Does anyone have any suggestions on where I can find an inexpensive birdcage veil? As I’ve researched, I can’t seem to find a decent birdcage veil with a nice fascinator for less than $50-$75. Is this the going rate? Please help! I have 2 weeks before my wedding! Thanks!

I just bought my veil from the etsy seller annleslie and am very happy with the veil and her customer service. She was also happy to custumize an order for me, so ask if you want that!

I got one from ebay/etsy seller, but I think I paid about $45.00 or so-so not much savings. I have seen DIY instructions for them. If you or somebody you know is crafty I know it would be very inexpensive to make. Good luck!

Def shop around on etsy. I remember seeing some from $50 and up.

They’re actually not hard to make—I made my birdcage and my fascinator. The trick is finding the right netting–you won’t find it at a general fabric store (like Jo-Ann Fabric) but you will find it at a millinery store (or maybe even costume shop). It’s about $12/yard. You just cut the length, put a running stitch along the top and pull the netting tight so it has the amount of gather you want, then whip stitch it to a comb.
For the fascinator, I bought a nice silk flower (a peony, I think) at a generic craft store, and ripped it apart. Then I put the bottom 2 or 3 layers back together, glued them, glued some pearls in the center, and glued some feather (also found at the same craft store) to the back of it, and there ya have it. I think if you search here on WB, you’ll find a few fascinator tutorials, too.

Their veils seem to be under $40 for the most part.
