Did you buy your veil from a different place than your bridal salon?

The veil I want is $350 from the designer and the shop didn’t carry it anyway so I was sort of off the hook. It’s just a plain white veil with flakes of mica along the bottom so I’m going to either attempt a DIY or find a custom Etsy seller willing to make it.

I got my veil from another store.  I paid like 30 bucks for it and most veils they sold at the salon were crazy expensive.  They didn’t really seem to care.  Yeah, they like you to buy everything there, but I bought an expensive dress from them and all my bridesmaids purchased dresses from there (whom all had a good experience at that store and would come back when they are getting married).  A good salon cares more about good customer relationships.

I had the same question! But also… do you need an appointment just to look at veils? Can you just show up?  I think I want a long veil but I have never tried one on so I would rather not just buy one online without knowing a little more. I’m also considering a horsehair edge veil but I’m not sure if they’re too stiff to look pretty in wind.  Any thoughts?

Just bought my wedding veil this morning for $9.80 from Ebay. Woohoo!! I’ll let you ladies know what I think when it arrives in 1-2 months. lol. For some reason, even paying $50 for a tulle veil makes my stomach turn a little bit because the fabric is so cheap. The wedding industry’s markups are just insane! But, you do get what you pay for…so we’ll see. xoxo.

I couldn’t imagine shelling out a ton of money on a veil.  I bought extra lace from Maggie Sottero (the same lace on my dress) to heavily alter my dress (major dress regret!!) and used the left over lace to make my own veil. I just bought the tulle from JoAnns and the hair comb from Amazon.
