How much did your veil cost? Was it worth it?

I used my mom’s veil. She unstitched it from her Juliet cap that she wore for her wedding, and attached it to a comb for me. I wouldn’t have paid much for a veil, to be honest. In hindsight, I didn’t wear it long enough to consider much of an added expense. I would have capped out at $50… If that.

 I’m making my own veil! My fiance fell in love with a stardust veil on etsy but we didn’t love the $900 price tag.  I purchased an ivory chapel length veil on eBay for $15 and Swarovski crystal elements from overseas in bulk. In all, I think I spent $50 plus the time and patience it’s taking to make it.  But, I love it so much more than anything I tried on in a salon and it’s a labor of love that I can pass down.  Picture is the inspiration for the veil…

Mine was a birdcage style, in silk satin and silk dot tulle, the material was gorgeous, it was attached to a band and handmade by a local seamstress. It cost £170. Part of me is horrified i spent so much on such a small thing but you can tell when you look at it that a lot of work and skill went into making it and putting it together and it was perfect with my dress, i think i loved it more than the dress.

Blanca Veils on ETSY was amazing! I paid under $60. It’s just beautiful and excellent quality.

Mine was about $60 USD plus shipping and is a single layer, horsehair trim with a pencil edge. It’s really soft and beautiful. I got it from a shop on Etsy that does custom stuff. Totally worth it I think!

chachamaru :  I spent a year thinking I wanted a Cathedral veil and looking for a cheap 2 tier cathedral lace edge veil was hard… so I bought a cheaper raw edge 2 teir Cathedral veil and was planning on adding lace myself. Like you mentioned, the fabric was stuff and didnt fall as beautifully as the ones at the store that I tried originally. When I went to try on my dress a few days ago my mom encouraged me to try on veils again. I fell in love with a Jennifer Leigh Couture veil, 2 teir fingertip length with just a thin pencil edge. I love the simplicity of it and the weight difference is crazy! It was only $160 which for a bridal store is not bad! I think its worth it if you are planning to wear it for more than just the ceremony. I wouldnt want to be uncomfortable all night!

I love my veil. I did pay a pretty penny for it, but definitely worth it. I paid $165. I’m a poor phlebotomist, so that’s a lot of money for me…
