I made my own mantilla veil, wanna know how? (w/pics)

Recommended Posts

So for those brides who can't stomach spending $150 plus, on a veil that you will wear for 15 minutes...I feel you!

 

I looked at manitilla veils in store, I looked at them on-line and I just couldn't imagine spending the cash and/or not seeing it in person before deciding it was for me....which brings me to deciding to make it for myself.

 

Step by step guide:

1) Find a fabric store that offers a variety of lace

2) Purchase tulle in the length of your choice and buy enough lace to surround the paremeter. For me the tulle = $4 (for waist-length) and the lace had beading and cost $50 for 2 meters.

3) Cut the tulle into an oval

4) Hand sew the lace around the edge of the tulle - if you don't know how to sew, ask your mom or your aunt...

5) Sew a comb (purchased at Micheals) at one end of the oval, or use bobby pins to affix it to your hair the day off

6) DONE

 

Here are some pics of mine:

that looks great, thanks for posting the directions, I have to admit when I saw your pics earlier I fell in love your veil. I was going to make a plain one, but now I am going to go get some lace and try to do a mantilla.

I just looked at your pics earlier and was thinking how much I liked your veil -- I can't believe you made it! Thanks for the instructions!

I'm glad I could help inspire - really the finished product came out better than I ever imagined! For those of you making it yourself, you won't be disappointed.

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
