I ordered mine from JJs House. It was about $30 and it’s great. Also, at least 2 of my friends have offered to loan me their veil.

It’s just tulle, which is sooooo cheap to buy. The veil they wanted to sell me at DB was half the cost of the dress. No, thank you. 

For $28, take a chance at the one you want. You can probably send it back, or take a loss if you don’t like it.

I ordered this veil from Etsy

It was about $350  but I kept dreaming about it and finally splurged.

I jumped the gun on this and actually bought a veil from JJsHouse for $20.  2 tier, cathedral length, soft tulle in ivory.  I bought it to go with my dress, Vera Wang Gemma.  I didn’t want the veil to have any embellishments or design.  Just plain.  

However, with shipping, the cost went up to $40.  I thought, “ooook I guess – since this was coming from China.  THEN I received my package and it had a COD fee of $30!  So really this $20 veil cost me $70!  UGH!

The veil is waaay to long and I think I will have to “modify” it.  I hope it turns out the way I want it to because I don’t want to buy another.  I plan to wear it only for the ceremony as well.

On average at bridal shops, I’ve seen veils starting at $100 (very plain and short) to very extravagant & long veils that can cost up to $500 and to me that’s ridiculous for some piece of fabric I will only wear for 30 mins. 

Just make sure you are paying $28 and nothing more.  But, if you’re willing to take the risk and buy it, and not LOVE it, just be prepared to get disappointed and possibly buy something else.

I don’t plan to return mine, but I do plan on altering it myself so I can be 100% happy with it.  Right now I’m 80% liking my veil.  At the end of the day, I guess that $70 veil isn’t so bad after all.

I ordered a raw edge fingertip veil from etsy for $23.00 including shippping. I love it! Since you are looking for a plain veil, I would suggest going for the less expensive option!

I took a risk and bought mine on eBay for less than $10 (also shipped from China)… I’m 5’3″ and the veil is also way too long for me. I’ll probably just use a pair of fine scissors and cut off the end to make it shorter. If I mess up then I’ll just buy another one at $10 and start over lol.

But overall I’m happy with the quality. Granted, it’s not AS nice as the ones I’ve tried on at the bridal boutiques, but I’m not paying $200 for a plain cathedral veil!

Elcey:  Just take it to your alterations appointment and see if they’ll cut it for you/for how much.

ETA: Good find!!

I got mine from DB’s for $140 ish. I first ordered a $20 veil from amazon but it was so stiff and cheap looking. The one from DB’s has beading along the edges and is 2 tiered and fingertip length. I love it!
