Lace has to be one of my favorite trends of this year. Well, it’s been popular for a while now, and I’m glad it’s here to stay. I can’t imagine the day when this goes out of style. There are so many ways to incorporate lace into your nuptials, whether you opt for a more traditional affair or keep it casual. Lace pairs great with a pop of color and is also stunningly beautiful in white – just take Kate Middleton for example! With the romantic, elegant and vintage feel that lace brings to the table, it’s hard to turn down the trend! Many brides are opting for lace for their big day – and in more ways than one. Here are a few unique ideas of how to go lace crazy. Feel free to use just one or all of them!
Add a touch of class to your wedding invitations by incorporating some lace. It will give guests a taste of what your wedding will look like. Depending on how you would like your invitations designed, lace can give them a vintage, rustic feel or modern sophistication! Lace is such a versatile material that it can be used in everything from 80s revival invites to Victorian-era type cards.
Lace dresses have been seen on brides for quite some time. They seem to never go out of style – and there’s a reason for that! This delicate fabric can be incorporated into the dress in a variety of ways. If you’re looking for just a touch of lace, consider adding a lace sash around your gown to give your dress that extra wow-factor. Illusion necklines are one of my favorite trends (and a great alternative to strapless gowns) – and lace works so well for providing a sophisticated yet simple bridal look.
Create a rustic bouquet by wrapping a bit of lace around the stem. It’s an easy way to transform your arrangement into whimsical and feminine blooms. Martha Stewart Weddings suggested using lace from your veil to pull the whole look together. Or, how about for something borrowed? Use the lace from a passed-down gown for a timeless treasure on your wedding day.
Lace can go on more than fabric and florals – why not turn your wedding confection into a gorgeous, vintage cake? Traditional white lace upon a white cake is perfect for any nuptials. However, if you’re looking for a little something more out of the ordinary, Belle the Magazine suggests a black cake contrasted with white lace. Or, the other way around – white cake with black lace! You really can’t go wrong.
