The first veil they put on top of my head was beautiful, lovely….
and cost 1300 dollars!!!!!!!! Seriously!??! 1300 for a piece of tulle organza on a comb!? She was hardcore selling it, and I was loving it, I took it off, looked at the price tag and immediately said there is no way i’m ever going to buy this and shoved it back into her arms.
Maybe someone can afford that, but that is more expensive than my dress, and my dress was a wedding splurge for me.
Anyone else have a ridiculous experience while shopping?

I had the same experience but mine was only $400. She put it on and I absolutely loved it and then while looking in the hand mirror saw the price. I just don’t have money in my budget to pay for that. I told her it was out of my budget so she brought another one. It was $340.

I had someone at Kleinfelds put a $1000 ribbon/brooch belt on me. It was completely ridiculous. It was literally 3 brooches sewn onto a ribbon. I also had veil shock, veils are more overpriced than the dress/flowers you name it.

You can easily find a great veil for cheaper. My veil was original $200, and I bought it off of another bride for $58. It is gorgeous and matches my dress perfectly, and it was a steal from the original price! Yay! I say try to find one in the WeddingBee Classifieds. It worked for me!

I will add that my Future Mother-In-Law is making mine now after she heard the price of the one I loved, which I am so grateful for. I would have made it but I’m not super great at DIY projects like that. But if you are you should definitely consider that option in addition to looking at the Classifieds and Etsy.

I seriously laughed out loud!! I would never pay that much!
I’m really thinking about buying my veil online from etsy or somewhere, but i’m not quite sure how to go about matching the fabric. Especially since my dress isn’t in yet. Not too sure if the salon would be happy with me coming in with tulle fabric swatches to compare to my sample gown 😉

That is insane! I’ve been looking on Ebay. I really don’t want to spend more than $50. I think it can be done. I’m going to check out some other sites too.

I’m just going to make mine. LOL. I bought a fancy hair comb and I am going to fish line wire it to the tulle. I only plan on keeping it on for the ceremony so I don’t really care if it has lots of detailing on it. Total with the comb and the other supplies, I plan on spending about $20.

That is CRAZY! I can’t believe how much tulle on a comb costs! I bought mine off Etsy and it was about $45 with shipping. I just wanted a simple fingertip length, one-tier, rounded edge veil and I am very happy with the one I bought! A similar veil in a bridal salon around here would cost at least $150!

Wow. Just wow. I bought mine off Ebay for $30 and it was perfect. I only wore it for the ceremony and some pictures, so I couldn’t imagine justifying even $100 for it, let alone $1300!

Well you’ll all think I’m “crazy” then. My veil cost $450. It was custom made with the most amazingly soft tulle and incredible swarovski and pearl beading across the top. I love it.

If it’s in your budget and you have the money, I say it’s not so crazy and if you love it, go for it. I just in no way had the money to buy a $400 veil.

I’m having serious regrets on the $250 veil I purchased, not because of the money, but the lenght. 🙁 The veil only goes about mid-back and I really pictured a full lenght veil. I’m afraid of looking now for full lenght veils because of the sticker shock I got with the mid-lenght one.
