I remember a bee on here making her own mantilla, or maybe her mom did it?  I would do a search in the blogs.  I remember it was very long (cathedral) and AMAZING!

I also remember seeing a blog on here about making a mantilla veil.  Check the DIY section on this site.

My sister in law made my mantilla veil and she did an amazing job. She also made her own for her wedding. It was beautiful and I got so many compliments on it. If you run into any problems I can ask her since she has experience with them and really knows how to work with the materials.

Mine was medium length down to my upper thigh in the back. I wore my hair all down since I wanted to wear the veil further back to have a flower in my hair. It was all very much spanish inspired. I attached a pic below for the style I went for.

Good luck and I hope you get exactly what you want for your big day!! I love that you are doing a mantilla with your beautiful dress!

They are soooo easy to make. I’m not very crafty and I made mine with a little help from a craftier friend 🙂 You need bridal tulle, a hair comb, lace, and I used clear thread. I then trimmed the tulle to the right shape and length (i rounded my corners and made it a bit narrower towards the top) and gathered the top part together, stitched it, and then sewed the gathered part to the underneath part of the comb, then pinned the lace around the edge, and stitched using the clear thread. The lace I used had pearls and sequins so the clear thread blended in. It took a long time, but worth the money saved!
