I’m getting married in a month (eek!). I ordered a veil off e-bay and I didnt’ like it. The veil I tried on at my dress shop had a very fine edging of glitz. It was $300 so I decided to see if I could find something similar on e-bay. The veil I got from that site, which was only $20, has huge rhinestones on the edging, which was way too much bling.
Where have you found your veil. I don’t want to spend a lot because I’m not wearing it for long. Has anyone worn the veils you can buy at craftstores? Any suggestions would be great!

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).
