    Very fancy

    Posted by The blue is beautiful on 7th Feb 2018

    I purchased the navy on black mesh. It is very rich looking. I prefer dark veils but have dark hair. The black mesh disappears on my hair and all that shows is the navy color. This is my fourth of the French veils and is by far the heaviest. It’s still lightweight, but just heavier than the French Bouquet and the French garden. This one is a bit more slippery. I still wear it without a comb or clip, but it is just a bit more slick. The sides come down very low and the back is lower too. I really like that. It feels more formal. I do have to be careful not to accidentally pull the longer sides though. In all, a very nice alternative to black while still being dark. Just lovely.

    Well-made and comfortable; very cute and perfect for Worship.

    I love it! It's not itchy and it doesn't slip off easily; it stays in my hair but doesn't pull on it (which is a miracle when you're a curly haired gal!). 10/10; I love to go to Mass with this!

    My Favourite Veil

    Posted by Marci on 16th Nov 2017

    I have ordered many Veils from Veils By Lily, but this one is beyond them all in beauty. I got teary when I lifted the veil out of it's wrapping - so lovely. My absolutely favorite veil, and named for our Blessed Mother too. The pictures don't do this veil justice - it drapes far more nicely than is captured in the picture and it is far softer than I'd imagined it could be. I worried initially that maybe the longer length would be too much as I'm a short woman - only 5'3. But I needn't have worried - the moment I tried this veil on I knew it was perfect. My husband agrees :).

    This really is a blessing to have - I really feel like the bride of Christ in a very special way when I wear this veil.

    French Stella Maris Mantilla

    Beautiful coverage--the lace is very, very beautiful and the detail is thick enough so that hair doesn't really show through at the top. It is just the right size........I ordered this one for a gift and will order another for myself.

    When I was growing up as a Protestant in the Deep South during the 50s and 60s, we always wore what we called our "Sunday best" clothes to church. Now, as a Catholic, this wonderful mantilla helps me bring my "best" in body, heart, mind, and soul when I worship before the Real Presence of my Lord.

    It is delicate, yet not fragile; and the drape is quite soft, I believe even softer than than the website pictures convey. And I do LOVE the longer length. It has become my "Sunday Mass best"!
