Veil


So, because I have no clue what I am doing - I also have no clue how to get a veil. I can order one, from the place I got my dress, but it would be custom made and $400. And, while the saleswoman tried to convince me that this was an 'investment' she also failed to answer my question of how this 'investment' would gain in value - the definition of an investment. I conceded on the dress front, and got a fabulous dress that was more than any single dress should ever cost, but a veil..I will wear this thing for all of 30 minutes and then take it off. Contrary to the saleswoman's belief, this thing will then be tucked neatly away in a box in my parent's basement for all of eternity. Until one of their animals lifts their leg on the box in which it resides, causing the soft ivory to turn to a lovely pee yellow. Okay, so enough of that. I would like a nice simple veil (see model below ...model being Robyn's friend Hollie), but I just don't think I need to make a $400 "Investment". Does anyone know of a great place to get a veil, or someone who makes them for less than $400???? Suggestions!?

Thanks everyone...you're the best! (if anyone is even reading this...comment people!)
