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!

beautiful veil, but oh my! Look at that train! It’s beautiful.
whoa! That’s a belt! If it’s the price you regret, perhaps try to sell it afterwards to recup some of the money, but if it’s the look/style you regret, post a picture on the bee (if you haven’t done so yet). I’ve noticed a lot of “regret” posts that turn out to be great and maybe help you change your mind and allow you to see the reasons why you felt in love with your belt to begin with.

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.

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.

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