Veils are one thing I just could not justify spending a lot of money on. I mean, come on, it’s just a piece of tulle right?
Of course, my mind was changed once I began to research the types of veils that were more expensive, and how intricate and beautiful they were! I was on the verge of buying a mantilla veil, then I changed my mind and decided to make my own.
It’s going to be a plain, borderless chapel length veil (perfet for those flowy, windy pictures!–like Mrs Avocado‘s)…but I’m making it for under $5!

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.

Mr. Lovebird’s aunt was kind enough to make one for me, so its priceless. I hope to pass it to down to my daugther one day.

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!
