I got mine for $150. I know I could have gotten one for a cheaper price (I wanted to keep it under $75), but I fell in love with it the second I tried it on. Luckily my dress was under budget, so I did not feel bad about paying the extra money for it!

I am in the same situation, i already have a veil but it doesnt go with my plan b dress :(, and i want a very soft simple and long veil, ive been looking at one at ebay they have the hexagonal soft tulle and they will add a metal comb instead of plastic, for 27 bucks so i think ill probably try that route.

I spent ~$300 on mine. It was cathedral legnth, didn’t have any embellishments, but the color matched my dress really well and it was gauzey and beautiful. I’m glad I had it – we ended up with a windy day, and while I haven’t seen photos yet – I suspect it made for some pretty pics!

 

I would not recommend spending a whole lot more than that. That was one of the less expensive veils I found in person, and I only wore it for ceremony and photos. And I can’t imagine ever wearing it again lmao.

clairhuxtable :  Mone was $15 from Amazon. I didn’t want to spend a whole lot on it since I only wore it for a few pics and the ceremony.  I ordered it on a whim thinking that if it didn’t work it would be fine since it was so inexpensive. Luckily it was perfect and the lace edging even matched.

clairhuxtable :  I spent $50 on Amazon to substitute for a veil at the bridal shop that was going to cost between $275-$300. The veil was so gorgeous and photogaphed so well – two tier with rhinestones and pearl. An expensive veil is not worth it.

Buy a cheap one.
I regret buying my simple one for $150. I wish I’d gone for a $20 one I’ve seen online that looks pretty similar.

I spent about $70 on the cathedral veil I made. It would have been much cheaper if I didn’t trim it with lace (I bought 10 yards of lace). It was definitely worth it 🙂

I spent 115$ CAN on my veil from Etsy, and I thought I was getting a way better deal than I could find in bridal salons (which I was). But after seeing all the amazing veils on here from Amazon and Ebay, I feel like I really overpaid!

A friend of mine is a milliner by trade – I’ve asked for her help making a birdcage veil for me. I’ve sent her through a few photos and she’s quoted between $60-100 (that’s AUD), which I think is incredibly reasonable for the materials and the time/effort/love that gets put into her work 🙂

Plus, I get a unique headpiece that no-one else will have! It can become an heirloom!
