I recently bought my dress (yay!) and have turned my attention to accessories.
I have NO IDEA what price veils go for. I would assume, the longer, the more expensive? More details? I found a very pretty cathedral length veil with sparkles in it at the store I bought my dress at but I’d like to order it fingertip length.
Would anyone mind sharing what their veils looked like (or what they considered when looking at veils) and maybe a general price point I should expect?

The veils that I found were pretty expensive (to me at least). I just wanted a one layer fingertip length with a little beading or jewels along the edge and the first one I tried was almost $300!! I ended up finding one at a different store that was similar but it was still $180 and I still hate that I spent that much on a veil. I would try looking for a used one or maybe on etsy to see if you can find a more affordable one.

Hi! I just purchased my dress also (yay!) and am in the same boat as you. I’ve started looking at veils–I think I want to do a fingertip with the scalloped lace trim! There is a lady who lives locally here that MAKES them– all you have to do is purchase the fabric, lace, etc & give them to her. I have a friend that had one made for $8. No lie. and it was gorgeous! I’m just saying–definitely shop around because a lot of bridal salons have them waaay overpriced for what they really are. 🙂

Yea! an excuse to post my veil. I was definitely looking for a mantilla style veil. The more lace/beading the more expensive. Mine was 220 and is “waltz” length. (check out the little girl in a belle costume in the background haha). I was hesitant to buy on etsy because I was worried I’d have trouble matching my ivory dress.

@LGenz:So pretty! It goes beautifully with your dress!! The little girl in the background is too funny!
Thank you for everyone’s advice! I’ll definately try and shop around a bit. I did a quick google of what’s out there and it’s kinda hard to find information about veils… My mom suggested making it today and she is super creative and artistically talented that I think she could pull it off but IDK.

@PinkPinstripes: Oh I think its super easy to make a veil depending on what you’re looking for. Plus, the materials are so cheap (tulle + thread + comb) that you can afford to mess up a few times.

@LGenz: your veil is AMAZING!! i’m having a terrible time looking for a veil (it’s harder than the dress, lol), but yours is beautiful. i wanted a 2 tier mantilla veil. is yours pinned or on a comb? are you wearing them both back or as a blusher too? really pretty!!

If you aren’t looking for a lot of lace and professional (i.e., beyond hobbyist level) detail work, definitely make your own or have a sewing-able friend do it!
Bridal tulle should not be more than a few dollars a yard and you can save so much money just following a pattern and putting your own ribbon edging on the bottom. I’m going to do this and will absolutely post pics. 🙂
denverfabrics.com should have tulle!
