Would You Top Off Your Wedding Day Look with a Romantic Mantilla Veil?

These gorgeous photos will make you say YES!

Wondering what makes a mantilla a mantilla? Defined, the mantilla is usually cut on a circle of lace or tulle and bordered with lace trim around the edges. The traditional mantilla, originating as the Spanish mantilla, is oval shaped and worn at the top of the head, secured with pins or attached to a head piece.

Here's a bit of history on the mantilla veil from Bride Chic... The mantilla originated in the warmer climates of Spain circa 1700. Lace versions were chic through the 17th and 18th centuries and you can find them in portraits by Velazquez and Goya. By the 19th nineteenth century, Queen Isabel II encouraged wearing the mantilla. However, after her death the fashion for wearing them died down as well, and by 1900, mantillas were the head chic reserved only for special events like Holy week, weddings and funerals.

So now that you know what it is and where it came from, check out all these beautiful, whispy mantilla veils from Etsy, Pronovias and more!

Aren't they lovely, delicate and dreamy? Would you wear one down your white aisle?
