There’s nothing quite like an elegantly classic lace wedding dress. It’s a timeless look that just won’t date. Lace is also such a versatile choice. It can look chic and contemporary or retro and vintage. Some lace adds subtle, understated prettiness while another will add wow factor, glitter and sparkle. 

Our expert bridal consultants have picked four of their favourite lace designs, one from each of our collections, to help you choose the perfect lace wedding dress. Each one has something different to offer and we hope, by the time you’ve finished reading, you’ll share our love of luxurious lace!

Classic style

Anna Sorrano is the expert when it comes to modern classic designs and Michaela fits the bill perfectly. This true fishtail silhouette is made from ivory tulle with soft embroidered and Chantilly lace running the length of the dress. There’s also just a hint of sparkle from a delicate scattering of sequins.

Look closely at the bodice and you’ll see it’s blooming with intricate petals and flowers that cover the dress from the sweetheart neckline to the elegant hem.

Lace looks magnificent flowing behind you in a classic train and the swirling lace appliqués here are just breathtaking. Try it with our regal Alexi tiara too, which is the perfect match for this sophisticated look.

True romance

Beautiful Sharisse, from our Viva Bride collection, is full of fairytale romance. This A-line style, in blush or ivory, has a pretty lace bodice that really is fit for a modern princess. We love this new style of embroidered lace too, with its finely detailed rose and floral silhouettes inspired by a traditional English garden.

The on-trend plunging neckline has discreet illusion panels, so there's plenty of coverage, and pretty straps that flare into a triangle shape to flow freely into the cute sweetheart neckline.

The gorgeous A-line skirt is scattered with a mix of small and extra large appliqués, continuing the floral theme, all finished with a shower of sparkling sequins. We can’t imagine a prettier style for princess brides looking for a fun statement dress!

It’s an understated dress but the exquisite lace gives it a beautiful bridal feel. Try it with our equally simple Willa veil to complement the boho mood perfectly.
