I design my wedding gowns to be the perfect blend of elegance and flirtation. I like to use vintage couture lace in my designs and weave in glamorous embellishments like hand-sewn Swarovski crystals. It’s the perfect marriage of traditional style with a hint of sexy that highlights the bride’s natural beauty while giving her a bit of glam. – Martine Harris, Chief Creative Officer
Types of Lace
Lace transitions beautifully from day to evening and, depending on the type of lace, can be worn all year long. One of the most popular types of lace is Alençon. Venetian lace, also known as Guipure lace, is another popular lace found on many lace wedding dresses today. Chantilly is very fine and airy lace, while Brussels is a very delicate and elaborate lace not seen much these days. Eyelet lace isn’t considered a “true” lace, as it’s made from cotton; but it’s still a great choice for a summer wedding.
Memorable (and famous) Lace Wedding Dresses
Flattering, beautiful and timeless, lace has been around since 4000 B.C. In modern times, it’s made its mark as a must-have for famous brides. Queen Victoria wore a lace-trimmed white wedding gown to marry Prince Albert of Germany. Grace Kelly wore an elaborate rose point lace wedding dress with silk faille and silk tulle. For her second wedding, Jayne Mansfield wore a lace mermaid gown. More recently, Kate Middleton donned a wedding dress of lace appliques stitched onto netting. And, George Clooney’s bride Amal looked gorgeous in her French lace dress.
