I’m in a bit of a dilemma… I need to order my veil so that I can have my hair trial soon, but the one I fell in love with at David’s Bridal is $149 :-l With everything else I have bought this week, I am hard up to part with $149 for a veil I’m going to wear one time! On the other hand, I have been looking online, mostly Etsy & Ebay, and can’t really find one that looks like it!
Part of me says BUY IT!! But the other, more frugal part says FIND SOMETHING CHEAPER!!
Ladies, how much did you pay for your veil? & if you bought it online, where did you get it? I really need to make a decision about this in a few days. :-
Edit: here’s what my dress looks like

My dress is heavily beaded on the bodice and it continues on into the skirt and I plan on wearing a small tiara that matches the beading perfectly. So I’m going with a raw-edge cathedral veil, I haven’t got mine yet, but thankfully I know it will be easy to shop around for. Good luck in your search, what does you dress look like? $149 from DB doesn’t sound too bad, but I’m sure if you look hard enough you can find what you want for a bit less.

$25 off ebay – beaded edge, ssingle layer elbow length. I didnt care about the veil at all and wanted a little something simple just to have a veil of some sort.

I got mine for $275 on Etsy from a seller, Sibo Designs. But there are definitely much cheaper veils on Etsy for less than $100. There are some other posts about them. I guess the level of intricacy would also alter the price, but maybe you could DIY it.

Mine is just a raw edge two tier to my hips…I got it for $25 on ebay, with shipping.

My dress is beaded as well and the veil I bought has beading/embroidery on the edges that match perfectly with my dress. I felt that my veil was a bit pricey, but compared to the other veils in the bridal salon that were just as beaded/embroidered, if not even less, mine was the cheapest at $169. While I was waiting for my veil to come in, I started to regret spending so much money on something I would only wear for about an hour. But then when I received my veil, I realized how much I loved it and felt that the money spent was worth it, especially since it was so cheap compared to others! I have looked at the cheap stores in downtown Los Angeles and even on Etsy, etc.. and I couldn’t find a veil that looked just like mine for less than what I paid for. So I don’t regret paying the $169 plus taxes. I do, however, plan on selling it after the wedding. So hopefully I’ll make back at least HALF of what I spent. Maybe consider it that way?

Mine was around $120 from the bridal salon where I bought my dress. It is very simple so I think I spent too much $, but I wanted to be able to try it on with my dress.

I haven’t bought a veil yet, but when I do, I know I’ll go with occanseydesigns.com.
You can basically customize a ton of options on your veil–length, edging, beading, fullness! It’s pretty affordable and easy. I think mine (cathedral length, raw edge, plain veil) will be around 77. hope that helps, OP!

@drummerbride: I’ve been looking online, but I am so indecisive!!
@MrsWTD: The one I like has beading around the edge, and it was the one I tried on when I found my dress at the salon! I think that’s why I am so stuck on it.. I just remember how beautiful I felt with it on along with my dress.. I’ll end up selling my veil no matter what I pay for it so maybe I’ll just go with it..

@pinkshoes: Do you know which seller you got it from? That’s actually the length/style I’m looking for

I want to say the one I looked at and will probably get was around $270. I’m okay paying that much because I was way under budget for my dress and because it’s a bubble veil and there aren’t a ton of them around.

I almost fell over when I saw the price of veils so I am making my own…the fabric was 2.50 a meter (for the tulle) then I’m also making a birdcage for the reception (total for that fabric was 1.50)
here are some great tutorials:
I also made my fascinator:
It cost about $4 to make…..
I will tell you I DO NOT SEW….so if I can make these things so can anyone else!
My fascinator is PERFECT and the PERFECT colour for my dress (I find that DIY can help you achiece the look/colour you want more than buying things)….

Mine was about $120. If you like it, buy it! That’s pretty cheap for David’s Bridal, all the ones I saw there were well over $200.
