Before speaking of the mantilla we see how it defines the Spanish Royal Academy of the Language. The mantilla is: Article of soothes, blonda, wool or another weave, adorned sometimes with tul or fits, that uses the women to cover the head and shoulders in celebrations or solemn acts. Since I have spoken on the mantilla in my articles on the clothes of the Godmother according to the Protocol of Wedding, I will deepen a little in the subject. Generally the mantilla is used at the moment only for the weddings and the bullfighting celebrations. In order to take mantilla in a wedding it will be necessary to consider some advice. If the wedding is during the day, we will shine the mantilla, with short suit. And if the wedding is by the afternoon-night, the same will be only dressed in long suit. It will have to always take with suits of a single piece and long or French sleeve.
The mantilla will have to tell on the suitable length each woman, without exceeding the length the skirt. By the front part, it will have to arrive around the hands, and behind, a little more underneath the one of the hip; although this depends from where they are the tips according to it is placed. A trick to avoid that it flies and to make a good subjection with sufficient comfort, is to tip the alongside left head, and to hold to the mantilla of the right shoulder and the same with the opposite side. In order to shine mantilla, he is indispensable to accompany it by a good peineta; the best ones are generally those of sea turtle. But it is necessary to consider the height of our companion (in case of having it) and our own one. If we are short, we can decide on a high peineta, although they are more difficult to take, and if we are high and of extended face, we can decide on peineta a more loss.
