Mantilla Veils are Back for 2013!

Vintage clothing never goes out of fashion! Although it may evolve and change over the years, vintage styles are the base from where all inspiration and fashion come from. In weddings, this is especially true.  One of my favorite vintage styles making a comeback in 2013 is the mantilla.  Take a look at Grace Kelly wearing a mantilla veil on her wedding day in 1956!

Mantillas are Spanish style veils.  What makes these veils stand out is that the are made from one piece of circular cut fabric.  There is no gathering at the top like a traditional veil and are made to lay flat against the top of the head.

Many of these veils are accented with lace around the edges and can be made with or without a blusher over the face.

Mantilla veils can come in a variety of lengths from shoulder to chapel length and are a perfect choice for showing off the back of an intricate wedding dress!

You can even choose to modernize your mantilla by adding gems and crystals. Who needs jewelry with a veil like this? Stunning!

    I live in Dublin and have been looking for a mantilla veil like the ones in your photos, especially in the photos provided by ‘Marry Me Weddings’.

    Do you know where I can get a mantilla veil like that in Ireland?

    Many thanks,
