Lace wedding dresses combine the most romantic day of your life with the most romantic of fabrics. The art of lace-making can be traced all the way back to the 15th century, but lace wedding gowns saw a dramatic spike in popularity after Kate Middleton wore a long sleeve lace wedding dress in 2011. Since then, countless brides have dreamed of wearing elegant wedding dresses with lace accents. For a vintage look, consider ivory lace to lend your gown old-fashioned charm. For a more modern style, try on a lace mermaid gown. A short lace wedding dress can be rich in retro appeal, especially when paired with a bold lip and statement shoes! Once you’ve found the perfect lace gown, add sparkly bridal jewelry to catch the light, or double down on texture with a beaded bridal clutch or a pair of lace wedding shoes.
If you love the idea of an intricately detailed gown but lace isn’t quite your style, take a peek at our beaded wedding dresses! Wedding dresses with beading are perfect for the bride seeking extra sparkle. Add just a touch of subtle shimmer with beading scattered atop lace or applique, or go bold with allover beading. We especially love beaded gowns that nod to the glamorous styles of the Art Deco era with slinky silhouettes and lots of sparkle.
