When laminating you should ALWAYS make balanced panels.
It is important to have the same treatment on the front face as the back face.

No matter how strong you think your substrate is, an unbalanced panel is doomed to failure.

There are plenty of acceptable backer sheets that can be used instead of expensive veneers in order to balance your panel.
Polybak sheets are super stable and relatively cheap. (About $9 per 4×8 sheet in my area)
