I ordered a custom cathedral veil with lace edging from one of the custom shops talked about in the replica threads. I paid about $100 for it. It’s gorgeous and even if I decide not to wear if (haven’t had a chance to try it on with my dress yet), it was worth the price for me.

I’m getting my veil made by blanca veils on etsy. The pricing is reasonable and you can get swatchs to feel out the tulle and lace

I got mine off etsy for $99. I was really worried because of the no returns policy, but I’m so glad that’s what I did. It’s beautiful, handmade, and better quality than what looked like the exact same veil for $400 at a bridal shop.

I’m getting mine from etsy, quoted £275 for a veil, it’s a bit of fricken material so arse that noise, paying £60-80 instead

salon let me pick a veil at no additional cost with the purchase of my dress. I opted for something simple.

For what it’s worth. I got married 29 years ago and had my ensemble made by a seamstress. I wanted a very specific look, modeled after my grandmother’s 1929 ensemble. Didn’t cost me much. I think the headpiece was around $30; it was a sort of stiff half hat or Juliet cap. I bought little white flowers to sew onto the sides near my temples. I had three veils: A face veil for the church, a shoulder length for the reception and a detachable cathedral length. I think the seamstress just told me to get bridal illusion veil.

Etsy might be your best bet, or if you are craft or know someone who is, they could make it for you.

Mine was about $100 from etsy. When I first received it I thought it was a bit stiff, but as soon as I steamed it, it was soft and flowy. Definitely worth it to me!

Mine is a fingertip length.  My mom spent WAY too much.  She insisted that it was perfect and it matched the dress.  It was over $150 for a single later with beading around the edge.  

I still cringe when I think about it.  I wanted to go on Etsy.  Mom wasn’t having it.
