Veil freakout - what to do?

Recommended Posts

I have put off even looking for a veil, just been too busy/lazy. I had tried one on at the salon where I bought my dress (Belle Vie in Chicago), and there was one that I liked, but it was about $300. I figured after spending more on my dress that I ever thought I would, I didn't need to do the same w/the veil.

 

But since I had been putting it off and hadn't looked around at all, I just decided to go back to Belle Vie and get the veil I know I liked (they said it would take 8-10 weeks to come in, so I started thinking I should get on top of this). Well, after trying it on w/the dress, etc. I was going to get it - and she was ringing me up. I saw $605 - I said "is that the price?" Apparently I remember the price wrong - I have little doubt this this was my mistake. But she did offer me $100 off, and options to make the veil cheaper - like making it shorter.

 

My problem: I can't justify $500 for the veil. I just can't! What are my best options to get a replica made? Or even somewhere to go and look at a large selection of veils? This veil came down past my butt, was 1 layer, plain ivory tulle (or whatever the fabric is), but the edge was trimmed w/sterling silver and had both pearls and crystals in the trim about 1-2 inches apart.

 

Any suggestions?

ann, i could not spend $500 for a veil...that is insane...can you post a pic of what i looks like...there are custom veil makers that i am sure can replicate...veils are soooo easy to make if you have the right equipment and materials.

I think the designer is Toni Federici ... I am on a hunt now!

 

Oh, and if you go here, I think it's the 10th picture to come by - at least the edging looks like it - press

I wonder if you can get them to take more money off. The veil I wanted was also like 600 but they took off $300... I wonder if you can get them to bring down the price even more...

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
