The Mantilla

What's more romantic than a mantilla veil? Hmmmmm.... I can't think of anything. The mantilla veil originated in Spain. It features intricate lace detailing and has a very specific placement on the head. The veil is draped over the crown which allows it to fall over the shoulders and down the back. I went with something really simple for my wedding veil because my dress had a lot of detailing, but I've always been envious of the bride who could pull one off. Here's a sampling of some favorites.

First up: Lynn Kiracofe (possibly "the master" of this style veil ... and she also makes tiaras)
