When choosing your wedding dress lace is a classic choice, this beautiful fabric gives a feminine look and can be worn in a variety of different ways.
Lace is thought to have dated back to the sixteenth century and has long been a favourite for those with a high sense of fashion. Princess Kate is one woman of royalty who never steps a fashion foot wrong and her own wedding dress was a laced design. However, Princess Kate doesn’t just limit lace to her wedding day, she is often photographed wearing classic lace pieces to public events with stunning results.
When it comes to wedding dresses, lace especially complements a vintage theme and will fit most styles of dress whether it be long sleeved, slinky, princess or strapless. Lace does not have to be limited to your traditional white dress; any shade can be adorned with this delicate fabric including your coloured bridesmaid’s dresses.
This dress with three quarter sleeves from Circa Vintage has a very classic feel and would work well for an autumn or winter wedding:
The Annette of Melbourne lace wedding dress will emphasize all of your feminine curves in the right way with beautiful detailing which will leave your guests talking:
And this dress from Wendy Makin will make you feel like a real life princess. The straps give it a pretty look and would also be a good alternative for those who are conscious of their shoulders or don’t want to go strapless. The wide skirt will emphasize and slim your waist:
There is something very glamorous about lace which reminds me of Hollywood stars from those black and white movie days. You can imagine the likes of Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn dancing elegantly in these styles of dress.
When thinking about a beautiful vintage theme that would suit your lace wedding dress, consider those classic options. Roses are a much loved and traditionally romantic flower and would look soft and sweet in cream, or bold and dramatic in red.
It really is all about the glamour, and if you are choosing a dress with a large amount of lace detailing, keeping your hair and accessories simple will make sure you get the look just right. Pearl earrings or dainty crystals would complete the outfit with a pair of gorgeous bridal heels.
