Why are veils so expensive?!?

Recommended Posts

I went veil shopping yesterday and my was I surprised. The first one I loved was $350 - almost as much as my dress. WTF?!?! I managed to escape with a $150 veil with silver/crystal trim that I love. I'm not sure what material veils are made of but they all look like netting to me, unless it is spun out of silk why do they cost so much? Arrgh . . .

Because they can. LOL I think thats the biggest reason so much wedding stuff is exspensive. They know people will pay the price so they jack it up. You can get cheaper ones (Michael's sells them) but they wont be as nice of quality.

I know what you mean. I was shocked when I found out the prices of veils! I debated not getting one, I didn't even really want one, but eventually found a reasonably priced one on ebay. It's insane!

Ahhh - eBay!! When I'm done with mine, I can turn around and charge an arm and a leg for it?!

I bought mine on ebay too, for I think $25. I actually just bought another one for $20, because I think I want a longer one, so I'll probably end up selling both of them after the wedding.

I was about to start the same thread, but I did a search to see if someone already had.

 

I bought a $10 veil at AC Moore just to take it home & see if I even wanted one. I could tell why it was only $10- there wasn't a big variety in style & it didn't fall right. I don't know how to explain that, but it didn't fall straight down at the ends, it sort of curved up like it was cut funny. Not that you could tell any of this from a distance.

 

So I was wondering how much you have to pay to get a veil that's nice enough. Also, whats the difference was between $25 veils & ones that cost hundreds. I understand if you have crystals & pearls on it, it will cost more. But I just want a plain one. If it is going to be over $25, I think I'd just prefer to wear only a flower in my hair. I'm sort of in between if I want one or not.

I don't know much about the quality difference in pricing. Target sells veils online now along with their wedding dresses...they are like $15. You'd have to order it to see the quality though.

 

I don't recommend paying a lot. I did, I loved my veil, but it was on for like 15 minutes. If you want to skip it just flowers would be beautiful. I had a flower tiara made but it was too much with the veil so I gave it to the flower girl. Alone, it would have rocked.
