kelbrimale :  my veil was around the $599 mark. I absolutely loved it and it was worth the splurge. I wouldn’t in all honesty spend a lot of money on a plain tulle veil but if its hand made with quality fabric, has expensive lace appliques and intricate beading then I would see the value.  My veil had all three of these details and I felt it was worth the money. I still try it on once every year or so!

If you love the veil and see the value then just go fir it

$3 for the comb I sewed it on to. I wore my mom’s veil, just took it off of the very 1980’s headpiece and put it on a comb!

Is it worth splurging to buy at the dress shop to guarantee that the colours match? The veil there is $200 but it’s the exact same colour. Not sure if I should just go on etsy instead.

I regret spending about $150 on mine. I should have just bought a cheap one online for $30. It’s probably my only wedding regret TBH.

I spent £8 on a chapel length veil from amazon! It was exactly what I wanted – dead plain, double layer and was really soft tulle. Bizarrely, cheap as it was, I’ll be keeping it for my daughter to wear one day….!

I’m in the process at looking for a veil. Unless your looking for a veil that has lace or beading that’s the same as your dress you could totally get away with something cheaper. A lot of places you can order samples to match up to your dress so it’s the right color. But veils are pretty overpriced. I also thought they would be easier to find in stores. Look on Etsy do some online searches.

For those of you who did Etsy, were there any vendors you would recommend?

hokielizabeth :  this is what I’m hoping to do! Take off the 70’s hairpiece and extra layers and just use my Mom’s! We’re trying to bleach it this weekend actually! 

If that doesn’t work, then I’m going with something cheap off Amazon or making my own. My dress is really pretty and sparkly with an open back so I don’t want anything intricate on the veil to take away from it. I’m not open to spending $100’s for a piece of tulle.

 Mine was between 300 and 400 and I bought it at the same shop where I bought my dress. My friend wore a 5,000 dollar veil, if you can believe that!

My veil will be free because I’m borrowing it from one of my bridesmaids that got married in June. It will look totally different with my dress but it honestly matches perfectly!

Maybe if you have a friend that has a veil that you like that could be your something borrowed too?

I spent about $200 on mine and it was so beautiful with pearls and crystals all along the edge. I probably could have found a better price online but I waited until the last minute and I was able to try on the veil with my dress in the shop to make sure I liked it.
