A headpiece and veil wouldn’t be worth $500 to me, but everyone has different priorities and you have to do what’s right for you.  That being said, it doesn’t sound like the best financial decision, but neither are weddings in general.  ๐Ÿ™‚

You probably have some time to make your decision so shop around and if you still want it as badly a couple months down the line…. then it might be worth the cost to you. Good luck!

Have you tried searching for it online?  You may be able to find the headpiece and veil for a discounted rate.

I’d hold off.  I’ve now made two veils for myself for the wedding at a total cost of $17.  In my veil-making class, one woman made a beautiful lace and tulle cathedral length veil that would have cost $500 anywhere she would have tried to buy it.  Materials cost her $30.

I figure the hair piece is the one thing my future daughter (yeah, I know) might want to wear…so I’m paying around $200 for it.  The veil she’s making is very simple and inexpensive though.  In my case, it’s custom-made by my dress maker to match, and her hair pieces are amazing.  If it weren’t made to match the stones on my dress exactly or her hair pieces were not exquisite, I’d probably search around for something cheaper online.

Two words: "Etsy Alchemy."  See if you can take pictures of them and then you can have them custom-made for you on Etsy.  There are some amazingly talented vendors out there that would only charge you a fraction of that cost.  I’ve had great luck with Etsy vendors and have found some great deals.  Best of luck to you!
