    I vote mantilla veil but I’m baised (I wore one as well with a lace dress!). I recieved many compliments. Its not the usual so it stands out.

    I don’t think the mantilla veil is too much and I personally don’t care for the under the hair look.

    I’m not a fan of the under the hair look, but I like the other two options. The first is probably my favorite.

    @emarieBride:  

    I think it that if you feel pretty and comfortable it doesnt matter how much lace you have on :). I didnt wear a bolero because it was a July wedding and very hot but I totally wanted one.

    I wore mine over my hair,  I did it mainly because my grandmother told me along time ago that it would be so pretty and meaningful to wear a veil covering ones head and I remembered that (catholic thing I suppose, lol), she absolutely loved it. Though I also did it because I wanted something not seen as much. If you search Isadora fan page on here, there are pictures posted there, albeit bad ones. lol.

    I’m not a fan of the under veil either. The last veil is my favourite, it’s so elegant. But the first veil is also beautiful and classic. I don’t think it would be too much with the bolero. You should wear whatever makes you happy!

    I love mantilla veils. I’m wearing one too!

    Do you have to wear it at the same time as the bolero? Could you wear the veil for the ceremony and the bolero for the reception?

    Go Mantilla! I absolutely adore them and I think it is a stunning look. I do not think it’s too much lace AT ALL!

    JUST my opinion!  I think that unless the veil has a special meaning to you, it’s too much.  It takes away from that GORGEOUS dress!

    I’m an all lace bride too (Allure 8634) and I am in the process of veil shopping. After looking at your beautiful photos I think I will follow your lead. The mantilla is just stunning. I don’t care for the under the hair look either so over the head for me too.

    Mantilla!  So elegant and classic!  I am not a fan of the low veil look- and feel like that’s what everyone wears.  Go for it…it’s your wedding, no such thing as too much Laughing
