Best Lace Wedding Dresses for 2020
Lace is the go-to fabric for vintage-loving brides. It’s the epitome of bridal elegance and it’s still a must-have wedding detail as we head in to 2020.
Forget restrictive all-over lace styles, though. As the new decade approaches, lace is much more light and feminine, with delicate overlays and subtle skirt and bodice embellishments.
You can give lace wedding dresses a modern twist by teaming them with sparkly or oversized pearl accessories, as seen at Sassi Holford. We love the long strings, chunky cuff and simple pearl drop earrings.
Teaming lace with a sexy silhouette will also bring it bang up to date. Look for fabulous fishtail styles to really wow your guests as you walk down the aisle.
Brides that are scared of looking old fashioned should try a simple lace-edged veil. Look for different types of lace – three being used widely in bridal designs this year are…
- Chantilly lace- a handmade bobbin lace featuring a netted background
- Alencon lace – an ornate needle lace with a floral design on a sheer net and…
- Venice lace – a much heavier type of lace, with a needlepoint design featuring floral bunches, foliage, or other patterns
