Your veil is what really makes you look like a bride, so you don't want to be without one! Made from lace, tulle, chiffon, organza and netting, veils can be very expensive. So, borrowing a veil from a loved one doesn't just provide you with your something borrowed -- it's helpful financially!

A veil isn't normally something that women hold onto as a sentimental wardrobe piece the way we do our wedding dresses or a piece of jewelry, so you probably won't miss keeping the veil after your big day. Most brides don't even wear their veils during their reception, so if you don't have to spend the money on something that you'll only wear for a little while, don't!
