Thank you so much for this thread. I am amayzed at these beautiful Spanish Mantillas. My very American mother wore one for her wedding, and I have always been partial to them. It is wonderful to see the roayls wearing some of the most beautiful matillas in world, I think.

Beautiful and elegant as they are why are they always in black (except when attending an audience with the Pope)?

The colour of the Mantilla demonstrates the marital status of a woman. Black stands for married, white for virgin.

In one of these threads (sorry I could not find it), I saw a very beautiful Spanish Lady attending a Royal wedding in a PurpleMantilla and Purple lace gown. What would that signify? (for the record, my mother wore white to her wedding! :)
