    Hi! Does anyone have a veil they'd like to sell? I refuse to spend $400 on the veil that matches my dress. Just looking for a cathedral length veil in ivory with minimal details. My dress has a lot of lace so I want to keep it simple.

    Thanks!

      If you want min. detail have you thought about making one? I made one for just under $10 I also refused to spend a couple hundred on one that I may not even get to wear if its too windy.

        Target had one on clearance to cheap. It was ivory/champagne/something like that. I'll see if i can find some info on it. It might be sold out.

          I was going to say the same thing as Jen... I was going to make mine, but ran out of time, so my seamstress made it and charged me $25. The material was really inexpensive. Tulle from Joann Fabric and I used a 40% off coupon.

          My veil was 108" long, buy 108" wide at the bottom and taperd to 56" wide at the top where it went into the comb. I wanted it more sheet towards the top, so that it didn't hide my dress. I totally could've made it myself, but just ran out of time...

            Here is a link to what my veil looks like. This was right after we made it so it looks a little messy after we steamed it, it looks much better.

              Thanks girls! I asked the seamtress at the store where I bought my dress how much she would charge to make me one and she said $200! Isn't that crazy...

              I'm not very creative but I will look into buying the tulle and seeing what I can do!

                  Well, I used the seamstress from the bridal salon, but I contacted her privately so I wasn't charged an arm and a leg. She might've also given me a slight discount since my alterations for like $300 and I brought 2 of my BM's there...

                  Here is the website that I had found that gave me the measurements that I found I wanted - Making a Veil

                  Hmm, I can't seem to find the page that showed pictures of the difference in widths at the top (smaller width connected to comb means the veil is more sheer, larger width is fuller and more opaque.)
