What are you paying for your veil? Someone offering to make me one for £70 but there is a 25 percent offer if I order within the next 5 dats or so. I still think it’s a lot of money for something that will be worn for an hour. I have seen them for about a tender on eBay but dubious about the quality on that one but just wondering what you bees are prepared to pay? Mine is for a 2 tier cathedral length plain edge in a soft tulle.

aleachay: Mine was $450, before the discount, $250 after. However, mine has a lot of bead work on it.

Veils are really, really easy to make, especially if you want something with a plain edge. Lace or beading is a little more complicated, but still – the markup on these items is typically really outrageous. Would you consider DIYing it? You would only need to spend the cost of materials. The comb you attach it to can be bought for pocket change, and then you just need to decide what type of tulle to use. Silk tulle can be a bit pricey, but most types of tulle are not expensive at all.

aleachay: veils really are stupidly expensive, but it fell in love with mine so I ponied up. Mine is a two tier cathedral with lace appliqués with swaravzski crystals and pearls and scalloped edging. It was $600 but I paid $450 thanks to a discount and credit at the store.

Mine was $238. Too expensive? yes, but it has a lovely lace detail and I loved it with my dress.

For a plain veil, that’s pretty riddiculous! (but what stores charge because they can) You could make it yourself for under $20 and its super easy.
