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

smoking fancy expensive is now my new favorite phrase of adjectives. :D

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 :)

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.

From everything I've heard about your wife, she sounds amesome. Why is she not on PM? You should get her to join, too. :)

She finally did after a while of me talking about some threads with her, [url="http://www.phatmass.com/phorum/user/14272-papistwyf/"]http://www.phatmass....4272-papistwyf/[/url]

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

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.
