There are three basic styles of lace bridal veils: mantilla style veils[1] edged in lace, gathered veils[2] edged in lace and all-lace veils.[3]

Typical costs:

  • Mantilla veils edged in lace typically range from $65 to $1,150. The price depends on the length of the veil, the type and rarity of lace used for the edging and the time necessary to applique lace onto the veil. Also called a drop veil, a mantilla style veil is a single-tier, non-gathered circle or oval of fabric that drapes over the head, gently framing the face.
  • Gathered veils edged in lace normally range from $50 to $625. Like with mantilla veils, the more intricate the lace embroidery and the longer the veil, the more you will pay. Gathered bridal veils edged in lace create an elegant look sought by many brides, but you'll see more satin edges than lace veils in bridal stores.
  • All-lace veils are harder to come by, and they can range in price from $75 to $4,800. Thrifty shoppers may find all-lace veils in vintage stores or in a grandparent's closet. They may also be purchased by special order from bridal outfitters.
  • The average cost of bridal headpieces and veils is $274, according to the Bridal Association of America.[4] This includes shoes, jewelry and other extras (not counting the dress, veil or headpiece).

What should be included:
  • Veils should include a comb that attaches to the hair to keep it in place. Some mantilla veils will come without a comb and need to be pinned to the hair.
  • Popular materials for lace veils include Chantilly[5] Lace, Alencon[6] Lace, Irish[7] Lace, Belgian[8] Lace or Spanish[9] Lace.
Additional costs:
  • Online retailers charge anywhere from to $7 to $40 to ship a lace veil. Some retailers ship for free with a minimum purchase.
Discounts:
  • Lace veils are available on eBay[10] starting at around $25 shipped.
  • Esty[11] is a site for handmade goods that includes a variety of unique, vintage and trendy lace veils. Etsy veils are typically cheaper than the competition.
  • WeddingVeil.com[12] carries the widest variety of mantilla veils at the cheapest prices, with many veils in the $100 to $200 range.
Shopping for a lace veil:
  • When choosing an antique lace veil, look for a shade close to, or just lighter than, your dress. Pure white vintage lace is very uncommon. Vintage veils are usually a shade of ivory, while tulle veils edged in lace are typically white.
  • The Knot[13] lists helpful tips on choosing a veil that's right for you.
  • Favor Ideas[14] includes a helpful glossary filled with veil terminology.
