  Typical costs:
  • At the low end, for between $20 and $50, expect to buy a short, one-layer veil made from tulle or a birdcage veil made from French netting.
  • In the mid-range, for $150 to $250, you can buy a tulle fingertip-length veil with a blusher that covers the bride's face and some detailing, such as ribbon or pearl trim.
  • At the high end, for $300 to $500 or more, expect to get a long veil with several layers and ornate lace or beaded details, possibly in higher-quality silk tulle.
  • The average cost of a bride's veil is $274, according to The Bridal Association of America[1] .

What should be included:
  • Some veils include combs or other fasteners that attach the veil to the hair.
Additional costs:
  • Depending on the type of veil, you might want to purchase a headpiece, to which you can attach the veil. Examples of headpieces include tiaras, headbands, crowns and backpieces, which are barrettes or combs that allow the veil to be attached to the back of the head. Headpieces typically cost $20 to $100.
Discounts:
  • Check bridal boutiques and chain stores for sales. Also, veils are sometimes sold at a discount at sample sales, along with dresses.
Shopping for a bridal veil:
  • Try to match the style of your dress and the formality of your ceremony to the style of veil -- for example, a flyaway veil might work with a simple tea-length dress for a garden wedding, while a cathedral veil might match up with a beaded floor-length gown for a church wedding. If possible, try the veil on with the dress well in advance to make sure they work together. TheKnot.com[2] offers a visual guide.
  • On the high end, local bridal salons usually offer a selection of veils. The Knot.com[3] offers a city-by-city guide to retail shops and vendors.
  • Another, usually less expensive, option is to order via online vendors, such as at MyWeddingVeil.com[4] or VeilShop.com[5] . The disadvantage, of course, that you cannot try the veil on with your dress before you buy, so be sure to check the return policy.
  • Also, used wedding veils can be purchased on eBay[6] .
