Lace has been strong since The Duchess of Cambridge had it for her wedding dress, although we featured lace for a number of years before. The Duchess made the fabric more acceptable to more brides than it would have been before.
The use of lace has changed slightly over the years from demure, elegant, sophisticated but mainly vintage. The vintage element has been a strong look and the barn venues have also influenced this style of wedding. However, we are finding that not all couples are wanting the big traditional wedding any more and are opting for a more relaxed and intimate affair. This has shifted the look of a brides dress to complement this setting with more fluid and low key styles.
The more bohemian look has moved the vintage style on with a move to the slightly more fun and dreamy styles. Net, fine lace or embroidery and lightweight gowns are embracing the magazines and we see a move towards these styles in store. Our Rembo Styling range is all about this look and feel, suiting a relaxed garden party style or destination wedding.
Lace is still strong in a more traditional style dress too. The laces are being used as all overs and maybe now leaning towards part lace and floaty combinations. Very feminine and dreamy. Our Augusta Jones covers this look to perfection for us.
Lace will always be beautiful and special. There are so many lace type fabrics which also capture this style but our laces are the real thing. Some sourced from France which are considered the best too. Real lace is soft to the touch and has a very special feel to wear.
Here are just a few of our popular lace wedding gowns from all our designers.
