I am hoping to get a mantilla before I go overseas this summer, just in case I end up going to a church where I need one. Where do you all suggest I find one?

You can do a search on etsy.com. Plain and dirt cheap to smoking fancy expensive.

If you want a basic one I make them. Any size/shape and most common colors. PM me if you are interested.

You don't need to go overseas to wear a mantilla. Wear one every time you go to church. :)

A friend has a veil business, www.veilsandmantillas.com - I just ordered one from her, in fact. :) Her prices are the best I have found for the quality of the veil.

Also www.garlandsofgrace.com has some unique head coverings too.

One time my Lutheran grandparents were on a tour of Europe to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary, and they stopped at some gorgeous church. My grandmother was one of the few ladies that brought a headscarf with her, and thus could go in the church, because the tour guide forgot to inform them that they might need a mantilla-like garment. The funny part was that most of the ladies that didn't bring one were Catholic.

<-- continues to have nothing substantial to add to help out the OP, but likes following links to pretty mantillas.

I'm *hoping* to make my own mantilla :) Etsy, veilsbylily and RosaMystica Mantillas all have pretty, relatively affordable things.

By all means, check out Garlands of Grace, but just as a note of intormation: in the past they've publicly professed anti-Catholicism. I was considering them myself, but was turned away when I discovered what they had said about Catholics. Quite unfortunate, really, as a lot of their stuff is lovely. Just be discerning :) Edited by Spem in alium

My wife went to [url="http://www.veilsbylily.com/"]http://www.veilsbylily.com/[/url]

Her first order was one from aquinas and more.com which resells St. Francis veils (or something close to that). They did not sent what she ordered and it was not as soft as the Veils by Lily. She does not recommend that brand.

I know she'd love and would be a good addition to the raising small humans phorum. Edited by Papist

I love [url="http://www.headcoverings-by-devorah.com/home.html"]http://www.headcoverings-by-devorah.com/home.html[/url] She does some mantillas but I love her little head scarves as they're very discreet. I've had my black one for nearly a year now.

New question: what length is the best? I'm so new to mantillas I have NO idea what type to get and which are the best.
