What is a Mantilla Lace Veil?

First things first: what is a mantilla lace veil? A mantilla lace veil is a traditional bridal veil that is usually long in length. It is ideal for a formal wedding. It features a decorative and wide lace along its edges (close to your face). A mantilla lace veil can be worn at the top of your head or underneath your hairstyle – whichever you prefer! – similar to other veil styles.
