Top 20 lace wedding dress looks


lace wedding dress

An iconic staple of bridal design, lace is not new to the world of wedding dresses – the timeless, feminine fabric has appealed to brides for generations for its luxurious feel and ‘bride-like’ quality. Saying that, the lace look cannot be described as traditional, the material has been revamped with the addition of appliques, trims and overlays, and paired with fashion-forward, plunging necklines and illusion backs.

Here’s our top 20 lace wedding dresses…

Head-to-toe

Fully embrace lace with a wedding dress that features the material from top-to-toe.

The Galia Lahav collection demonstrates how sexy lace can be; with low cut tops, cut out side panels, and midriff baring crop tops.

Lace top

If all-over lace doesn’t appeal, there are lots of wedding dresses styles featuring it on the bodice only – from Maggie Sottero’s design with applique detail on an illusion neckline, to the pretty cap sleeves on the Jenny Lee Bridal dress.

Lace sleeves

Lace sleeves are elegant, sophisticated and very much on trend for Fall/Winter 2016 and into 2017.

Modest sleeves act as great accompaniments to low cut wedding dresses, because they can balance out the look from spicy to more modest.
