Veil For Sale!

Recommended Posts

I really need to get rid of some of my miscellaneous wedding stuff! I'll probably post more later, but this is a start...I wasn't planning to sell this, but I figured I might as well have someone else wear it rather than let it get yellow in my closet!

 

I purchased my gorgeous cathedral length veil at Bridal Gallery in Grand Rapids, custom ordered to go with my gown. The actual veil is cathedral length, and has a fingertip blusher. I had the cathedral part made detachable by velcro- very easy to handle. You can see the veil below in my sig, and here are a few pictures. The veil has a beautiful scalloped beaded edge through the whole thing.

 

It is in excellent condition...the veil was worn for my ceremony and pictures, then the cathedral part was detached for our first dance. I then removed the veil and wore a hair flower for the rest of the reception, so I had it on for about 5 hours total.

 

I paid $290 for this veil, I am asking $175 OBO, plus actual shipping costs.

It's kinda hard to see in this pictures, but if you look, you can see the scalloped beaded edge extending past the train of my dress.

If you have any questions, or if there is a specific picture you'd like to see of the veil (like not on me!) let me know and I'll try to get it for you.

I really didn't spend much on my dress, so I'm just going to keep it. I'd sell my TTD dress, except that it's hemmed to me barefoot- 5'1" and there's not too many people that are short & stubby like me! haha

Hey Sarah! I love this veil!! Too bad I already bought mine!!! By the way, what color is it? Is it a bright white, off white, or what? I bought mine when I purchased my dress because I knew I would have a hard time finding one that matched my dress as well as this one did. My dress is a very light cream color.

It's white. My dress is off-white, with champage on the top, but I liked the look of the white better than the ivory.

Yes, what color? My dress is ivory with champagne trim, so I think it might be hard to purcahse sight unseen to see how it matches. But I LOVE it. The one I found at David's was $179 ... I still hate to spend that much but it did match perfect with my dress.

Well, let's see...I bought it as a sample size 12. I had 2 rounds of alterations done to it to take it down to approx. a 6-8 (although with the way it laces up I think it would probably fit anwhere from 4-10 now, might be a touch loose as a 4). I was a street size 2-4 dress, 6-8 pants when I wore that dress. Confusing, I know.

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
