    Hello ladies!!! I am looking for advice on a veil. First, I was totally against having one. I did not want it blowing in my face and I knew I would take it off right after the ceremony and just thought there was no reason to have one. Now my mom is insisting that I have one. THe one I tried on yesterday with my dress was pretty, but I could not see spending $150 on it. Can anyone give me some advice on where to buy a veil that is simple and looks nice but does not cost so much. I really cannot see spending that much money on something that I did not want in the first place! My mom offered to pay for it but I could not see her spending that much either! Any help you guys can give me is greatly appreciated!!!!

      Why don't you check and see the local craigslist.com in your area or your local freecycle chapter. You might be able to find one that way or check ebay. My MIL paid for mine even after I said I loved it and wouldn't pay the price of it.. she went back and got it the next day. But check around I am sure you will be able to find something reasonable!! Good Luck!!

        What type of veil was it? Was it something you could make? I am planning on making my veil and it should only cost me about 30 or 40 dollars.

          I ordered mine online for much cheaper than the bridal store and it looks beautiful. It was $350 in the store and I got it for $80. I think a lot of women on this site have ordered from Occansey Designs.

            I bought a blusher veil from David's for $20. It was simple. There was no trim and it was attatched to a comb. I wore it just over my bun which was in the middle of the back of my head and it fell maybe 4 to 6 inches below my shoulder.

              I made mine for about $15.00 http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t24965 It took a little time, but I love it and if I decide not to wear it it was only $15.00

                I also ordered mine from Occansey. You get to custom make your veil and they have tons of great info on the different styles of veils. It was only $45!

                  Thank you so much ladies for the responses! I am going to check out the websites that you mentioned. I would try to make it myself, but I am not too crafty and tend to mess up the easiest projects!!!
