Yes! Lace is always an elegant and timeless choice for wedding dress. When you look at the lace, you will see that it is delicate and beautiful and never goes out of style. A lace wedding dress can be worn for many different types of weddings, whether you are having an elaborate wedding in a cathedral or a simple ceremony in a field. Lace is also very adaptable and will fit with most styles of wedding ceremonies. Here I will give you three lace options for your wedding.
First, let’s look at some of the most classic looks that lace creates. One of the most classic looks is a cathedral-like wedding dress created from a deep red satin fabric with gold details and ribbon laces on the bodice. This look has become very popular for weddings in the autumn and winter months because the warm weather makes the fabric nice and soft. However, this look can also be adapted to a beach wedding in a fabric that is cool and breezy; for example, a silk chiffon skirt with a transparent white and blue satin sash. Yes, lace creates some beautiful effects, but it also creates an illusion of extra depth to a garment, so if you are using lace on your wedding dress you may want to choose lighter fabrics. However, in a cathedral-type dress, the heavy feeling of the lace can create an excellent richness in tone.
Second, we have the geometric sheet lace dress. This design combines a fresh geometric pattern with layers of different colored satin, silk or cotton ribbons. The main focal point of this design is the ruffled edge of the fabric, which is actually a separate layer of tulle attached to a thin geometrical pattern. This type of lace dress can go from formal to casual depending on how it is used.
Third, we have the tea length wedding gown. This style is a favorite among brides because of its unique lines and rich elegant texture. The bodice falls a bit below the waist and flares out to a pleated skirt. The fullness of the skirt is accented by lace details that give it a luxurious look. Tea length dresses are very versatile and can go from a cocktail wedding in the evening to an afternoon wedding during the day.
Fourth, we have the ultra-feminine mermaid wedding dress shopping style. It features elaborate laces from waist to hem. There are pleats on the skirt, dramatic high collars and even ruffles. This style is also available with tulle overlay and with ruffles, but the latter is not as commonly seen as the former. These ultra-feminine dresses are very versatile and make great bridal party attire.
Lastly, we have the traditional A line or sweetheart neckline dresses that are sure to delight any bridesmaids. This type of dress showcases off the grace of the bride while creating a soft feminine silhouette. It features a V shape and is long enough to drape on the hips. Long, flowing trains are frequently used to accentuate this gown type. Its unique necklines include princess, scalloped, and pearl necklines, and these are accentuated with embroidery. These dresses are classic favorites and will surely make a statement for your big day.
