    I know it may sound corny but I really wanted a veil that is classic only because I am hoping that my daughter will wear it for her wedding

    I just bought a veil from occanseydesigns.  I was hoping to spend under $50 for a chapel length veil but with the cording, comb, and shipping, the total came out to $74.  The same one at my bridal shop retailed for $150, so half is not bad 🙂

    A friend of the family is actually making 2 veils for me for $75. She’s making me a birdcage veil to wear, and also a cathedral veil so I can get flowy veil pictures too! The wedding will be on the river so there’s sure to be lots of wind! I probably could have just made them myself for cheaper, but I figured it was better to buy from a professional than waste time trying to make it myself, since I have NO IDEA how to make one.

    Latte- under $5!! That’s amazing. Rock on wit yo crafty self. 🙂

    I can’t get over how overpriced veils are in bridal stores! Its toile (which sells for $2/yd), a plastic comb, and (if you’re lucky) some beading and/or lace.

    I had my seamstress make my 2 tiered, medium length veil. After materials and "labor," it was less than $20. Definitely the way to go! No one ever knows the difference.

    It was hard to justify mine too! I only wanted to spend $100, was budgeted for more, but didn’t want to spend that. I ended up paying $160 and it was on sale… which is even more sad. Mine is chapel length and I am really happy with its simplicity, but again, like you said… kind if pointless!

    I will be borrowing mine for my SIL.  I think she spent around 150 for it though.

    I was planning on having my aunt make mine, but when I tried on the matching veil to my dress my sister offered to buy it for me then and there.  It’s has a scalloped edge and the same seed pears scattered on the veil as on the dress.  I paid nothing for it, but my sister paid $280 for it.

    My dress came it so late that I wasn’t sure what kind of veil would look with it, so I didn’t have time to order from online and ended up paying way too much for one at the bridal salon.  You all got some great deals!
