So it seems that lace is mucho popular with the wedding crowd, which I suppose shouldn’t be much of a shock. Lace these days doesn’t equal matronly and old fashioned as it used to! It really is a stellar accent on today’s modern gowns. Lace is also not just for the gown. I think lace cover ups and bridesmaids dresses are definitely the way to go. There is a certain elegance that only lace can give. Here are a few of my favorite gowns and whatnot.
Clockwise starting with the top middle photo: Nightcap Clothing, Badgley Mischka Bride, Vera Wang, Lazaro. I love any gown that has a surprising elegance all it’s own... and by adding an unexpected touch of lace or using lace in a different less traditional shape is so exciting!!! The gown doesn’t have to be head-to-toe lace! A gorgeous bodice with a funky silk satin skirt or a sheath style that comes across more bohemian than borderline granny will be just enough.
All of the coverups I’m showing are from BHLDN. As you know, BHLDN is my absolute favorite new wedding site. It’s brought to us by the good people at Anthropologie and it’s just the most ah-mazing place to find anything boho-vintage-chic. All of these coverups are delicate and sophisticated... definitely a piece to be remembered! I see this being a great heirloom. Styles of gowns will come and go, but a brilliant lace jacket will be timeless... and it’s nice because it can be taken off easily... so a bride of any era can get photos with it on. J’ADORE.
