We love hearing from our readers, especially when we receive your Ask Emmaline questions! Today we’re sharing a new Ask EB question from bride-to-be, Alicia. She asks, “I was getting fitted for my gown and my seamstress suggested I wear a long veil with it. She mentioned something about a mantilla lace veil, but I have never heard of it before. What is a mantilla lace veil?” Great question! In this feature, we’ll tell you what a mantilla lace veil is and inspire you with a stunning example. Plus, one lucky Emmaline Bride reader will win a mantilla lace veil for her wedding by Wedding Bliss by Maija! Let’s get started, shall we?

Hello, loves! Happy weekend! Did you / should you / would you wear a veil or not? Before we get to the answer, we have an exciting announcement: Emmaline Bride is now fresh on the weekend! The way we see it, your wedding planning doesn’t come to a halt because it’s the weekend; and, neither should the inspiration! In today’s post, we hope to spark some (fun!) wedding-related debates to see what you think about wedding ideas, trends, customs, traditions, and more. Today we’re asking the age-old question: should you wear a veil or not? The decision of whether or not to wear a veil is a personal one and should reflect your individual style. Some brides wear a veil because it’s the classic ‘look’, while others wear a veil alternative or nothing at all to reflect their style. I have to admit – I love it both ways! Today we’ve gathered up inspiration to show both sides of the veil debate, and we’ve opened up the floor for you to decide. Read on to find out more…
