    I wore a mantilla veil but I wore it farther back than it is traditionally worn.  I was not going to wear a veil at all only a hair flower but I saw this on the clearance rack when my dress finally came in and it seemed like fate to me.  After seeing my pics I was so happy I wore it. (some of these are pro and some guest pics. )

    I suggest trying some on once you dress comes in.  I totally didn’t think I was a veil girl and then I came to love it.

    I love mantilla veils. I am going to wear one!

    I think I will go with a lace a little thicker than this one shown

    I wore a Mantilla veil. I don’t have any good pictures of it, but if you want to see a couple of teaser pictures here, you can see how I wore it.

    @Miss Sardine: wear the veil you want. no one is going to judge you if your veil isn’t matchy match. You get married once, do it the way you want to.

    I wanted mantilla but it was too much with my dress, so I opted for this veil – ignore the scary model

    I vote Mantilla but I may be partial because I wore one.

    The second pic is my actual dress and veil. I love the mantilla viel. It adds so much drama to the dress.

    @Miss Sardine: Here is is: Bel Aire Alencon lace bridal veil – V7034

    I found it online for $120 – I paid over $200 at the bridal salon…..but it’s just gorgeous!!!!
