Paul also bought me a black rectangle lace mantilla a while back. I actually was surprised that I like the look of the rectangle cut better than the triangle. The veils on my dream list are from these three stores:
And here are the veils. I've always wanted a gold or beige veil because both white and black feel like they stand out so much against my hair (although looking at some of the gold ones, I have to admit that they are rather bright). Here they are...
This one is for Sadie so she I can reclaim the one Paul bought me after we got married!
This picture is here because of the peineta (the piece under the mantilla). I'm just crazy about how these look, although I'm not brave enough to wear one (yet)!
I probably wouldn't actually wear something this bright, but I love it! And who knows I've been getting braver lately!
This might be my favorite. I love the color! I just wish it was a rectangle, but I think it's so pretty that it definitely makes the list!
I love the size of this one and the fact that I could wear it like a shawl and then pull it up to cover before going into the church.
This is my second favorite color out of the veils here and it has the larger size, making it my favorite veil. Sadie would have a field day if she got her hands on this one. Oh well, buying a new veil is not on the list of priorities for the near future, so I don't have to worry about her getting her hands on it!
