$30 cathedral length from Etsy. 

$60 lace appliqués to add a design on the bottom. 


They tried to get me to purchase a veil for $315 at the store. 


I just cant justify spending a lot on a veil. It’s not like I can ever use it again.

chachamaru :  So… my veil has cost me £295. That’s a lot more than I anticipated haha

However, the lace goes perfectly with my dress, and it was a custom order so that it could be turned into a 2 tier rather than a 1 tier.

My Wedding isn’t until the end of the month, but I think they look lovely together.

chachamaru :  I thought mine was gorgeous. None of the bridal stores had exactly what I wanted so I found it on Etsy for 1/8th of the price. It was absolutely worth the price I paid but  I don’t think it would be worth more. After my wedding day I realized how little a lot of these things that seem so big actually impact your day. My veil looks gorgeous (imo) and I’m ecstatic I didn’t spend hundreds.  It was soft white tool with rhinestones all the way through out.

I bought 3 veils! Uugh. The most expensive one ($250) is a fingertip lace edged by Giselle that i bought at boutique where i got my first dress… caught up in the moment and mom loved it!! Lol

My second dress was champagne tone and didn’t like w the original veil so got champagne tone raw cut fingertip veil on Etsy for $45. Decided i wanted ivory chapel length and will be the one I’ll wear….got that on etsy also $45. I have two veils to sell now….three after the wedding!! Lol

chachamaru : My veil was I think from memory about £200 – I’m not sure what that equates to in dollars. It was a two tier veil here’s a pic below. During the photos a couple of people must have stood on it and when the wind blew it caused a couple of holes, but I did find having one worth it, it completed the look for me and made me feel very bridal.

Mine was 400 I believe. It’s elbow length with flowers embroidered into it. Matches the dress and I believe it clips into one of the dress layers so it doesn’t fly all over the place. It’s gorgeous. I didn’t plan on spending that much but oh well.

I wore a waltz/ballet length raw-edge drop veil and paid $60. I ordered off Etsy from CassandraSilvestro and I loved it.

Ordered a single tier, fingertip length, ivory veil from Etsy. Tops $35. Did the job, looked great with my dress, got lost on honeymoon night. Thank God I didn’t consider overspending on this. I also took it off during the dinner so I wore it for about an hour.

I was quoted $350 for a veil at the bridal shop. So I bought mine from Etsy for $70. The lace and tulle were incredibly soft and the woman was amazing to work with. It was worth it.

$800 + from Aire Barcelona, it was perfect and totally worth it!  It had the same lace as my dress and the lenght was perfect for my look! I just wore it for the ceremony (catholic) and loved it for walking down the aisle! It was heavy but not uncomfortable. After the pictures with Darling Husband I took it off

chachamaru :  $15 on e-bay. I will never wear it again, and wore it just for the ceremony. Looked fine. Think it was totally worth it.
