While most veils are simply a fashion statement, mantilla veils are full of rich history and are traditionally rooted in romance-language cultures. Spanish, Latin, and even Italian brides have been wearing this look on their wedding day for hundreds of years. The veil’s elaborate elegance transcends the passing of time and looks as stunning in ceremonies today as it did centuries ago.
What Is a Mantilla Wedding Veil?
A mantilla wedding veil is a timeless, sophisticated finishing touch to a bride’s perfect wedding day look. The Spanish-style circular veil features a thick lace trim along the edge and intricate embellishments cascading down the front, framing the bride’s face.
“Mantilla wedding veils are circular veils with a lace trim around the entire edge, typically with a scalloped lace,” explains event planner Jose Rolón. “They are a popular style for cathedral length veils, but can also be shorter blusher or chapel lengths.”
