Madame Tulle on Etsy for $99 and I loved mine.

Just a thought – I seen veils (without beading or bling) reused over a baby’s crib.

I could never justify spending hundreds of dollars on a veil that is essentially fabric right off the loam (loom?) with lace around the edges. That is just me personally. I bought 2 from china and will probably end up reselling them on FB because I probably wont do a veil, but I wasn’t too picky about it (and would only be wearing it for pictures, so scratchiness wasn’t something I even thought of!).

If you didn’t like the china one, what about one from etsy? I’ve seen a few that are $100-$200 that are still really nice. Might be a nice compromise.

Mine is finger tip length, ivory with rose gold decorations around the edges, one tier,m and cost $275 (I live in a small town in the Midwest…that makes a big difference generally).  I originally said a big ole NOPE to an expensive veil because I didn’t think it was worth it but then my salon got this one in and it was just beyond perfect…so I of course said yes.  

 

IMO: worth it, BUT my mother is paying for my whole ensemble.  My dress was $2,500 belt was $380 and veil was $275…if I had been paying them my dress would’ve been less than $500 with no belt and a cheap veil.  It’s all relative and I would’ve been just as happy with the cheaper outfit if I hadn’t had the option to buy the “better” items.

I ordered a custom single-tier, lace-lined cathedral veil from my dress’ designer for around $1200. Unfortunately, I realized too late that I prefer the look of a drop veil, so I’m probably going to get a second veil. Britten sells silk-style tulle veils at really affordable prices (around $200 for what I want), so I’ll probably go with one of theirs for my second veil. I’d just add a blusher to the original veil, but I’m certain that would cost more than just getting a whole new one!

I’m making my own fingertip length with the extra lace trim from my dress so it matches (that was $50, but most of it was added to the dress during alterations) and I went to the fabric store and bought some soft tule for about $5. If you’re crafty or a sewer, look into making your own! Aside from being really cost effective, it’s something special that I get to do with my mom 🙂

Mine was quite pricey but the lace matched my dress perfectly so I couldn’t say no! It was $1,500.

I got mine off Etsy and loved it.  It was elbow length and didn’t bother me at all and only cost $20.

Mine was $200 in the Southeast but when I bought my dress last July they said they were throwing them in for free if you bought your dress at your first appointment. I wouldn’t have purchased it separately.

I’m making my veil my something borrowed. It matches and I save money. Win win!

chachamaru :  Mine was $300 fingertip length with beading on the edge. Honestly, I didn’t even want a veil, but my Godmother bought it for me as a gift because she loved how it looked, so I will wear it just for the ceremony. I don’t think it was worth that amount of money.

I bought a cathedral length Leeann Belter $700+ veil for $200 on preownedweddingdresses.com. It MADE my bridal look and I thought it was very worthwhile!
