From the gown to the mantilla, Spanish brides shine in traditional wedding pieces.
The Royal wedding photos above capture traditional Roman-Catholic weddings in all their glory. A traditional Spanish Bride look is glamorous and not too hard to put together. Here are the basics:
Traditionally, the mantilla, (or veil) was made of only lace. Today, you can find both lace veils, and sheer veils with lace trim.
The veil is placed over a fan-shaped peineta. This will make any bride look like a queen.
The peineta comes in different sizes and shapes, so you can choose how high you want it.
Spanish style wedding dresses are elegant and form fitting. There are a variety of Flamenco style wedding dresses available online.
Traditionally, brides carried fans down the aisle but, today many brides carry a bouquet of red flowers.
Did you know that traditionally, Spanish brides wore black dresses? The black dress signified that the bride would remain faithful until death.
