    Made my own raw-edged tulle veil for ~$10.

    There’s no poll option for me. I made my own birdcage veil for about $3.

    Mine was included with the sale of the dress as an incentive to buy. They had hundreds of styles available, and I selected an elbow length single layer ivory viel with a thin rhinestone edge. No pic, sorry!

    I can’t vote because with the 20% off coupon from the Sunday paper, it was less than $10 at Michaels!  Double layer, rolled edges.  I think veils are a perfect example of how some people try to gauge brides.

    I fell in love with a lace veil at the bridal shoppe, but when I saw the pricetag I was really disappointed. I decided to make my own veil.

    I bough a $20 plain fingertip veil off Etsy and some lace trim for $7/yard and sewed the lace on the veil. It turned out really nice and wasn’t very complicated.

    @Beezysbreezy:  Oh man! I was hoping it wasn’t that shop, haha. I found her the other day and saw the vacation note. That veil is gorgeous for sure!

    Mine was $340 in the salon, but I found it online for $130. It’s fingertip length with a french alencon lace/beaded edge.

    @SouthernGirl:  If you buy a veil at a craft store (like I said, I got mine at Michael’s, I think Joanne’s has them too– mine was made by Wilton), there may be nothing crafty you you need to do.  My edges were finished, and it was already gathered.  It even came with a comb, and loops on the veil to slide onto the comb.  To be extra safe, I sewed it onto the comb, but it took less than 5 minutes and was much easier than sewing buttons.  And even if I’d messed it up, I sewed it on “upside down” so you couldn’t see the attachment at all, just the tulle.  There was no way to mess it up if I tried!  It was wrinked from being in the bag, but I put it under the shower and ta-da, no more wrinkles.

    Mine was $125. I forget what brand it was but it had two tiers, scalloped edges, and flowers (which matched my dress PERFECTLY) on the bottom tier.

    @SouthernGirl:  Mine is usually $50 but I got it on sale for $20. I just can’t see spending more than that on a piece of tulle I’ll only be wearing for an hour tops. They all look the same and have the same effect.

    mine was on sale for about $250… cathedral length with scalloped edges and swarovski crystals.   Beautiful but def pricey.  Hoping my little sister will use it on her big day so we can get our money’s worth lol
