Delicate and dainty lace dresses for a charming bridal look

By on June 14, 2015

There is an enduring and timeless charm that is unique to lace. Lace in a wedding dress, however small it may be, accentuates femininity and is always elegant.

Today’s wedding dresses bring you countless choices in lace details. With elaborate gowns entirely engulfed in lace, to lace forming few delicate details, or striking motifs encrusted with crystal beading and metallic embroidery in the bodice or skirt alone, there is no limit to what you can do with lace.

Here, let us look at some fabulous lace gowns, to understand how the placement of lace in different locations creates a specific look.

Lace in the neckline and sleeves

A neckline may be created with just lace, or with lace over sheer. The latter acts as an embellished neckline, that renders a modest touch to an otherwise revealing neckline. Scalloped lace edges generate a sophisticated look, and even a simple bateau or scoop neckline can look spectacular with this additional detail. High necklines with lace and encrusted with crystal eliminate the need for a necklace.

Similarly, lace can be used to define the sleeve borders, or even create the sleeves and add a whimsical touch, whether it is cap-sleeves, three-fourth sleeves or even full-sleeves.

In this lovely MoriLee dress, Venice lace appliques border a sheer neckline and form cap sleeves, adding extra charm to the overall look.

Lace either in the bodice or in the skirt

If you do not want lace details to entirely define your wedding gown, you can choose between gowns that employ lace to embellish the bodice, or limit it to the layers of the skirt. Embellished lace is a modern trend, and it adds subtle charm to the dress without overwhelming details. A dress with lace either in the bodice or skirt looks glamorous when paired with satin or silk in the other half, while it is classic and elegant when mixed with tulle or organza.

In this fantastic MoriLee ball gown, lace overlays engulf the bodice, while the skirt is in delicate layers of tulle. The additional embellishments and the basque waist work well with the lace to create an ultra-feminine and royal look.

Lace on the hemline

Pure lace, or lace overlays in the hemline add a feathery touch to any gown. Pretty lace scallops that cascade over a wide hemline look exquisitely ornate. While some gowns may feature lace all over the skirt, there are also others with clusters of floral lace motifs decorating the skirt and train, and spreading out in thicker bunches over the hemline.

All-over lace

For those brides who simply love lace, and can’t get enough of it, you can opt for dresses with all-over lace. With embellishments and bold as well as delicate floral motifs dancing along the entire length of the bodice, skirt, sleeves and train, you will be a mesmerizing sight in lace. With such a spectacular gown, go easy with the accessories and let the dress do the talking.
