Mine took 6 weeks.  I’d check with a place first though-that could be cutting it close!  Maybe try getting one from Etsy where you could actually tlak with the person making it!

You may be able to buy a sample from a local shop…and get a deal on it

I got my veil from a local shop in 2 weeks….but there were other styles that would have taken longer to come in.

Why not just try veils on in the local shop and then order from veilshop.com?  it’ll come in like a week and be returnable if you don’t like it.

I ordered a Malis Henderson veil from a local bridal shop and it took 4 weeks to arrive.  I think as long as you order within this week you should be fine!

I ordered mine from a bridal shop and it took over 5 months! The fabric was stcuk on a barge coming in from China. It got stuck in customs for a really long time! So I think my experience was unusual, but also could not have been predicted. It might be safest to purchase one that does not have to come from abroad.

My "real" job is with a wedding accessories manufacturer–we do rush orders all the time.  Timing depends on how complicated the piece is (something with a lot of beading would obviously take longer) and whether the materials are in stock.  8 weeks should be more than enough time to get a piece to you, but bear in mind that depending on the companies’ policies (both the salon and the veil manufacturer) you may have to pay a rush fee and/or expedited shipping.
