Hi! I'm wondering whether anyone else has ordered their veil from the internet? When did you order your veil? I'm worried about the colour not matching with my dress. I have found a veil but I don't want to order it too early in case the colour isn't right as the ivory of the veil looks a lot creamier than the ivory of the dress. I have ordered my dress but it won't be ready until January. What have other people done? Thank you for any replies.
I would order samples of the veil material and wait till your dress is in so you can compare.
I took a punt and bought a 99p veil from eBay (china) in ivory about 8 months before the wedding thinking if it was awful I had time to get another but it was perfect!
Unless your veil is really thick you shouldn't actually notice that much of a difference between the dress and the veil. And if you have the time- just wait :)
I ordered mine online and it was perfect it had 50 swarovski crystals on it
I never ordered mine online, I got mine ordered from the bridal shop. My veil was the very last thing I ordered, which I done it 4 weeks before the wedding. My veil was ivory as I had an ivory dress and it looked perfect together x
I got mine from Etsy! £30 rather than £200 that the bridal shop wanted. I figured for £30 I couldn't go wrong so ordered it (it came from Canada) and then took it to a dress fitting (would still have had time to change it if needed) x
I used a lady off Facebook who hand makes them who does whatever length and style you want mine was perfect and customised to my colour scheme reasonably priced and she has loads of photos on. Will post the link on here for you xhttps://www.facebook.com/ElizaclairTiarasVeils/
I was going to choose a style then order from china. But in the shop my mum just said im buying it dont worry this one is perfect we are not risking trying to get one and being disappointed and still buying this in the end. £100 but it is a long one
I ordered one in ivory and when it arrived it was white, I complained and they insisted it was ivory. Had to get another one in the end
I got my veil off eBay for £2.99 and it was lovely x
I ordered 2 from jjshouse.co.uk both were great quality and u can never really tell if they are not exactly the same colour as your dress
I just bought my wedding dress and lady I bought it from threw in a free veil I was so happy with that now just gotta pay a little bit more
I am opening an online wedding accessories site soon and you have made an excellent point. I will now to getting samples for my future clients - I have so far ordered white veils plain and adorned,do people like ivory as well?
I got mine about 8months before the wedding from eBay (by ossa) it was about £24 is a massive 91" 2 teir veil. Took it to my dress fitting an the dress fitter couldn't believe the quality for the price, she said it was as good as veils well over £100 she had seen before. As other people said if you have the correct quality tulle which is light the colour will blend well. Do be careful of thicker tulle.
I ordered mine and had it custom made by a lady on etsy called 'Alisa Brides', she has a fb page too. I absolutely loved it and would definitely recommend. I guess there is always a worry about the quality and colour match but I was really pleased with mine ️
Hey there, does your dress need alterations? If it does, you could see if the seamstress could sew on a little bit of the veil. I have satin edging on the veil a little 'creamier' on the veil but my dress needs altered xx
Amazing I paid around £50 for my veil and I'm seeing people who got theirs for 99p!! Incredible! Definitely goes to show shopping around online pays off! Xx
I ordered mine online and when it came it had two little samples with it of the different colours available lighter or darker than the one I'd ordered in case I found the colour wasn't right. But it was perfect! I would try to get some samples if you're not sure! Xx
