Lace can also look both cool and contemporary or sophisticated and classic. Today, though, we’re all about romance. Below our Bridal Experts have picked out four stunningly pretty lace wedding dresses that are the perfect match for dreamy sunlit wedding days and softly romantic styling. Enjoy!

Graceful lace

Let’s start with Ariane, another Platinum Edition masterpiece. This full-sleeved A-line has a sequinned Chantilly lace underlayer topped with delicate floral embroidered appliqués. These have been finished with thousands of pearlescent glass beads that glitter beautifully as they catch the light.

The bodice features an attractive dipped V-neckline and full-length sleeves made from fine lace. At the back, there are more pretty florals and a chic row of covered buttons. The A-line skirt also has lace running all the way down the length of the magical train. To show it off to the full, try this skirt with one or even two of our underskirts for maximum volume. Then finish off with a sparkling belt to add interest and definition to your waistline.

Retro romance

Delightful Dollie reveals how lace can also create an elegant vintage feel. This attractive tea length has a flattering off-the-shoulder neckline made from pretty scalloped lace and three-quarter-length sleeves covered with dainty lace appliqués. The sweetheart bodice underneath is cute, comfortable and supportive. It also sits high at the back to hide a bra strap.

Dollie's bouncy skirt is perfect for twirling on the dance floor. It features more lace appliqués, that have been carefully placed across the skirt, and a hem edged in detailed scalloped lace. Wear this with our shorter underskirt for even more volume then treat yourself to the perfect pair of vintage style dancing shoes!

Lace with wow factor

Kelsey makes a real statement with lace. This dazzling mermaid style has a breathtaking illusion back with striking appliqués that run down the centre in ornate swirls and leaves. There are also subtle sequins that sparkle prettily under natural light. It really is sensational.

Tear your eyes away from the stunning back and at the front, there’s a classic V-neckline and a bodice decorated with corded lace appliqués. The skirt then skims the hips beautifully before flaring out in a decadent froth of delightful, rippling tulle. A dress like this can handle a little more detail, so try it with our glittering Sapphire belt and Odetta hair comb, too.

Love is in the air

Finally, we have gorgeous Marianne, one of our Platinum Edition designs. It combines a beautiful ballgown skirt with intricate lace for a look that’s just made for true romantics. Exquisite floral lace covers the bodice and the three-quarter-length sleeves and there’s a striking plunging neckline, edged with soft eyelash lace. There are also discreet illusion panels for plenty of coverage.

At the back, there’s even more illusion lace and a neat row of covered buttons leading the eye down to the full A-line skirt, made from super soft tulle. For a classically romantic look, wear this with our stunning Monae veil, edged in the prettiest embroidered lace, and finish with a truly classic tiara
