What lace wedding dress personality are you?
Have you been dreaming of walking down the aisle in a stunning lace wedding dress? Well, you’re not alone. According to our latest survey, lace is the most popular detail brides want on their wedding dress. The great thing about lace is that it is such a versatile material. Draped in soft layers it can look floaty and bohemian or it can make a classic sweetheart bodice look fit for a princess. Alternatively, a curve-hugging sheath, covered in delicate lace, is the ultimate in sultry and sexy design. So many choices!
Find your lace wedding dress personality…
So, are you boho or classic? Regal or seductive? We just adore lace and below we have four fabulous new gowns that showcase our gorgeous lace in totally different ways. Just read on to find your perfect style and by the end we're sure you'll love lace just as much as we do!
Dainty Lilah is every boho bride’s dream. This slim A-line dress features a lightweight chiffon skirt, delicate straps and a super pretty bodice, fully covered in embroidered lace and intricate beading.
Take a closer look and you’ll see how exquisite the beaded lace is. The beading is also designed to have a contouring effect, leading the eyes towards your nipped in waist and the unique crossover illusion neckline.
Relaxed and supportive
At the back there’s more beautiful beading, covering the straps and the entire bodice, alongside a neat row of chic covered buttons. The high back also offers a little extra support, which can be hard to find in softer styles like this one.[caption id="attachment_21072" align="aligncenter" width="797"] Wedding dress featured: Lilah by Heidi Hudson[/caption]
Light as air
The simple chiffon skirt is delicately gathered at the waist for a full and floaty feel. It is perfect for brides looking for comfort and movement and it’s the ideal style for a wedding abroad. There’s also no need to wear an underskirt with this lightweight look. Simply pair it with our dainty Autumn headband, simple Willa veil and sparkling Estella belt to highlight your waistline. If you like this look, you might also like pretty Adalia. Alternatively, for a lace wedding dress with sleeves, try Henny or Daya instead.
By royal appointment
Platinum Edition Brilyn is a lace wedding dress that will make princess brides fall in love all over again! This off-the-shoulder, A-line design is the perfect showcase for the ornate lace that covers it from head to toe. It has also been heavily embroidered with pearls, crystals and beads, for a totally luxurious effect.
The stunning bodice really is breathtaking. The off-the-shoulder straps give this dress an incredibly feminine look, which doesn’t compromise on support. Then there’s the ornate lace, which has been covered with more pearls, beads and crystals than you can count. It really is just heavenly![caption id="attachment_21068" align="aligncenter" width="797"] Wedding dress featured: Brilyn by Viva Bride Platinum Edition[/caption]
The unique straps look just as stunning from the back, and work perfectly with the low neckline and pretty buttons. We love this look with our crystal and pearl Evie hairslide, which beautifully complements the embellishment on the dress.
Fit for a princess
The show-stopping skirt is flattering for all figures and features sparkling sequin tulle and an intricately embroidered lace hem. It also has plenty of bounce and structure, thanks to a hidden horsehair braid. You can wear it with our 153 and 163 underskirts too, for even more volume. A dress with this much wow factor only needs a few accessories, and a matching lace veil and a sparkling belt complete the look perfectly!
Stand out from the crowd
Marko is a great example of seductive, contemporary lace, for brides who really want to make a statement. This sexy sheath features unique botanical lace, an incredible illusion back and a magnificent train that will ensure all eyes are on you when you make your entrance.
The bodice has flattering cap sleeves and a soft plunging neckline, all embellished with gorgeous modern botanical lace, inspired by tropical florals.[caption id="attachment_21075" align="aligncenter" width="797"] Wedding dress featured: Marko by the Signature Collection[/caption]
Turn around and you’ll reveal the wow-factor illusion back. It showcases the floral lace to full effect while providing plenty of discreet support. You can complement the lace with some matching accessories too, such as our floral Lorelei comb and our crystal covered Solstice belt.
A masterpiece in lace
The stunning skirt is what your guests will be talking about long after the wedding has finished. Falling in elegant ripples on the floor, the sparkly sequin underlayer and climbing floral lace combine to create a look that is truly out of this world!
Finally, we have classically romantic Kitty, a flattering, A-line style with beautiful floral detailing and stunning, embellished sleeves. We think lace lovers will just adore it!
The lace is the stand-out feature here, and the bodice is entirely covered with beautiful floral lace that cascades down the skirt and the dreamy, three-quarter-length sleeves. The V neckline also frames the décolletage perfectly, while the gorgeous sleeves are ideal for brides who would like to cover the tricky upper arm area.[caption id="attachment_21070" align="aligncenter" width="797"] Wedding dress featured: Kitty by Anna Sorrano[/caption]
Pretty as a picture
Turn around and you’ll see that the back is just as breathtaking. The stylish illusion neckline provides coverage and support and is the perfect base for the pretty lace. There’s also a chic row of covered buttons to draw all eyes down to the enchanting skirt.
The softest tulle
The simple skirt is made from super soft tulle, which is a great match for the scattered lace appliqués. To show the skirt off to its absolute best we suggest wearing it with our 163 underskirt too. We also love this design styled with our delicate scalloped-edge Angel veil, complete with glittering teardrop beading. Alternatively, if you love this look but would like something different for the evening, why not try strapless Nina instead? Simply wear Nina with one of our stunning lace boleros to create two looks in one!
