Broke-Ass Bride has done CAI/GOIs for fascinators, flowers, and other hair baubles before. But we haven’t yet vaulted into the vast world of veils. Broke-Ass reader, Sarah, requests:
“I’d love to see a “Can’t Afford It/Get Over It” post on veils. I’m looking for a long (chapel or cathedral) white – not ivory – veil for about $50 or less. Any suggestions?”
Well, Sarah, don’t mind if we do! But we’ll just skip the Can’t Afford It part and get right to the Get Over It part in honor of your No-Nonsense style. I like that about you 🙂
Get Over It:
These first few are from Amazon.com. Sometimes the best/easiest answer is the most obvious!
1 tier white cathedral w/lace scalloped edges = $40.00
2) 2 tier diamond white cut edge = $44.95
Mantilla style w/lace edging = $39.99
1 tier Cathedral length w/Swarovski crystals & satin edging = $24.99
And then there’s etsy.com
1 tier cathedral 120 in veil- $32.00
2 tier cathedral 108 in- $34.99
2 tier pearl accent waltz length -$34.99
Some etsy.com sellers will custom make your veil according to your specifications! Just pick one you like and visit their shop to see if they do custom work, then convo them and request whatever your heart desires! And of course, there’s always ebay.com.
Well Sarah, these are my top 3 “Go To Web Sites” when I’m looking for something of good quality for a rockin’ price! There are so many choices when it comes to veils. I wasn’t sure what you’d like best. So, I threw in a smattering of options from the Spanish mantilla, to the traditional catholic tiered veil, to the beaded and bedazzled! It’s really your prerogative! Do you like raw/cut edge veils? Maybe you prefer a scalloped finished edge? I like finished edges, but that’s just me.
If all else fails, turn to family and friends. I’m sure you know at least one crafty vixen who could whip up the veil that you envision for merely the cost of fabric and the sight of your smiling visage! I hope this gets you on the right track to finding “The Veil” to go with “The Dress”. Let us know how it turns out!
