Lace is a timeless wedding fabric that has been popular for centuries. It's no surprise that it's making a comeback in modern wedding trends! Lace can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any wedding, and it can be styled in a variety of ways to suit any bride's personality.
If you're thinking about incorporating lace into your wedding day look, here are a few tips:
Start by choosing the right type of lace
There are many different types of lace available, so take your time to find one that you love. Some popular options include Chantilly lace, French lace, and Italian lace.
Consider the weight of the lace
Lace can range from lightweight and airy to heavy and luxurious. Our best advice is to choose a weight that will work well with your wedding season! Here’s some ideas for each season:
Spring: Delicate and lightweight lace with floral motifs or intricate patterns can be perfect for spring weddings. Consider Chantilly, which is known for its fine, detailed floral patterns, or Alençon lace with its elegant designs featuring 3D textures.
Summer: Light and airy laces are great for summer weddings to keep the bride comfortable. Look for lace made from lighter materials like cotton eyelet lace, Guipure lace (also known as Venetian lace), or soft, sheer laces such as French lace.
Fall: Richer and heavier laces can complement the colors and mood of a fall wedding. Consider using heavier laces like corded lace, which has a thicker texture and more defined patterns, or Venise lace that has intricate and bold designs.
Winter: Luxurious and intricate laces suit the elegance of winter weddings. Consider using re-embroidered lace with metallic threads for a touch of glamour or Duchess lace, which is heavy and often used for creating grand ball gown-style dresses.
Once you've chosen the perfect lace gown, you can start styling it. Here are a few ideas:
Style it with a lace veil
A lace veil is a classic and elegant choice for any bride - plus, lace-adorned veils are having a big moment in bridal fashion right now!
Wear a lace headpiece
A lace headpiece can add a touch of romance and sophistication to your wedding look. This is perfect for brides who don’t want to go for a typical veil, though you can always style them together if you like!
Use lace for your bridesmaids' dresses
Lace is a great way to create a cohesive look for your bridesmaids. Consider a dress that features beautiful accents of lace to incorporate flawlessly with your gown and veil!
No matter how you choose to use it, lace is sure to add a touch of timeless elegance to your wedding. So if you're looking for a way to make your wedding day truly special, consider incorporating lace into your wedding style.
