This is my first posting (although I’ve been following your marvelous posts for awhile). I am on the hunt for:
– a fingertip veil,
– with blusher AND
– crystal beading along the border.
I have only seen fingertip veils without blushers (vendors tell me blushers are no longer in demand – but it’s my dream to wear a veil with one). any recommendations, pics, vendors who sell one? I’ve been looking for months now.
The only ones I find with crystals/beasd tend to be floor length or missing the blusher. I need all three components. I know you lovely ladies will have great suggestions for me. Thanks for your help.

I do not know of any veils right now but I will browse and see what I can find 🙂 Could you get it custom made by any chance????

@prettykey: my veil sounds very similar to what you’re looking for. I got mine from the bridal salon where I bought my gown

@prettykey: Mine did! Probably not as many crystals as you’re looking for, but check out Westwood for veils!
I think mine was $130? But I also bought it in a bridal salon (foolish, I know!)

@prettykey: I really wanted a blusher and my bridal consultant suggested that I purchase two veils – one to be the longer “layer” and a shorter one to be the blusher. They’re on seperate combs, so after the ceremony I can take off the long layer and just wear the short one for the first dance, cake cutting, whatever. I was a little skeptical at first but it actually works really well! And when the combs are placed one on top of the other you can’t tell that they aren’t attached. It’s worth a shot!

Make your own veil. It is so much cheaper and will have special meaning, and it is not very hard. If you want beading it is more time consuming but not very difficult, if you want crystal, again time consuming but not hard at all. I made mine fingertip and with blusher, I was debating crystals or beading, but my dress had so much on it as it was I went with a plain viel with sparkly head piece.

David’s Bridal has a ton of veils, and I’d be surprised if they didn’t have what you’re looking for: http://www.davidsbridal.com/Browse_Accessories-Veils-All-Veils-Mid-Length__pageSize-all
At the very least, they have a separate blusher you can purchase too. Good luck!

@Day_In_The_Life: I agree! Make your own. A lady at my work made her daughter’s veil and it was beautiful and saved a ton of money. If I had known how easy it was, I would have made mine too.

My shop sells veils like that. And many veil designers will customize! I’d see if any places local to you sell Richard Designs or Bel Aire veils. Good luck!

@prettykey: DEFFO make you own!!! SOOOOO MUCH CHEEPER – and more personal!!
work out the length you’ll need (fingertip length + blusher length) then buy your material and a comb. most habidasherys will have beading on a strand that you can buy by the foot/meter. buy some of that, attatch and BAM – you have a veil. good luck!x

@BrandNewBride: I really like some of these options! Thank you. I sent them a message for a store location in my area (the store locator button is not working). I will keep you all posted if I find “the one”. Thanks!
