hey bees! so yesterday i finally got to try on my wedding dress in my size! yipeeee!!!! and i tried on a few veils to try to get an idea of what length would look right with my dress..i looked at the price tags and wooo! they were like 200 dollar veils…i mean that seems like ALOT to me…first question how much did you spend on your veil??
second question, are you using a blusher? and lastly when you see tiered veils, do they count as blushers? or are they different?
i’m a bit confused and i plan on buying my veil online bc they are super cheap and i do not plan on wearing it for very long after the ceremony. but i do want a blusher, so if i buy a 2 tiered veil is that the same thing??
Thanks for your help bees!

@sharky: I bought a 2 tier and its the same as a blusher. 🙂

A blusher is the bit that goes over your face. It can either be an extra layer, or you can wear a long, single tier veil so that the front of it goes over your face. That way, it’s called a drop veil.
If you don’t want too much detail on your veil, I’d make your own. It’s very cheap and easy. However, if you want expensive materials, I would go with an online dressmaker. I used Jasmines, and it would have worked out cheaper than making it myself, for the quality.

My veil was expensive but then again it was a cathedral length, extra wide, and covered in crystals/beads. You can find very nice and reasonably priced veils on Etsy.
As far as a blusher, no I’m not wearing one. They just aren’t my thing. I don’t like things in my face and it always drives me crazy when the father flips the blusher and doens’t flatten it out and there’s this big poof of tulle on the back of the bride’s head lol.
That being said, you can obtain the blusher look in two ways. You can get a 2 layer veil and the short layer acts as the blusher. You can always get a drop veil. Here is a thread that talks about drop veils in case you don’t know what they are. http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/drop-veil-1#axzz2O11yHKLl

My veil was probably about $5. I made it myself, though it’s a birdcage veil.
