Hi ladies. My daughter fell in love with a mantilla veil she saw on 4 weddings in the UK. However she is blonde and has found that perhaps it will not work on blonde hair. Darker hair seems to show the lace better. Does anyone have pics of themselves with a mantilla veil and blonde hair?
Here is the only blonde I can find. She does of course look magnificent.
any of you bees help me here?

Why not go with a different coloured lace? Not a massively different colour (unless she wants it of course) but what about like a lovely creamy colour, an ivory or a diamond white. You could get some large lace with crystals/sequins on and that will make it stand out. If you’re DIY-minded you could make one, and then match the lace with her hair so it really pops. The crystal/sequin/bead ones may work better as it will catch the light and show up more. You could just even buy a plain mantilla and sew the crystals on yourself which will save you money but also get somethign she feels really comfortable with. I love my mantilla veil, but I do have dark (very!) hair. I have had trouble choosing a hair style. however, as all the hairstyles I like are on a blonde model all of whom have beautiful high and lowlights whihc I dont have in my hair!
I would buy a cheapie off ebay and see how she feels then either crystalise the cheap one or buy a more expensive one if needs be x

This is nice: if she wants a face covering one, and this shows up beautifully on this ladies hair: and it looks nice in black and white photographs as well.
Depending on how light her hair is, she may be able to get highlights/lowlights to add some definistion to the veil as well as maybe havign a curled style on the hair too?
