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?

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...

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
