I’m in the same boat… Looking for a simple, yet elegant veil that I’m not going to spend a fortune on!

While I was roaming the wedding bee boards I ran across other bees recommending Occansey Designs. They can customize a veil for you, not to mention their website has ALL kinds of info on fabric types, styles, lengths, cuts, etc. I am waiting on my fabric samples that I ordered from Kathy to see which color and fabric looks best with my dress. She was very prompt and communication was great! 

Check them out! They also have testemonials and pictures of real brides in their customized veils.

vct258s at Davids Bridal is my Veil. I love it. It’s very simple. They have supposedly discontinued it but I literally tried it on last night. So, I don’t think they have. Good luck!

@splatt11x: you’re very welcome! I actually was curious how long it would take so I emailed her (Kathy) and she replied almost immediately! This is what I was told:

For timing – it depends on the type of veil — most veils we create are done within about 2 weeks of ordering.  If if requires a special order lace, new embroidery, or a heavily beaded design these can be up to 4-6 weeks.

Within the U.S. Priority  mail shipping just takes 2-4 days to arrive, and then Express is 1-2 days.

Glad I could help!

@splatt11x:I totally understand about the placement of the comb affecting the length of my veil. I want my veil to sit lower as well.

Well, I’m still waiting on the fabric samples (I want to make sure I get the right shade for my dress..)But, that being said I am really leaning toward doing the plain edge cut (it looks so soft, wispy, and feminine with this I think), probably the sheer fullness (54″), and I’m wavering between standard, angel and mantilla with gathers style. I probably want it anywhere from 36-42″.

The veil I tried on and fell in love with (that was $270 btw) had scattered small rhinestone details throughout. It was just enough to catch the light when you moved every once in awhile. I think I’d like to add those too :o)

What styles/cuts/etc are you feeling pulled toward?

@splatt11x: I totally understand. the first time I started really looking at this site I was totally overwhelmed. I wasn’t sure what to do, so I put a post up on here. Go figure…lol

Here it is: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/well-it-seems-im-veil-fabric-illiterate

Hope some of these other bee’s explainations will help you as well!

I was told bridal illusion is the one that’s usually used in veils… And that’s what they send you with the samples. There is one bee in my post who tells you in order thinnest fabric to heaviest…

@splatt11x: My samples came in the mail! I’m so excited! The colors are a very subtle difference, and the bridal illusion fabric is just what I had in mind!

And I’m actually kind of fond of the glimmer fabric. It has a very pretty sheen to it :o)

It’s either that or light ivory! Yay!
