Lace Wedding Dresses
Nothing, perhaps, epitomises bridal style quite like lace. A perennial staple in collections the world over, the lust-have material has always been a popular choice because it's both naturally beautiful and wonderfully versatile, being as befitting on a boho bride as it is on a vintage or modern en vogue one.
With hundreds of different types with often-exotic names including Chantilly, Guipure and Valenciennes, lace is a designer's favourite fabric, being continually reimagined and reworked to maintain a classic, ultra romantic air while woven into the most cutting-edge and bespoke designs.
From chic eyelet lace to delicately floral-inspired Alençon and dotted Point D’Esprit for a bohemian-meets-vintage vibe to elegant embroidered styles and allover knit lace perfect for a sense of modern romance, there's an abundance of choice, whatever your desired look.
Floral, macrame, beaded and crochet lace are all the rage on the runways, fusing a timeless aesthetic with modern haute couture. Up the ante with more graphic versions such as geometric and mosaic lace for the most fashion-forward frocks, or pare back the look with lace accents like panels and eyelash-trims for a more demure take on the trend.
Here's some of the latest, most-wanted lace gowns to have found their fresh-from-the-runway homes in bridal boutiques across Cornwall & Devon...
