    I went for my first viewing/try on of my dress today and I also bought a veil.
    I think I got totally ripped off on the veil...I paid $265!!! I really didn't do much research on veils before today and now I'm realizing I think I could have gotten it for a lot less!!! Plus, the veil is nice and looks good with my dress, but, it's nothing special at all. I can't believe I fell into the bridal salon trap.
    I was thinking of calling them tomorrow to cancel my order.
    Any thoughts?

      Without seeing a picture or knowing anything else about it, the price sounds way too high for me! My veil was only $50! It was really simple but it did the job, KWIM?

      There are lots of sites recommended by brides on the forum that do custom veils for very reasonable prices. I think Ann and Maura the mods used the same vendor. I'll try and find the link for you.

      The bridal salon trap is SO easy to fall into! Don't feel bad!

            Wow thats pretty expensive. The bridal shop I went to had a veil that cost more than my dress and it was UGLY!! I got a mantilla for about $145 or so and its beautiful. Post a pic :)

              It depends on the veil. My veil was $450 (eek!) but it was all hand stitched details and I am in love with it. If you see it as "nothing special" I would say you spent too much.

                Thanks for your help!
                I called the bridal salon first thing Sunday morning and told them I wanted to cancel my veil order....she told me she would call me back in 15 minutes and then never did until yesterday! Anyway, they agreed to cancel my order, but, would not refund my money whatsoever! They gave me a credit to use towards something else in the boutique instead... I decided to get the pair of shoes that I loved but didn't get because they were too expensive. Even though I love the shoes, I'm just pissed that they would not refund my money....what about buyer's remorse?
                Lesson learned: DON'T BUY ANYTHING FROM A BRIDAL SALON UNLESS YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN YOU WANT IT!

                    Yeah a lot of bridal salons do that. No refunds, just store credit. At least you had an excuse to get the shoes you loved! Think of it as a blessing in disguise

                      It's such a scam!
                      Anyway, you're right...at least I got a pair of shoes that I love (and will actually wear again) instead of paying a fortune for one piece of fabric that I'll wear for only one hour of my life!
