How exciting! You look amazing, and I LOVE that hair flower. (if it comes up missing, I have no idea where it went.)

A mantilla can be worn in several ways. Traditionally its up framing the face. But when I tried mine on like that it was looking like a I was a jumbo jet with wings about to take off. It also depends how you wear your hair if you had it up or down would be a consideration.

Miss.skinner you could wear it like ?

love the veil.  love the flower….just not together!  i personally think part of the beauty of the mantilla veil is that it frames the face and having it hang so far in the back seems a little off. i think it would look best closer to the hairline…jmo.  good luck!

Does the lace on the veil match the lace on the dress? If not,I’d get something a little more simple and sheer. I don’t think mantilla veils are right for every dress,but I actually like it better positioned where you have it.

Your seamstress did a great job on the bustle! Looks like you’ll be comfy all night (but make sure you have people who know exactly how to do it for you too!)
