How About a Lace Wedding Dress?

Lace wedding dresses have always been popular.  In days gone by, lace was handmade, usually by the mother of the bride.  More recently, it is produced using machines and stitched on to the dress.

Most lace dresses made at Beau Belles use the applique method.  This is when the lace is sewn on to another material, such as organza, satin or tulle.

The picture shows part of the train.  As well as the lace, beads or sequins can be sewn in to give the dress more sparkle and richness.

The lace can be in the same colour as the dress or a contrasting colour, such as in this picture where the lace is gold.  Again, the colour can add interest to the wedding dress.


Since lace is semi-transparent, it is always used with another material for the body of the dress.  In areas such as over the shoulders this is not the case and it is sometimes sewn on to tulle.

Here are a few lace wedding dresses at Beau Belles.
