realize that I don’t really need it & won’t regret not buying it…  Then sometimes, I realize that I do need it & will regret not buying it.

    A veil is not very important to me so I can’t relate to wanting one that is so expensive, but if it’s that important to you & you absolutely MUST have it, I would hate for you to regret not buying it while you’re getting ready the day of your wedding, looking at your pictures after the fact, etc.  If it’s something you NEED, you will find a way to make it work (like making your own cake, cutting corners elsewhere, etc.).  Just set your priorities & make sure you don’t bust your budget for this one item.  Smile

    Sorry. It wouldn’t be worth it to ME to pay that much for any veil, but if you’re doing it for the potential heirloom side of it, then maybe.

    its only a veil. You will only be wearing it at the ceremony and for pictures. Find something with less deatail for a fraction of the cost.

    The veil is gorgeous!! Although if you are not in a good place financially because of the loss of your FI’s job, then I dont think it would be a good move! That is alot of money. An isain amount of money for a veil IMO

    I think its lovely but REALLY expensive for what it is sorry. I’m sure its lovely though and I guess you’re paying for silk and real garnets but its not what I would spend especially considering the situation wiith your fiance. I would hold off and see how things go in the new year. Unless you’re getting married very soon, you still have time

    @SpecialSundae: I am glad!!! I think the veil is absolutely stunning and for the RIGHT veil I can totally see spending that much.

    I spent around $700 on mine and I cannot wait to see it.

    It is stunning and I understand where you are coming from. I lost my job and money is very tight. There have been so many things I have wanted and not getting. My day will still be beautiful and full of joy and that what matters. I just look at that the money saved is more memories we can make as a family down the road.

    i personally wouldn’t spend that much on a veil.  it’s just not worth it.

    BUT we’re not talking about me, we’re talking about you.  it seems like it’s worth it to you, and your Fiance is on board.  i would say, if you can afford it, go for it.  i’m unemployed WITHOUT contract work and i just spent $932 on a dress, so i can’t knock having your heart set on something and FINDING the money for it.  i did want to make a suggestion though, so i voted “other”…have you considered selling it on oncewed or whatever after the wedding to try to recoup some of the costs?

    If I wanted a veil like that, I’d buy it.  Go for it.
