    so i'm having a mantilla made and they sent me a 5 lace options. i've narrowed it down to 2, but i really can't decide any further. what do you ladies think?
    my dress is incredibly simple ivory silk so either would go with it.. any thoughts? it's amazing how the closer it gets to the wedding, the less i am just able to make decisions about trivial things...!

      i say lace#1 b/c from a distance (which is how eveyone looks at it) it will have more definition and contrast :)
      very pretty - where are you having it made?

        Lace 1 is my favorite. I like the big loops, more dramatic!

          They're both so pretty but I like lace #1. It'll be more noticable

            I like #1. I had the same on my wedding dress! Very pretty!

              I agree, lace #1. So funny that your inspiration pic was the one I used for so long until I found a dress that wouldn't look good with a mantilla :-( Great choice, I love it!

                  I like #2. I think it looks more authentic :)

                    I love the mantilla lace! That picture of the veil looks awesome! Is there a certain place you are buying yours from? What is the correct LINGO for the one you want?? I am so dial up on this stuff!
