Lovely in LACE

Putting A Modern Spin On A Timelessly Feminine Fabric

Lace Wedding Gown

Lace was once considered a symbol of affluence since only the wealthy could afford such a prestigious material. Queen Victoria popularized the fabric by wearing lace trim on her wedding gown, and soon the tradition stuck. The intricate material still has a vintage appeal, but these aren’t your grandmother’s lace wedding gowns. Designers are freshening the concept by adding appliqués and soft layers for a modern glamour. Today lace continues to be adored for its peek-a-boo quality, a mix of modesty, sensuality and pure femininity.
