    I don't know if I'm sold on the idea of a veil for myself yet (or DIYing it) so I bookmarked this Etsy seller who has some reasonably priced veils, thought I'd pass it along incase anyone else was looking for a veil for less than bridal house pricing.

    Mlite83 - did you end up looking more into this seller or finding a veil by chance?

      FireyNurse - do you mind sharing how much your veil ended up costing? Glad to hear you were happy with it. I'm going to check it out for sure!! thanks for posting.

        I still haven't decided yet if I will purchase a veil or not, another bride also recommended Venus Veils on ebay if you are looking for cost-effective options (and who isn't?!)

            I know that a few brides are purchased from Venus Veils - if you search the forum you can probably find reviews and/or pics!

                i got mine from a local seamstress it gave me the ability to make my own choices but saved me the frustration of doing a huge arts and crafts project plus i got to help someone local out for me it was a win/win

                  How much did it cost to have a seamstress make it?

                    Sorry, I totally missed this post!

                     

                    I don't mind sharing at all! My Veil was $52 including shipping which I thought was totally reasonable...I could have probably made it for cheaper technically but all my work and frustration wouldn't have been worth it! lol!
