I had my first dress fitting this week yay!! I was shown a fingertip ivory veil that will be custom made for me. Adding a blusher to the veil I was quoted $275. Is this normal? I loved the veil and it was the softest tulle I have EVER felt but I have to admit I had sticker shock. Anyone else have the same experience? What is a reasonable cost for a veil?

My veil was 220 (and a gift!), for a waltz length mantilla veil.

i think an average price for a veil is between 100 and 200 dollars. espcially at a bridal salon
but i paid 29.99 for mine!

Go to Occansey Designs!! (occanseydesigns.com). I got a cathedral length veil from there for $60, and they have the best customer service.

It sounds a bit high, but not by much. I tried on some fingertip length veils (without blusher) and was quoted anywhere from $160-$200. Look around online and on etsy and you could find a better deal.

don’t buy your veil from a bridal salon! i tried on a plain cathedral for $450…ridiculous. i’m making it for less than $20.
etsy has a lot of great veils under $100, along with the websites pp’s mentioned.

I didn’t wear one down the aisle so I made mine just for pictures, $15

Mine was a simple single tier finger-tip veil with a thin pencil edge… I bought it from a WB-user for $30. 🙂

I made mine and I am not a sewer! It cost $10 plus the cost of nice scissors. It was floor length. I wasn’t willing to spend $200 on something that I wasn’t totally sure I wanted. It worked out great!

I was fortunate b/c my “something borrowed” was my fingertip veil from my friend who couldn’t attend the wedding. So, it was FREE!

Mine would have been $50 but I HAD to have the additional chapel length.. which was totally worth it!! 🙂

I second Occansey Designs. They are here in my home state and she has killer stuff for great prices. She doesn’t have what I was looking for but she is really sweet and most of my friends have used her veils and they are stunning.

I got mine off of ebay for $30. I am only going to wear it during the actual wedding, so I wasn’t about to spend $300 on something to wear for 20 minutes. Check out ebay…mine is pretty, it has beads around the edge so it sparkles!
