I think the trick is going to be getting a veil that has lace edging that does not come up towards your face but is more towards the bottom of it. I tried one on like that and it made it look much more veil-like instead of like a mantilla.

FWIW, I LOVE more plain veils with lace dresses, I think it really lets the dress shine. Cut edge veils are so pretty – and cheaper too, haha.

I’m off to search Etsy for some veils for you!

I agree.  I think you could pull off a cathedral length veil with just lace at the bottom, or just a serged/finished hem and no lace.  Otherwise, You could do a fingertip veil with lace edging.  BTW, beautiful dress!  I love it!

You want to avoid a Spanish look, and you chose a fit-and-flare dress with lots of tiered ruffles? You do realize that’s a very flamenco-influenced style, right?

Still, as PPs have noted, you have lots of options in terms of veil styles, and if you choose one with a raw or ribbon edge or lace just on the bottom, or with some volume on top, it won’t look so much like a mantilla would.
