Lace Wedding Gowns

So many ladies plan their future wedding dress with something lacy in mind. Yet, when it comes time to actually take a peek at some lacy bridal gowns, things get kind of complicated. Chantilly? Spanish Lace? Cotton? Does the difference even matter?

 

For the brides among us who have dreamt of wearing a lace wedding gown since childhood but don’t know where to start, here’s a quick rundown on some things to know about lace.

 

Chantilly Lace: The most common and often the cheapest lace option, Chantilly lace was popular with Marie Antoinette. Its production ceased during the French Revolution. Back in style now, Chantilly lace is made in black or white with floral patterns and half stiches used to create the illusion of shadow and depth. The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, wore a mix of Chantilly Lace with traditional English Lace for her Wedding.

Alencon: Likely the most elaborate needlepoint lace created out of France, Alencon makes a stunning hemmed edge to cathedral length wedding gowns and veils.

 

Guipure Lace: A dense and demure floral lace, guipure makes an excellent scalloped hem or overlay across sheer fabric. This Jennifer wedding gown with organza ruffles and a tightly fitting bodice is a perfect way to showcase such a flexibly stylish lace.

 

Eyelash Lace: Generally used as a hem for skirt dusters or Mantilla veils, eyelash lace is named for the tufts of single stitched fabric lining hems.
