When I say “lace wedding dress,” what’s the first image to come to your mind? For many, it’s the beautiful lace gown by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen (RIP…sigh) that the Duchess of Cambridge wore for her marriage to Prince William and for others it’s the iconic Grace Kelly’s gown wore for her wedding to Prince Rainier. Did you know that the lace for Grace’s dress was 125 year old Brussels rose point lace?
Quite often we think of lace as something old fashioned, stuffy, and reserved, but it doesn’t have to be. I have come up with a collection of lace gowns and sexy lace shoes that will turn heads and get tongues wagging. These pieces are definitely not for a shy bride. They are true statement pieces for the bride who loves lace, but that wants to really challenge the status quo.
Lace gowns can be transformed with plunging necklines, a mini hemline, see through panels, and thigh high slits. As for lace shoes, sexy lace up booties, ruffled accents, bold color, and a sky high stiletto heel brings the typical demure lace shoe to a super WOW! statement piece guaranteed to grab your guest’s attention. Here are just a sampling of some of the super sexy lace gowns and shoes that I came across in my quest to transform “yawn” in to “ooh la la!” I hope you find them fun and perhaps even consider them for your wedding. Take care all!

I can never get enough Jane Austen and this is the theme I will be using for my own wedding although not strictly Regency period.

I hope all of you moms had a great Mother’s Day weekend. Mine was lovely: a great gift from my kiddo- a HUGE decorated coffee cup (it’s literally almost as big as my head), brunch with the family, and my fiance got me a great gift as well. I wish my mom could have been there to celebrate with us, but I know she popped down from heaven for a bit to be there in spirit.
Today’s Monday’s Finding comes once again from Pinterest and is a decor combination that I just love: burlap and lace. It works for both rustic and vintage fetes and the look of something delicate paired with something rough. It’s a combination I am using for my own wedding next year and I hope these finds spark a little wedding decor creativity for you.
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock this past year, you’ll know that the Duchess of Cambridge set off a major wedding dress trend: the return of lace. Lace gowns were a huge presence last Bridal Market in October of last year and an even bigger presence in April’s Bridal Market last month.
Lace is back in a big way and why limit it to just your dress? From lace cake details to lace bands on your invites, incorporating the lace trend in to your special day comes in many forms. I’d love to hear how you plan to infuse your wedding with lace. Drop me a note in the comments section and let’s chat it up!
Here is a bit of lace inspiration for you on this Wedding Wednesday:
