Affordable veils?

Jenn, on 21/November/2018 at 22:14 Posted in Wedding fashion

Every veil I've liked so far is wayyyy too expensive in most bridal stores....$900 plus.

Any suggestions on where to find an affordable cathedral length veil with a little beaded lace embellishment?

How can tulle be soooooo expensive? :'(

    I bought a birdcage veil off amazon for $20 - totally gorgeous and looks nicer than the $150 ones at david’s Bridal

    RIGHT?! You’re just paying for the name. I thought that the lace of the dress I loved would be hard to match but even the most expensive veil on jjhouse is worth it because it matches to a T and it’s 1/3rd of the price of the actual matching veil.

    OMG where are you guys finding these veils?! Haha. Granted mine's a raw edge cathedral length tulle veil, but it was $249, and I got 10% off because I'd purchased my dress at the salon... It's huge, and stunning, and has a big, sturdy metal comb.

    As a side tidbit my girlfriend went to a sample sale to buy hers for over half off. Sample sales, trunk shows etc. are usually thought of as just for dresses but there’s a ton of veils and accessories that are marked down too. JJhouse looks like the least expensive option though; they look similar to the ones from AliExpress and wish but they’re all priced well and I mean... it’s literally just a freaking veil it does NOT need to be over 100 dollars.

    Ladies, thank you so much for the recommendation for jj’s house! Never ever heard of it before now. Such good prices. Ordering my veil this weekend!

    It was because of one of your comments awhile ago that I even thought to try jjhouse! So thank you! I couldn’t justify $300 on something I’ll wear for 2 hours lol. It would be easy enough to re-sell them unused too!

    I agree!! I was looking at David's Bridal and the fingertip veils were $300 like.. nope!! So I thought for $50 (and that's biting 3 of them) it was worth a shot?? And in soooo happy I did!! I absolutely love mine too I cannot get over how nice it is for the price!

    I got mine from JJ house as well. It was under $30, it’s a very simple cathedral length and it’s beautiful! I was floored with how soft it was and how well made! The prices do seem unreal, but the plain one I picked from the bridal store was $300! So I figured it wasn’t a huge loss to try jjhouse and it worked out in my favour

    ALRIGHT! Check out JJs House online! I bought 3 different fingertip length veils from there (couldnt decide on the style I wanted) all for under $20 each!! I ended up picking 1 of the 3 and am selling the other 2! AND THEY ARE SUPER NICE!!!! More than worth the tiny price tag on them I'm so sooo happy with mine!!! Its hanging in my closet (theres a crease from shipping) but hanging and a little steam and itll be perfect! Photo is the one I decided to keep!! They do carry Cathedral length as well!!
