siaramisu302 :  I don’t have any tips for diy veils but I just wanted to suggest maybe checking Etsy for a veil. I purchased my veil from a seller on Etsy for $30.00.

I made my own veil in about 5 minutes. It cost $3.00 for 1/2 yard of tulle and a plastic clip. It looked great. Now it was very simple with an “invisible hem” meaning there wasn’t any beading or lace…just tulle. But if you want something simple there is just no reason to spend the money.

siaramisu302 :  I made mine! I used the leftover lace trim from my dress alterations and my mom and I sewed it onto tulle we got at the fabric store for $1.50. We just looked up a YouTube tutorial for the length and style I wanted and bought a comb to attach it to. So in total, it cost me about $5 and some mother/daughter bonding time 😁

siaramisu302 :  I didn’t DIY mine (I DIYed almost everything else and I couldn’t take on one more task, haha.) I ended up buying mine on Etsy for ~$30. But really, it’s not all that difficult. And if you don’t like the way it came out, that’s fine, you’ll only be out a couple of dollars that you spent on fabric.

I was able to purchase my veil off the rack at my bridal salon and paid like 50% off.. they say it’s bad luck for a bride to “make her own dress”, not sure if thats related to the veil lol

I am currently making my veil – hand beading the edges, so it is a slow process! But hopefully will be worth it.

The most comprehensive tutorial I found online is

Make your own wedding veil

If you can make hairpieces, you can totally make a veil. Silk tulle is a bit harder to edge with lace because it’s so fragile, but the normal tulle is really easy to decorate. I wanted a chapel length veil fully edged with lace and was quoted about $300, I nearly died.

I planned to DIY mine but ended up with no veil and just a hairpiece I’d made and was super happy with that. Working with the tulle ultimately made me wonder why I wanted a big strip of it hanging from my head covering my hair, headpiece, dress, or face.

It cost six dollars for me to order something through Aliiexpress.  I added some some stuff but I think the Bride is happy.
