Yes! Lace as well as other fabric choices can be hemmed and altered with a few simple alterations to your wedding gown. Almost all lace patterns are attached to some other cloth material such as tulle or net and can be easily detached and altered by a skilled seamstress. Here are four simple ideas for hemming lace wedding dresses:
o As with any classic style, the most classic look is a simple, straightforward wedding dress with a classic bodice. This is the most classic look and is easy to achieve. Simply choose a classic style either in white or cream and the perfect wedding dress lace pattern will be the bodice. A vintage or old-fashioned train will complete the look. Some brides with a more modern gown might opt to use a more modern lace pattern such as an A-line with the skirt.
o The next option to consider is a simple hemline on the top of the gown, whether it is full spaghetti straps, or some other design. The hemline will dictate which sleeve choice is best. For a more classic, elegant style, the hem of the wedding dress should be gathered at the cuff, which is the longer part of the sleeve. Then choose an embellishment, such as ruffles or button Detail, to match the bodice. The sleeves can then be chosen in either a scooped back style (for a more streamlined look), or an elegant spaghetti style with the sleeves rolled down to the wrist.
o Most wedding dresses come in fitted or semi-fitted styles. Fitted dresses come with the bodice lying entirely on the ball of the garment, while semi-fitted dresses have the bodice partially open and hanging just above the crinoline. Both styles can be laced, or they can feature a fitted bottom that has a semi-circular hemline. Some semi-fitted gowns have boning in the waist area, which will allow for the ball to lie properly. This boning can also be used to enhance the waistline of a full-length ball gown.
o Full-length dresses that are sleeveless will feature lace appliques and lace trim along the full length of the bodice. These bridal gowns will have an empire waistline and will feature a full, A-line silhouette. Lace trim will extend from the waistline and around the entire skirt. Some of these dresses feature an A-line silhouette with a V-neckline and a back piece that have a dramatic closure. This type of dress is appropriate for slender brides with minimal bridal jewelry and accents.
As you can see, there are a lot of ways to customize your big day with the perfect gown. If you are the more traditional bride who wants to keep things traditional, you can choose your wedding dress and lingerie from Mary Jane collections or select pieces from the Chantelle collection. On the other hand, if you want to go beyond tradition and try something new, lace-up or off-the-shoulder gowns are a great option. There are so many options available that you are sure to find the perfect combination for your big day. You can have a dream wedding as beautiful as you imagine it on your big day, because with so many options, you are sure to find the wedding gown and lingerie combination that’s just right for you.
