If nothing says bride more than a veil, check out the lace mantilla--the veil thought by some to be the epitome of veils! There are a few ways of wearing a mantilla. Because this veil lacks density, you can fold it over into a layer and tack it to the back of a bun. You can also literally drop it atop your head and wear it over the face or further back with or without a headpiece. Plastic or metal combs sewn to the center can secure the veil in place. How about an alternative to a traditional mantilla? Try a mock mantilla veil, which has low dense gathers and is cut into one or two tiers. Lace is then added to the
 edges. A cascading mantilla is another option and has a top layer worn over the face. For a really extraordinary effect, Alencon, Chantilly or Venise lace can be hand beaded

Hello, Amy_Jo,
The mantilla veil is just so lovely and so traditionally elegant. This veil pairs so beautifully with the gorgeous bare-shouldered gown. Seeing this wonderful veil flowing over the bride’s beautiful bare shoulders, is just so striking. The long opera-length gloves (a favorite of mine) add additional elegance and romance.
Another of your triumphs, Amy-Jo.
Happy the bride who wears, on her wedding day, this romantic ensemble which you have created.
