It looks like a drop veil to me.  Veilshop has a 90 inch circle drop veil for $40.

It’s a drop veil- but I can’t tell the length (chapel or cathedral I would guess) because the picture is cropped. 

Probably the most famous one being worn by Grace Kelly!  (Although hers was a mantilla worn like a drop veil)

Make One!!

Just go to JoAnn Fabric and get some 108" tulle and a rotary cutter, fold the tulle in half, then, half again the other way so it’s quartered.  The cut an arc between the two edges – like you would to cut a circle out of paper.  You can secure it you your head with some transparent thread and a metal comb (also @ JoAnn) and it basicly just sits on your head!  I can’t imagine it would cost more than $10 – maybe no more than $5 is you have a coupon!

if you want lace on the bottom it is a mantilla (which can conflict with a busy dress) or you can get a drop/circle veil.  That’s what I had…I don’t know why they aren’t more common, I think they are super romantic!
