    So beautiful!

    Posted by Sipkje on 6th Apr 2018

    Ever since they came out with the Stella Maris mantillas I knew at some point I would purchase one. I came into the church while helping with the music for the Latin Mass at St. Mary Star of the Sea, so having a Stella Maris mantilla means a lot to me. Not to mention how beautiful this veil is, even more so in person!

    Longer and heavier weight

    Posted by Mary on 25th Mar 2018

    This is my second Stella Maris veil. This one is black and my previous one was the blue on black mesh. This veil comes down very long in the front and goes past my shoulders in the back. It has a lot of detailing which makes it heavier than some of the other French lace veils. The black one seems to grip the hair well. (My blue one slides all over the place.) I do have to be more careful because I tend to accidentally tug the veil as the sides are long. It’s very pretty though.

    Stunning French Mantilla

    Posted by Dannica on 26th Feb 2018

    I have always admired women who wear mantillas to Mass, as it is such a beautiful form of reverence for our Lord, the living Jesus Christ. Nonetheless, I hesitated to purchase my own, mostly out of irrational fear and anxiety of what others would think. Finally though, I broke through my fear and wore my mantilla to Adoration and Mass this past week. Besides being a way to honor Jesus, the mantilla also serves as a reminder to me, that YES, I am in the presence of the Living Christ. I know that this will only serve to strengthen my faith and I am so happy I overcame my ridiculous fears. I digress though; the mantilla is so lovely. The lace is soft and does cling to my hair, so I don't need a comb or bobby pins. I cannot say enough good things about the mantilla and Veils By Lily. The mantilla shipped almost immediately after I placed my order and I will be using Veils By Lily again, both for myself and other women in my life.

    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

    Posted by Linda on 10th Oct 2017

    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.
