    Jill - I think I might look into having it made, I just dont' have a great picture! I will probably go to a few stores first, just to see if there's anything I can find. Like I said, I literally haven't looked at all. If I can't find anything, I may go to a craft store and see if I can at least find something for the trim I like. I don't care THAT much about the veil - but I want something I like,and that goes w/the dress. No way am I paying $500 - cna't do it!

    Ann I thought of you at the craft store today when I was there and they actually had some decent ones, but they weren't super long. I think it was Tasha that had hers made, check out Jessalyn's thread on veils I think the link is in there.

        OMG Ann that's insane!

        Other than Ebay here's some places in Chicago:

        House of Brides~ Various locations, but they are often on sale and you can purchase off the rack

        VIP Occasions~ Elmhurst,

        Here Comes the Bride~ Web Page Under Construction designer sample shop

        I do! I Do! 4704 N. Damen, accessories shop but unsure of the pricing and selection

        Urbane Weddings 1920 N Damen, accessories shop but unsure of price and selection

        Good luck!

        By the way before I opted to buy veil online I could only justify spending $150 max and I thought that was a lot.

          I paid around $275 for my veil which I still thought it was a lot but try just going to a cheaper bridal store and Im sure you will find something you love
          I wish you had talked to me before you got your veil. There is a store in Toronto's Sussman's, that sells veils for so cheap. My sisters was beautiful and she paid $50 for it there. They have hundreds. Toronto Brides, its on Queen W, it has tons of beautiful head pieces for cheap as well.

          Ann, that is crazy, never would I spend that much money. Do what Jilly said and check out Ebay, or go to other bridal stores in your neighbourhood. If only you lived closer, I could take you to Sussmans.

            Thanks, Jenetta - I think that will be my mission next weekend. I also know that White Chicago sells veils - so I'll check that out too. Thanks everyone! I know I can find something, it's just a matter of doing it - and I guess I have plenty of time if I don't go the designer route.

              I know I am late on this but that is insane! I don't care if it is a diamond encrusted veil. No way am I paying $600 for a veil. That is crazy. This is an item that I think people should resell so that everyone benefits from it. It is crazy to pay so much!!!!! Def see if you can have it made or try to get it cheaper at another place. Also I know you probably won't want to wait but I know that in Mexico (especially places like PV) they sell veils for much cheaper and they make them beautifully. You should look into that.

                ann, I agree with everyone else on this! There is no way I would pay that much for a veil!! Good luck and I hope you find one!!

                  Ann ~
                  Don't know if this helps, but i did some research on veils. (I'm going to make my own) But, they are usually made out of two types of fabrice either Tulle or Bridal Illusions (if I remember right, one of these fabrics is stiffer than the other). They don't have a ton of different shades of ivory....there is only one ivory. So, which ever veil you get, as long as it is in ivory, it should match just fine.

                  Good luck!
