LACE WEDDING DRESSES

 

 

 

Lace wedding dresses are a popular choice for brides who want to achieve a timeless and elegant look on their special day. Lace adds a touch of romance and sophistication to bridal gowns, and there are various styles and designs to choose from. Here are some features and styles commonly associated with lace wedding dresses:

 

1.Types of Lace: There are different types of lace used in wedding dresses, including chantilly lace, alençon lace, guipure lace, and more. Each type has its own unique texture and pattern, offering a range of options for brides.

 

2.Silhouette: Lace wedding dresses come in various silhouettes, such as A-line, ball gown, mermaid, sheath, and more. The choice of silhouette depends on the bride’s body shape and personal preferences.

 

3.Neckline: Lace bridal gowns can have a variety of neckline options, including sweetheart, V-neck, off-the-shoulder, illusion neckline, and high neckline. The neckline style can greatly influence the overall look of the dress.

 

 

4.Sleeves: Some brides opt for lace sleeves for a more traditional or modest look. Common sleeve styles include long sleeves, three-quarter sleeves, cap sleeves, and illusion sleeves.

 

5.Back Detail: Many lace wedding dresses feature intricate lace detailing on the back. This can include a low back with lace appliqués, a keyhole back, or a completely lace-covered back.

 

6.Train: The train length can vary, with options ranging from short to cathedral-length trains. Longer trains are often seen in more formal and luxurious wedding dresses.

 

7.Color: While white and ivory are the traditional colors for wedding dresses, some brides opt for alternative colors like blush, champagne, or even colored lace overlays for a unique look.

 

8.Bodice and Skirt: The lace can be incorporated into both the bodice and the skirt of the dress. Some dresses have a fully lace-covered bodice and skirt, while others may have lace accents or overlays.

 

9.Embellishments: Some luxury lace wedding dresses may have additional embellishments like beading, sequins, or crystals to add extra sparkle and glamour.

 

10.Veil: Brides often pair lace wedding dresses with lace-edged veils for a cohesive and elegant look.

 

When shopping for a luxury lace wedding dress, it’s essential to consider your body shape, personal style, and wedding theme. Try on different styles to see what suits you best, and work with a professional bridal consultant to find the perfect dress that makes you feel beautiful and confident on your wedding day. Keep in mind that lace wedding dresses may require special care, so make sure to clean and preserve your gown correctly after the wedding.

Gwen wore a shorter version of her ceremony dress for the reception which featured a corseted bodice and a tulle skirt that was embroidered with two love birds, a symbol of the couple and three baby love birds representing her children.  She accessorised her mini dress with sparkling earrings, gold bangle bracelets and a cross necklace. Stefani complemented her final look with a pair of white cowboy boots. 

“You need a party dress when you get to marry Blake Shelton ” she wrote on her Instagram.
