The Fashion Week
catwalks in New York, London and Milan were dripping with romantic lace
. Many designers paired the feminine embellishment with hard accents (think zippers, leather) or competing textures (fur, feathers). And the finished looks were inspiring.
To create a romantic
atmosphere at your wedding ceremony and reception
, try incorporating lace into your bridal style and wedding decor. A lace wedding dress
is a timeless option, and you can search hundreds of lace gowns in our designer wedding dress gallery
. You also can't go wrong with a lace bridal veil or sash.
But what about more unexpected ways to incorporate lace? The options are endless! BHLDN
has a few lovely lace dresses for your bridesmaids, and you must check out their lace lingerie for your honeymoon. Va va va voom! You can find chic bridal heels with lace overlay (like the Alexander McQueen stunners above), a lace-embellished clutch, or a romantic Chantilly lace shrug or bolero.
To take your romantic wedding style to another level, how about gorgeous wedding invitations
featuring a band of lovely lace? I stumbled upon Oh So Sweet Prints
in the Etsy weddings section, and words can't describe the prettiness of these wedding invites! You can also incorporate a lace design on your wedding cake, or add real lace touches to your wedding reception tablescape.
