You can do whatever you like!

Personally, I like lace veils with lace gowns (that’s what I’m doing, and I love it!), but I also think they look beautiful with plain satin or taffeta gowns. 

For a fingertip-length veil, I think a mermaid/trumpet gown is nicest, or at least a dropped waist, In My Humble Opinion. I think a very full skirt going out from the waist might fight. A narrow one would be fine. 

I’ve usually seen mantilla veils with hair up in some kind of bun, so I’m having the opposite dilemma – can i wear my hair down with it?! 

I think this bride looks particularly beautiful with her fingertip mantilla and lace dress 


Some shops will have them, so keep asking – about 1 in 3 shops I went to carried them, and it really makes a difference to see it on.

My veil is from Marisol and I HIGHLY recommend her!  I have a lace gown, but anything without too much beading would work as well (you want the veil to compliment your dress, not compete with it).  You can have your hair either up or down (I’m having it half-up half-down).
