    Hello,

    I have been searching long and hard for a veil, it is such a tiny element but it really has me stumped!

    My dress is backless and has nice lace detailing on the opening so I don't want anything too heavy or fussy that will distract from the back of the dress.

    I only plan to wear the veil for about an hour however the going rate seems to be £80+!

    I'm not looking for anything super flashy just something basic but not cheap looking! I ordered one off ebay for £7.99 however the fabric wasn't that nice and it looked a bit cheapo.

    Perhaps I'm asking for best of both worlds, but for a simple veil (elbow length, one tier and with only a small amount of lace on the edges) I just can't justify spending £80+!

    Has anyone had any online veil ordering success? (The bridal shops are all overpriced so I'm not going to even go there)

    Thanks!
    :)

    Have you thought about the bay? Sounds like you need a very short one, or just go without.

    Do you mean bay of e?

    Already tried there but the one I ordered was quite basic and cheap looking so I'm not sure if that's the right place to look. Also, I can't find anything on there at the moment that's quite right.

    I want an elbow length one but that's one tier so quite see through. At first I didn't think I wanted a veil but when I tried on my dress the veil made all the difference so I think I will feel a bit bare without one now!

    Could this be your something borrowed?
    Do you have any friends or family who have something that might fit the bill?

    Just a long shot but have you done a search for anywhere that might hire veils - not even sure such a place exists

    Looking forward to becoming the 3rd and last Mrs McLauchlan
