My grandmother actually JUST took me to a fabric store last weekend and bought me all of the supplies I need to make my own birdcage veil.  🙂  I plan on making it tonight, so I’ll make sure I document the process with pictures and I’ll comment again on this thread.

I think she spent about $3 on the supplies (the fabric, a hair comb, and some pearl trim to cover the comb) and then $20 on rhinestone accents if I decide I want to add some sparkle.  $23 isn’t too bad considering almost all of the birdcage veils I looked at were a minimum of $45.

I think you can also find birdcage veils at Michael’s for around $30.

@LizLemon:  You can find some on etsy that are just plain and you can add your own embellishments. They run around $20. This is what I plan on doing.
