    I paid $450 before tax….much more than I expected to pay.  I knew that I wanted a waltz-length mantilla, and I wasn’t quite happy with any that I tried on.  Finally, the store where I bought my dress special ordered the Sara Gabriel Dahlia veil for me, and it was perfect.  I might consider selling it after the wedding is over…….we’ll see if I can part with it!

    @SimonSaysBride:  It’s a gorgeous belt, just doesn’t go with my theme of the wedding so much. I bought it when I bought my dress and now want more of a pearl, vintage looking belt that this flower one that I have. I will def try to sell it after the wedding as I have no time at the moment to do anything.

    Mine was super simple, which was perfect for my simple dress.

    It was $50 on etsy, midlength.

    @Peanut-Sue:  Yeah that’s horsehair you’re talking about. It’s not real horsehair but that’s what they call it. It’s so expensive because it’s very difficult to work with.

    eTA: veiled beauty on etsy has veils with horsehair that might be cheaper.

    @MrsBuesleBee:  unfortunately in the excitement of the day, we didn’t get many photos of it, here’s the best i could find. lol.

    edging detail:

    me carrying it. finding someone to bead silk tulle is almost impossible, it’s a very delicate fabric and a week before the wedding, the heavy beading was unraveling so my veil designer crafted a type of glue to hold it together. haha.

    the drape. no other veil fabric drapes quite like silk tulle.

    I will be making my veil! I made veils for several of my friends when they or married. All the materials, including Swarovski crystal beads, was never more than $30. Beading them by hand takes time, but it’s a labor of love! <3

    My ivory finger-tip veil was just $10 CAD more than a bird cage veil I was looking at from David’s Bridal. $149 + tax? It’s got Swarovski crystals and pearl applique on it.

    I probably could’ve saved had I known about getting veils from Etsy.

    Here’s a close up of the veil from DB:

    But I love how my veil goes really well with my vintage mantilla lace cap and chosen dress. The veil will come out from the top opening of the lace cap — so, I could draw the single layer veil over my face before the ceremony. When it’s pulled back, I love how it flows like a waterfall of tulle from the top of the cap. 🙂 (Inspired by 1950s)

    Here’s a picture of how the cap looks like, but without the veil — as I don’t want to get hair on it right now.

    I got my waltz-length veil for about $15-20 off eBay. It has some beading and sparkle all around the edge. Up close, you can tell it didn’t cost hundreds of dollars, but I wasn’t picky and I like it 🙂
