I agree that $400 is A LOT for a veil. Usually the max that I see is $150-200. You can find beautiful ones online for a heck of a lot cheaper. If you love it and can afford it, then keep it… if you are on a budget, then I suggest looking for a different one. It is also common to not wear one at all. It is COMPLETELY up to your personal preference. Good luck and keep us posted with what you decide to do. 🙂

I agree with hisMrs, I orignally wasn’t going to wear a veil but i decided to poke aroujnd online and found a veil i absolutley fell in love with. I bought it from seller AnnMarieBridal http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6381101  I paid only 25.00 dollars for mine with a $6 shipping fee, it came withing the week and very nicely packed and she even sent me a thank you note. I do think that $400 is quite a bit for a veil, but like hisMrs said if you can afford it go for it

If you can make your own, it’s super cheap- or use etsy or ebay. I never saw one for $400- the most I saw in bridal stores was $150. BUT- I had a friend get married last year who had a fantastic veil, and it was up there in price.

Some veils can be veeeeery expensive, but if you want to put in the work you can definitely get one for cheaper. Try veilshop.com, they have a build-your-own veil feature, and most of the ones on there are around $40-$50 or cheaper!

You can get a cheaper veil, but there is DEFINITELY a difference. The quality of the fabric is definitely different, as well as how ornate the veil is.

 Mine ended up being, don’t scream (or judge for that matter) $800. But seriously, it could kick just about any other veil’s butt.

 Yet, I know some people just care about having something white hanging over their face when they walk down the aisle and that’s it. So, its just about where your priorities lay. My veil really makes my dress.

Wow. my dress was less than $500! I tried on a veil I liked for $500, but no way was I ever going to spend my hard earned money on that! I bought mine on ebay! It’s not insanely intricate, but simple white tulle with some swarovskies on the end. I’m getting married outside, and I don’t want to wear it after the ceremony, so I only spent $30 on it and I could care less!

First let me say … I can understand how you feel.  I am in school this semester and getting married at the end of May (I have no idea what I was thiking, I should have taken a semester off but o-well)…

As for the veil, I would have to agree that $400 is outrageous and its so sad that people hear "bride" and all of a sudden a square foot of tulle is more expensive than your dress.  I went to the bridal shop that I bought my dress and figured out what veil I wanted and then ordered it from veilshop.com and I couldnt be more happy.  It was $35.00 and worth every little cent… Hope This Helps

Wow, what a great dress!  I honestly think that with such a unique design and look a veil might take away the focus from the dress.  Have you considered other hair accessories like flowers (real or felt) or something?  I don’t have any good suggestions, I guess for a veil.  I just think that you could definitely not wear a veil with this dress and it might look even more spectacular.

I agree with Mrs. Spring.  Your dress is spectacular… No, it takes spectacular to a new level.  I don’t know that you want to distract from that.  What about a fascinator with a flower and some feathers?  If you do decide to go veil, I would think you would want to do something simple with a very Greek goddess kind of look…  but really, I vote no veil.

Did I mention I love your dress?  Because I do!

WOW on the dress… it is so unique and beautiful.. I would have to vote no veil actually. I love the idea of a flowers / feathers from Mrs Spring and doctorgirl.. great ideas!! 

And I second the dress on the wow factor!!!!

Yeah that dress is incredible — I would definitely throw my vote in for just skipping out on a veil and getting some kind of flower hair thing.

Incredible dress! Wow. I definitely dont think you’d want a veil covering that baby up. I also agree with a hair flower, swarovski crystal hair clips or even a birdcage veil. Definitely check out http://www.etsy.com
