Delicate, lace veils are the ultimate in femininity and range from all-over to edge-only designs. Blonda, Chantilly, and lace-embroidered tulle are three lace options for veils. The first two are found primarily on vintage or extremely high-quality veils. The last, because of versatility and cost, is most commonly worn by today’s bride:
* Handmade Blonda lace has designs crafted from two types of silk: A thin thread for detailing and a thicker one to add depth, more details or color. See an example of blonda lace here, at the Mares Lace Museum.
* Chantilly lace is intricately embroidered with vegetable, fruit, or floral designs and is named for the town in France where the lace originated. According to Wikipedia, while most Chantilly lace is black, some white veils bear Chantilly designs.
* Lace-embroidered tulle can be sewn to mimic traditional Chantilly or Blonda lace or reflect other designs.
When many women think of a lace veil, they envision a mantilla veil, single-tier with a scalloped edge. Visit MyOnlineWeddingHelp.com’s mantilla veil page to see examples or to shop: https://www.myonlineweddinghelp.com/bride/accessories/veils_tiaras_headpieces/mantilla_veil.htm
