    @Evie19: The nylon tulle never feels as nice as the silk but what I love is that the nylon usually stands up a bit more and has more depth. Have someone take photographs with you in both styles (hopefully without having to buy both) and then assess the photos for which one looks better. 🙂

    Is there a price issue for you, or is that inconsequential? 

    Nylon, as a general rule, is going to have more of a sheen to it than silk. Can you post links to these veils? It would probably help us help you if we could see what you’re looking at.

    @Evie19: do you like the veil to have more poof or not? nylon (like sfchick said) is stiffer and will stand up more. if you want it to be more natural, get the silk. if i were you, i’d go ahead and return it and then make a decision when you’re not as rushed since you have plenty of time

    i would stick to the nylon. you’re only going to wear the veil for about an hour, so i would save the extra money. there’s not really that much of a difference unless you’re up close and touching the veil.

    I think stick with the Nylon, I think the veil wont be on very long and the money is best spent elsewhere.

    @kitzy: I agree.  Save your money here and splurge elsewhere.

    I have a french silk tulle veil and it was worth the splurge to me. Do you like the crystals? I would never recommend putting anything on a silk veil, it will run. They usually leave them as raw edge because the silk cannot hold up to sewing.

    If you just want a simple elegant veil, than I say go for the silk. IMO totally worth a splurge!

    I would just keep the nylon veil you have.. no one can really tell the difference.

    Personally I would keep the nylon. Your veil isn’t going to be on that long anyway.  They both look nice but I do like the nylon one little better.
