Where to find veils?!

I ordered my wedding dress but couldn't find any veils at the bridal salon that I liked.  I'm based out of Santa Monica.  Anyone know any salons or stores with good veil selections in the L.A. area?

    I bought my veil online from a custom shop called glamgal.com. My veil was a splurge,because it had embriodery with very specific colors and it was very long.  If you go with them, make sure you order your veil early(I ordered mine in early July and it came in September).   Another way to go is etsy.  If you have a vision for what kind of veil  you want or a couple of pictures that inspired you, custom is the way to go.

    There are shops downtown that the girls on this board will fill you in on also, along with other places that they went to.

    I used Candi Merle from My Crowning Glory- she does custom veils but they are very cheap. She can do anything, and for a fraction of the cost of a bridal salon. You should check her out!

    I got my double tiered veil from Royal Accessories located in Downtown LA. It was double tiered w/ beaded edges and got it for only $35. I should have the contact info on my wedding bio under Vendor Reviews. GL

    I found my veil at the Erica Koesler warehouse in North Hollywood. They have some amazing deals there and they were so helpful.

    Thanks ladies!  I am the first of my friends and siblings to get married so I am lost on most of this stuff.  I really appreciate the responses!

    Another Candi Merle (Crowning Glory) bride here! We did everything via email and she custom made exactly what I wanted for $19 (plus $10 shipping)! Can't really beat her prices or talent.

    Winnie Couture in beverly hills had the most beautiful veil ever! It was a wrist length two layered curled veil with beautiful beading around the edge i think it was like $250. I keep looking for a curled veil but no one ever knows what that is at other bridal shops. It must be custom from the shop.
