While planning her wedding, Gloria Franklin hoped to wear an authentic, Spanish-made mantilla to incorporate her heritage and faith into her bridal look. Her local search for the right veil ended in frustration: the selection was small, the cost was steep, and the mantillas did not have a traditional Spanish look.

Thanks to her family in Spain, Gloria found the perfect handmade, heirloom-quality mantilla at a quarter of the cost of a similar veil in the US. The experience left her inspired to help other brides find the mantilla-style veil of their dreams without breaking the bank, and The Mantilla Company was born.

Gloria hand-selects each veil she sells, working with trusted Spanish vendors. To assist with styling, she has her brides send photos of their wedding gowns as she suggests a veil to perfectly complement it.

From Gloria:  

I truly feel blessed, honored and flattered to be able to do this work. It is so important to me to express my gratitude to my customers, and I try to do that by putting a lot of thought into my selections for each bride. I love receiving emails (and photos!) from satisfied brides, whether it’s after trying on their mantilla on for the first time or after their wedding.
