I’m not sure if I am wearing a veil but if i do I’d like it to be very simple. Has anyone seen a Mantilla veil with no lace, just a raw edge? Another way of describing it would be to say an oval, raw edge, single tier veil with no gathering at the comb. But…Not a drop veil, I don’t want a blusher or anything draped over my face.
Is this a thing? Does it exist? Did you have one? Id love to see pictures and get suggestions on where to buy one (local bridal store didn’t have anything close.)

For something like this – don’t buy one! It’s the easiest thing in the world to DIY. Just go to a fabric store, buy yourself the appropriate length of tulle or netting in the color you want, cut the corners into an oval shape (or find someone to do it for you, if you don’t trust yourself) and whip-stitch it to a comb (again, if this is beyond your sewing capabilities, you should be able to find someone who can help you out.) You can have a veil like this for pennies on the dollar without ever setting foot in a bridal shop. Unless you WANT to pay an exorbitant amount of money for a piece of raw tulle, a comb, and six inches of thread.

Sigh, I’ve looked on etsy but I can’t find any that were quite right. Also I’m worried if I get one custom made it won’t work with the dress and I’ll waste my money. Hmmm.

I second the DIY idea. There are tons of tutorials online as well- try youtube or just googling it.
