I purchased this mantilla in black as I had been wanting a black veil to replace the black eyelash infinity veil I had, which seemed to long for me and I rarely wore it. This veil was a perfect solution for me. I love that it is very soft- the material does not stick to itself but is very silly. The pattern is somewhat sheer but elegant and the long sides are just right for me. The back is shorter but is still long enough to cover my shoulder length hair. I am very happy with this mantilla!
This veil is light and perfect for Lent. Matches the altar colors. Thank you Veils By Lily for creating this for me.
I specifically wanted a silver veil and the photo showed this as very silver. When the veil arrived I would describe it as definitely more gray than silver. Other than the color it is exactly what I wanted. It has silver lights to it but it is gray.
Really love this veil! Lightweight and a very pretty fabric of lace. Just love it! I always get the plastic comb sewn in --- gives me the comfort knowing it is not going to fall off my head.
Lovely. Perfect. Exactly what I wanted.
I just ordered a white and black floral lace manilla and I love them! They are so elegant. I order all my manilla from Veils By Lilly and I will continue to. Great quality and I always get what I ordered. Thanks Veils By Lilly for being a dependable source for veils. God Bless!
I was overjoyed to have received my order in time for Easter. The lace was soft and beautiful and the longer sides did help keep it in place. I am a sacristan at church and I worked for three Masses on Easter, and at no time did this feel like this was going to fly off my head as I quickly walked to get set up for the next Mass.
I couldn't be happier.
And I want to buy more! These are just so beautiful!
This veil is a 2 star because I take partial blame for ordering in the first place. Veil is rather STIFF to the feel and appears as though it was manually cut with scissors (AND IT LOOKS LIKE IT AS WELL. I would have preferred to have paid more money for a higher end QUALITY VEIL (which this is not!). This was ordered November 20th and I received December 23rd. I DID pay an extra $4 to speed shipping. It could possibly be the veil business is quite busy during mid November to December. I get that.... WHAT I DO NOT GET IS THE QUALITY OF THE MATERIAL USED. C-H-E-A-P.
REPLY: Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, what may be one person's cheap material is another's soft, beautiful, and affordable lace. So while we do not consider this veil "stiff," there is no comparison to our French and Spanish Cotton veils. Please consider ordering one of those which, while significantly more expensive, may better fit your expectations. We do carefully cut around the edges with carefully selected tools to accentuate the details - not with scissors. We are sorry you thought our meticulous work was cheap. In the future, you might consider the veils mentioned above or any of our other veils with trim. Finally, please be aware that, as one of our "Handmade to Order" veils, this veil does take up to 5 weeks to complete. Choosing Priority Mail (+$4.00) as opposed to First Class Mail will only speed shipping by a couple of days.
