Mantilla Wedding Veils
The Mantilla wedding veil is an oval veil shape, which is designed to be worn flat on the head. There is no gathering in the width of the fabric.
The traditional mantilla, also known as the Spanish mantilla worn at the top of the head, secured with a comb sewn flat to the fabric, troupe clips, or a hairpins. A Mantilla is one layer, this veil style cannot be worn over the face.
Design features– The mantilla veil has an edging that will draw up the side of the veil. Some times clients can find this look a little over powering near their face and decide to have a mantilla effect veil.
The Mantilla veil can also be worn further back on the head over a bun or chignon. This is the perfect option for a client who would like to wear a wedding veil but does not want to have ay volume in the veil or for a client who does not want to obscure the detail on the back of her wedding gown.
The Mantilla Effect
We create the veil shape as a centre gathered veil. The fabric is a gathered across the width of the fabric. It is then sewn onto the comb. The edging is sewn up the side of the veil and over the top of the comb creating a mantilla effect veil as shown below.
