I decided to order the veil from esty! Rohm is her usename! I’m so excited! I just hope it looks good with the dress. I am also purchasing extra lace from her to put on my dress, because I am unhappy with my dress and wish I never bought it…*SIGH*…but I think putting lace on the boobage area (I do not know the correct term!) will make me like it a lot more!! perhaps love….I hope so!!
I’ll let everyone know how the veil turns out! It was 280 for cathedral length, so not too bad. A LOT better than 800, which was the quote from my bridal store where I got my gown!

I went onto ebay and found a mantilla elbow length veil for around $50.00. It has lace detailing and everywhere that I went they would ask for around $200-$300.

About the price, I did a lot of research on it, so there are some issues to consider:
(1) type of tulle used
The standard in the US is “bridal illusion”, which is the cheapest material you can find. In Europe, veils are more often made of cotton tulle (English netting), which is more expensive. Also, some people go for silk tulle, the most expensive (this is the case for couture designer veils).
Here you can find an article explaining the differences amongst these fabrics in details.
Depending on what type of tulle is used the veil can be very cheap or very expensive.
(2) type of lace used
More often than not, mantilla veils have an Alencon lace trim. In the US, oftentimes what is used is imitation Alencon (the cheapest), NOT the real thing. Of course, if what is used it’s imitation Alencon and not French Alencon the veil can be considerably cheaper than usual, however you are NOT getting the “real thing”.
(3) the length of the veil
The longer the veil is, the more material (tulle, lace) is used, the more it will cost.
(4) the embellishments of the veil
Rhinestones and pearls add to the price.
So the bottom line is: there is NO “right price” if that’s all you know about the veil. You need to know what fabric and what lace are used and THEN you can compare prices. The could sell you a bridal illusion with imitation Alencon for $300 which would probably be way too expensive, or they could sell you the “real stuff” and it could be a bargain!

My grandmother is going to be making my mantilla. We did price the alecon lace I want on the edge and it was about $4 a yard. But depending on the dress I decide to get, we may get a lace that matches the dress lace.
