I got mine for $19 on Etsy- it was a birdcage style though.  I loved it!!

I paid $50 for mine (bought preowned off a local fb page). I ended up not wearing it so it was a waste of money. I thought I overpaid then. There is no way I’d have paid any more. I think I overpaid as it is.

The one I’m eyeing was $550 at the dress shop. I refuse to pay that much for something I’ll wear for all of an hour. I found the same one at a boutique in Downtown LA for $250

I got mine for $10 off of ebay. It looked EXACTLY like the $400 veil the dress store tried to get me to buy. Best wedding buy we made! Oh, it was cathedral length and has a lace trim!

Bought a wrist length veil and a lace wedding dress together from a non profit for autistic children (not in the United States) for a total of $25

chachamaru :  I have no idea what mine was called but it was to my lower back, crystal trim. I paid $250. I wish I had shopped around a bit bc I saw pretty ones on etsy. I was just so excited I bought the items at the bridal shop.

chachamaru :  I think about $15….. I made it! I just wanted a floor length two tier, but didn’t need any trim or beadwork or anything. So I watched YouTube videos, went to Joann fabrics and got some quality tulle, a hair comb, and needle/thread…. thirty minutes later I had my veil 🙂 

They are definitely easy to DIY if you’re interested in something simple.

Mine was $20 for a double fingle tip veil with floral pattern beading around the sides. To me $$ veils are not worth it and were very low priority to me. Mine seemed a bit stiff when I got it and I was worried it looked cheap but I steamed it and it softened and I think it looks as good as the $200 one I tried on in the store.

Mine was $60 from JuliaBellesVeils on Etsy. It’s an English net drape veil, the fabric is beautiful and very soft. Mine is waltz length but she does custom lengths as well.

chapel length from etsy for $59.  Was quoted $300-400 in bridal salons, and that was a big ole nope.

Well let’s just say I splurged a little bit ☺️

Mine is a custom cathedral veil with lace, beading, and hand sewn flowers. It’s quite exquisite. It was about $2500 from the bridal shop (partly because it is custom). It really made the look IMO and budget was not a factor for me. I don’t think I’ll regret it one bit! As my mom says – your back is all guests can see during the ceremony!

chachamaru :  $400 and it was worth every penny 🙂 It was a matching vera wang veil to my vera wang gown so the lace appliques on the veil perfectly flowed into my train 🙂

Mine was $40 from and I bought it on impluse just a few weeks before the wedding. I don’t remember it being itchy, but it was just tulle with rhinetones, no lace or anything like it. I’m glad I bought it but I think I would have regrets if I spent a ton of money on it, especially considering I wore it for maybe 1 hour.

My veil is fingertip length with the entire edge scalloped with silver trim and beading and embellishment. It looks like it was made for my dress. It was $200 at my bridal shop and I had zero intention of paying that much. I was looking on etsy at raw edge for no more than $50. Then my future mother in law came with me to my first dress fitting and insisted on buying the veil for me. The shop was nice enough to give 20% off but still. I LOVE my veil and plan on wearing it a good portion of the day but still would not have paid for it myself.
