Totally check out Etsy!  There are so many already-made designs that are really versatile and beautiful, so even if you don’t have time for a custom design, you could purchase a pretty veil you’ll love for your weddiing!

I used veilshop.com and had really good luck.  I had a super simple veil, but they have some with a little bit of edging or bling as well if that’s what you’re looking for.  I believe mine was right around $40.  Good luck!

I went to a veil making class yesterday.  If everyone knew how stinking easy it was to make a veil (birdcages are the exception), then no one would buy veils anymore.

Seriously, it is the easiest DIY project out there.  You can get the pattern at a fabric store, but you really don’t even need one.  I could probably walk you through how to make one if I knew what you wanted.  It’s fun.  I spent $4 on materials and I have a huge sense of accomplishment.

My classmate made a cathedral length mantilla in the class time (3 hours) and it looks as good as the pros.  Total cost for materials $30.

The other classmate made a scalloped finger tip with a blusher.  Total cost for materials $9.

Let me know if you need more detailed information!

I needed a veil quick and went the route of doctorgirl.  We bought the supplies for like $4.  My sister made my veil in like 2 hours.  Maybe you could try to DIY your veil.

Wow, DIY veil sounds like a great idea! That would make it even more special. What a keepsake! I think that would be something you could even pass down in your family. Great idea, doctorgirl and mklove!

I got my veil online from Occansey Designs–lots more options than Veil Shop, and similar prices.  My chapel length veil, with ribbon trim, was $100.  It arrived today and is beautiful.  Not being at all crafty, I didn’t want to make my own veil!  (I saved $100 buying it online instead of from the bridal shop).
