One of the bees – Gionetto – has gotten me all excited about bubble veils. Any suggestions of a good place to get one for under $100 – the cheaper the better of course – why are veils so pricey anyway?
I researched it a bit last night and it looks like I will want between 25 and 28 inches.
Yes I know etsy has them – anyplace else? Or is there a good etsy seller you can recommend? Thank you?

I think they’re also called Fountain Veils, which may help you in your search. I found one two years ago and it was $550 (before they became fashionable and more available I guess?) and couldn’t find one ANYWHERE–Ebay, Etsy, etc, for the LIFE of me.
Here’s one on Ebay…it’s 30″ though = http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-30-ELBOW-LENGTH-WEDDING-BRIDAL-BUBBLE-VEIL_W0QQitemZ390041203753QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUS_Veils?hash=item5ad0447429

I believe that bubble veils and fountain veils are two different, albeit similar, shapes of veil.
In bubble veils the tulle is folded in half so both edges gather at the top and the fold is at the bottom of the veil. It can only be made with bridal illusion.
Fountain veils, on the other hand, can be made of either bridal illusion or English netting or both, they are NOT folded, but can have multiple layers. Also, they usually are longer than bubble veils.
I agree that the effect can be similar at times, however fountain veils have more of a slender look and buble veils have more of a , well, bubble look 🙂
Glad that my suggestions help here and there!
EDITED: bubble veils are usually cheaper.
