- Wedding: July 2012
I ordered Rivoli by San Patrick for my wedding in St Patrick’s Cathedral in NYC. I had recently been to another bridal salon to look at veils and the veil I had fallen in love with (cathedral length with lace trim) was $1200! I walked away with nothing but sticker shock. Today I went to Priscilla of Boston — all of their dresses are $99 – $499… I couldn’t help it and tried on a few, one of them I actually really loved but my friend convinced me not to get it. It was only $499 (retailed for $6000+) but the embroidery needed some work and the dress definitely needed a cleaning.
When I walked over to the veils I was shocked that all of their accessories were either $9.99 or $29.99. I loved two of them. One veil was cathedral length with lace trim from top to bottom with crystals on the flowers. The second is cathedral length, with crystals/lace and diamond trimming all only on the end. Both are ivory. The first veil is from the Priscilla collection and retailed for $950. The second was from the Priscilla Platinum collection and retailed for $2,000. I walked away with BOTH for a mere $29.99 each!! Can’t decide which one I like (or even if they will match my dress). My dress isn’t in until February so I might just have to go to the store to try on the whole ensemble!
