laurbar11:  Perhaps try David’s Bridal since you can see and touch the veil first? Some other Bees have had good experiences with Etsy shops online (but you will need to take a chance without knowing the quality before you receive it).

Just commenting to follow, I’m in the same boat!

ETA: If you’re just looking for something simple I found this on etsy for under $30, which I will probably purchase if I don’t find anything better. https://www.etsy.com/listing/150771545/1-layer-elbow-length-veil?ref=sr_gallery_13&ga_search_query=veil&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery

I got mine at the salon that I bought my dress at. They had a deal where I got a $100 store credit when I bought my dress, and knew I’d probably use that on either a veil or jewelry. I ended up getting a veil and only paid $20 – so it was $120… and WAY more than I think some of them are worth!

I did search on Etsy, but was worried on how they would look/feel once I got them. It was nice to actually try them on (even with my dress) to know if they would look good or not.

Many of the reviews also contain pictures of the delivered veil if you’re wordered about ordering from china.

laurbar11:  I was going to get one from David’s until I found out it was $200. Then I went on Amazon and found one identical to it and only paid $10.00 and it looks just as good as the $200 one if not better. That is where I also brought my ringbearer’s pillow for .99 cents and my flowergirls’ basket for $2002

laurbar11:  I got a basic veil from https://www.etsy.com/shop/GothiXXbyElena?ref=l2-shopheader-name 

The veils range from $20 – $50, I believe. I personally have a champagne dress, so it was difficult for me to find a champagne or beige veil. But the seller above definitely has beige, which works with a champagne dress. 

I ordered my veil on Feb 22, and received it by March 7, so shipping is pretty reasonable.

If you aren’t a big fan of traditional veils, what about just doing a hairpiece or a birdcage veil?

I always assumed I would wear a veil until I tried on on with my dress and it just made me feel uncomfortable and I really really disliked it. 

So now I’m 90% sure I’m not wearing a veil.  The problem with this site is there are so many ladies wearing gorgeous dress/veil combos and it makes me second guess my choice to go no veil. 

But ultimately I’m probably going to stick with it.  I’m making a lace and rhinestone hairpiece to wear day of.

Have you considered buying the materials and having a seamstress make you one? 

My materials were under $7 and my alterations lady charged me $25. 

Mine is fingertip length with a raw edge since my dress is so intense.
