I didn’t even consider the more expensive ones, the quality of the weave is more delicate and “tighter” than the cheaper ones. I got one from Etsy for less than $40.

You’re paying a markup and for the name. The only time this is somewhat justified is when you have 100% silk tulle. Wholesale the fabric runs around $100/yd and silk tulle is just all-around a pain in the butt to work with, so you’re paying more. Most high-end designers do use silk tulle. If you’re just interested in a no nonsense veil without embellishments, you’re better off just paying the $1/yd for bridal illusion and making it yourself.

I don’t understand why veils in general are so expensive.  I went to a little home town bridal salon and her veils were still $75-100 for a piece of tulle.  Really?  I know you can make your own pretty inexpensively, but I guess you are paying for someone else to do it otherwise.  Sigh.  I opted for no veil because I thought it was a waste of money (no offense to those who chose one).
