I don’t think I’ve seen a tiara worn with a mantilla, although that doesn’t mean you can’t pull it off!

The ways I’ve seen it are:

Drop style a la Grace Kellly

Bordering your your hairline, as pictured by Anne Ruthmann

On the top of your updo a la this gal

Hope that helps!

Hmmm…Well that failed miserably.  Oh well, you should still be able to follow the links.  Good luck!

I too am wondering how to wear the Mantilla veil.  I purchased one from a fellow Bee, and I don’t know how to tack it on to my crown (pins?).  I don’t want to sew in and use a comb.

I tried on a Mantilla Veil with a tiara and it looked pretty well.

I didnt go for that exact veil but I can sord of show you how it 

looks with a tiara.

 

This is the veil i tried on…

This is the pic when i tried it on but i didnt have the tiara on, but you can get an idea of were its placed. Not too far back and not too far in front.

I should have been more specific — I meant crown of my head!  lol.  I don’t want to use a tiara — just on top of my head.  🙂

 

Did that veil have a comb in it?  Or did you pin it on?

Thanks!

A mantilla veil usually has a small comb sewn on the underside of the lace. It can’t be seen at all when wearing.

Yes, that’s how I will wear mine as well.  I think the main idea of this stream of posts was how people wear it (using a comb, hair pins, etc).

Princess Mary wore a tiara and a mantilla.

this is an old thread, but I’m sure people still read it. I’m not professional, but here’s ideas:

For those with a dropped mantilla and curly hair: Curly hair makes things slide off the head; so drape the veil over the face. Then take a victorian hat pin and weave it either into the bun or at the top of the head. Clasp a flower in front of the hat pin.

The rest of my answer is on the thread “Mantilla Veil! what holds it down…” on page 2
