Seven Types Of Lace Wedding Dresses To Captivate Your Guests
You’ve heard it plenty of times in plenty of places: there’s a type of lace for every bride. Some like it chic and comfortable—others prefer striking and sophisticated. Whatever your mood for this ultra-romantic fabrication, here’s seven types of lace wedding dresses to know while shopping for a wedding gown. Before you find a local wedding dress boutique, take a moment to study the different lace wedding dress varieties we use to construct our exquisite gowns. From the fit and flexibility of knit lace to the vintage romance of ribbon lace, this gorgeous fabric has something for every bride!
A softer lace, this lace lacks a tulle back, making it more flexible, and contours around the body with more ease. Our Megan gown is constructed of gorgeous allover knit lace with an embossed floral detail.
Also called Venetian lace, Guipure is a firm, stiff lace without a net background. Patterns are created by a series of close, embroidered stitches onto a fine fabric that seems to disappear in the finished piece. Take a look at the allover Guipure floral lace on Bexley.
Delicate patterns are tightly stitched onto an illusion base, forming the appearance of an applique. Embroidered lace pieces on a separate tulle layer creates depth and dimension in our Everly and Autumn gowns.
Chantilly lace is known for its fine ground, outline pattern and abundant detail. The pattern is outlined in cordennet, a flat untwisted strand. (If you’re a big fan of the vintage-inspired wedding dress look, tap the link!)
Brocade is a class of richly decorative shuttle-woven fabrics, often made in colored silks and with or without gold and silver threads. Our Dylan gown features a brocade-like print on Vega Organza fabric, which makes this dress much lighter than a traditional brocade style. For a little blast from the past, see our Essex and Ivana styles from Sottero and Midgley.
Originating from Alençon, France, this needlepoint lace is usually found with a floral design on a sheer or net background. Look closely at the details of our Connie gown. Alençon lace appliques are laid on a sheer tulle base to create a unique effect.
We’ve taken this otherwise simple fabric and made it sophisticated. Eyelet adds a touch of boho to your gown, channeling a vintage aesthetic while looking cool and unexpectedly modern. Trés chic!
