Polka Dot Veil with Lace Trim

Could there be anything more darling than polka dots? With this dotted trend showing up on wedding runways everywhere, the demand for a polka dot veil is as popular as ever! This real bride opted for the Julieta Mantilla, a polka dot tulle with lace trim.  Style details Most brides who contact me want to wear one of our polka dot mantillas for their vintage inspired wedding.

How this Real Bride found the Perfect Lace Bridal Veil

Many modern brides are choosing not to wear a bridal veil. Opting out can definitely offer a very sleek, chic look but it also means they will miss out on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
