Hello Oh-Brides Readers!

Today we want to share with you a look that has been gaining popularity recently — the Spanish veil or the mantilla veil. The traditional veil has had its ups and downs on the wedding scene, but somehow they always reemerge for a new season or a new trend. With the rise of the Spanish veil, we are certainly in love with this “up” in recent history. Veils are certainly beautiful, but there is something about a striking Spanish veil that embodies beauty and high fashion all at once. The Spanish veil is an amazing choice for brides who are lovers of all thing couture, who want a more formal wedding, and who are looking for an edgy style twist.

The attention to detail, the femininity, and the drama of the Spanish veil has Oh-Brides completely mesmerized. Cut in a circular pattern, and usually adorned with lace or tulle, the Spanish veil can be worn as a blusher (to cover the face), on the crown of the head for a more flowing look or on the back of the head for a more unique look. Simply scroll down to see some of our favorite uses of the Spanish veil.

A Spanish veil worn over the face is the most traditional look, but is used less often. We love this particular look because it is so soft and sweet.
