Hi Ladies –
I’m at the point where I need to go out an purchase my veil and I’m not sure how much to spend. I’ve tried on veils that are $60 and then I’ve tried on some that are $800. I’m not a veil expert, but they all look the same to me! Budget really isn’t an issue, but everybody loves to save a little money, right? What’s the difference? Am I missing something?
How much did you spend on your veil?

Mine was $600. I really had no idea how much they cost before I bought mine.

I did not vote… I bought mine for $30 on Etsy! It was a very simple veil, but exactly what I was looking for. http://www.etsy.com/shop/Diamondweddingveil?ref=seller_info

I splurged a bit on my veil. It was a Italian silk tulle drop veil with pearls and crystals, and matched my dress perfectly. I paid $238 for it, and for me it was worth every penny. But, I also wore heirloom jewelry, so the veil and my headpiece were the only accessories I paid for, so it was still in budget.

Veils are a huge profit-driver for bridal shops. They require very little actual sewing and usually only a few dollars’ worth of materials. If you want a simple raw-edged veil, you can DIY one for pocket change.
If you want something with lace or applique’s, beading, crystals, other embellishments, etc., that justifies a bit higher price tag (higher materials cost, and it involves more actual sewing and requires a little more skill) – but still no reason to pay something ridiculous.
I ended up getting two relatively inexpensive veils from Light In The Box.com and sewing them together to create a really spectacular 4-tier lace-edged veil:

Less than $50! Looked no different from the $200 version at the bridal store!

It’s an angel-cut veil with beading on it.

About $4 on mine. I’m DIYing mine, the fabric was like 1.5 for a yard and then count in the thread needles and hair combs I already had I’d say about $4. The pearls came off a wedding dress I was given for free that didn’t fit so I took off the appliques and pearls and am using it for my veil and bouquet

Mine was $400-500 but I made a deal with the salon to sell me the dress, veil, belt, tax, shipping, and alterations all for $3000. Otherwise, it would have been much, much more! The dress itself was around $2200. So, I think I got a great deal!

Jasmine’s is making mine for a VERY reasonable price.
Here’s my inspiration –

$280+ tax. It’s a cathedral length veil with Chantilly lace along the lower half that matches my dress.

I am making mine from a comb I’ll probably find off of ebay for about $10, and the fabric I bought from JoAnne’s (5 yards… 2 went to the bodice of my dress, 3 is going to be my veil) was only $30!
