Well.. my veil. I hated my dress so my veil was my pièce de résistance. I got it on Etsy from Sibo Designs. It cost $275, but I also had like $75 in rush order fees since I needed it in 4 weeks. The seller was shipping from Amsterdam, or something. I don’t know.. yeah it was a lot of money. It was a chapel length veil with full lace detail on top, like a juliet style. In fact, here’s a picture of my love! (Ok fine, two)

ETA: Did come with a blusher.

@star_dust:  I am in love with her store. I cannot wait until THE DAY gets closer and I can finally choose one!! Originally I was like, eh? tulle? 10 dollars, please… but LOOK AT THAT JULIET CAP! THE LACE!  I found some similar and cheaper…but do you think the quality was worth the price from SIBO? In LOVE I tell you!

Too too too much. I fell in love with a mantilla veil and blew $200, after scoring a discount on my dress. Sigh.

Depending on what you want, you could make a veil for as little as $5, if you’re crafty. My Boyfriend or Best Friend bought an inexpensive tulle one, found beads that matched her dress, and made hers that way. Not sure if that helps?

@love108:  Wait, you also want Sibo!? Yes her quality is excellent. She was so accommodating of me, perfecting the fit of the veil with the blusher so it could go over my face before she sent it out to me. I was also looking at cheap veils (originally mantilla) and then started looking at REALLY expensive ones. I never thought my mom would go for a $275 veil, but go she did. The tulle was soft and luxurious feeling. It laid smooth and flat. I literally broke out in rashes from the disgusting veils DB and random bridal shops plopped on my head. Granted, those are just the ones they keep on the floor to “jack you up” with, but they were horrible quality. My “Touch of Love” lace veil (yes, name of my veil) was seriously good quality. 

You should go to the Sibo website and look under BLOG at her Real Brides section. There is actually a bride there that has my same veil, and other brides who ordered different pieces from her so you can see how they look.

@star_dust:  Yeah, won’t be getting married for over 2 years… but a girl’s gotta dream! I’ve got that veil, and some other seller’s veils that are lace and caps, in my etsy favorites…. I’m hoping she can make a shorter version of it when my time comes, not only to save some money, but I never saw myself in the full cathedral anyway! Thanks for your pictures, and sorry to the OP for thread jacking….

I didnt realize you could buy used veils or veils from other places so I bought mine with my dress and it was around $300. I bought a second one (my first is a cathedral just for the ceremony) from another bee for $35!

It depends on what you want. You can google/ebay search for veils and i’ve seem them as cheap as $70. Also, depending on where you order your dress some places throw in a veil for free. I got my cathedral length veil with fingertip length blusher for free when I ordered my dress.

hope this helps!

Mine was originally $129 but the place I bought my dress takes $100 off each veil if you purchase the dress there. It falls a little below my waist. I wish I had a picture of it, but it fits my dress wonderfully. And they are each handmade by an Amish lady so they workmanship is just beautiful.I bought my dress in Amish Country.

I live in Ohio, about 30 minutes from Amish Country and they always advertise veils. I would suggest finding an Amish woman to do it  if you live near an Amish community because they really are so pretty and done by hand!

I paid $150 for mine and I don’t really want it.. got suckered into it by the store, but it got me 10% off my dress so in the end it was practically free. Will be selling it online once the store figures out where it is Undecided

I got mine on Etsy for $35! It’s just a simple finger tip length, one tier veil. I wanted something simple and affordable.

Mine was $150. It was a plain single layer cathedral length veil.

I’m making my veil.  I’m still playing around with how much volume I want to give it and whether I want to put a trim on it.  I like the plain cut edge, but I dunno…. I made a two tiered veil, but you can’t really see the double layers without a trim. But anyway, I spent $3 for two yards of tulle…. 5 bucks for a comb, and about $5 for the trim.  So about $15.  $10 bucks if I return the trim stuff.
