Sometimes the markup is due to the designer brands on the accessories. Also veils can be made from different materials, popularly bridal illusion, English net and silk tulle (prices go up from left to right) and the Kleinfeld veil may be made from the latter two. They are softer and drape better than bridal illusion (which holds its shape better)

The etsy one is made from bridal illusion. You can tell by comparing the shapes that the veil is weaved in – bridal illusion has a diamond shape weave and the English net and silk tulle both have hexagonal weave. I can’t see the Kleinfeld one too clearly so I can’t be sure though!

nowthisistaken :  it may be the same design, but i doubt it’s the same veil. the one from kleinfeld is likely made with actual pearls, glass rather than plastic beads, etc. in other words, it’s the upscale designer version of the veil and as such carries a heftier price tag. that said, if you found one that’s nearly identical on etsy, then go for it!
