Veil and accessories shopping

I'm hoping to get a reasonably priced veil and other accessories online, but I'm not sure what I'm looking for.  Where did you all go to shop for veil, flowerpin, etc?  I'd love to go and try things on.  I'd be happy to purchase at a store if I felt the price was right.  Thanks!

    I found things I liked that were way way way over my budget, found a picture of them, and then posted that picture on etsy.com as a request. I then had people from there make it for me at a fraction of the cost.

    I haven't shopped for a veil and I don't know if it would be an issue for you, but there is a second-hand store in DE called the Resale Boutique on Philadelphia Pike (Claymont).  They have a whole bridal shop downstairs.  I'm sure they have plenty of veils you can look at and try on.  And, they should be much cheaper than a new one.

    Oh, and I ordered my hair fascinator off of etsy after months and months of looking at pics on there.  If you order online, just make sure to check or ask for the measurements.  You dont want something huge, or smaller than you expected.

    Thanks ladies!!  This is next on my list...  I have a swatch of my dress fabric, so I'm hoping that helps, but I don't know how you shop for veil colors, etc.  It seems like they come in white or ivory...

    I just got mine made in ivory and crossed my fingers. The ivory was slightly darker on my veil then on my dress, but you couldn't tell at all, and you can't in pictures either.

    Thanks BP, I'm not sure how much you can really tell in pictures...

    Yeah that's what I mean, you don't notice a difference if the color is slightly off, so don't worry TOO much about the colors matching perfectly.
