Today’s lace bridesmaid dresses are playful and flirty. Contemporary designers create fashion-forward silhouettes out of fabric once reserved for vintage weddings, so you can have your pick of beautiful looks made from intricate, eye-catching lace. Soften a formal evening reception or bring lovely details to a garden wedding.
Lace bridesmaid dresses are having a moment. Taylor Swift celebrated a friend’s marriage in a bridesmaid dress with a beaded lace bodice. What’s more, lace took over Spring 2020 collections and graced the runway at Bridal Fashion Week.
The key is selecting the right style of lace bridesmaid dresses for the wedding theme. You have plenty to choose from, including vintage fit and flare dresses as well as contemporary mermaid gowns and classic sheath dresses. Consider personalizing lace dresses for these wedding themes:
Country farmhouse: Secluded farmhouse venues often produce incredible wedding day pictures. Style a short or tea-length lace dress with a cropped denim jacket and cute boots to play with contrast. It’s the perfect balance of rustic texture and wedding day elegance.
European garden party: Saying “I do” in the spring or summer? Lean into the season with an outdoor garden party wedding. Look for lace bridesmaid dresses with a sheath silhouette or a voluminous fit and flare skirt. Both styles have clean, sophisticated lines without being too formal.
Evening soiree: When you want to turn up the glamour, make floor-length lace your go-to look. Rock an all-lace bridesmaid dress that shimmers from neckline to hem. Complement the complex details of a fine lace bodice with an elegant skirt, and don’t shy away from sequins or other head-turning embellishments.
Bohemian rhapsody: Celebrate your wedding day with an easygoing bohemian aesthetic. It’s playful and perfect for couples who want a more relaxed celebration. Opt for off-the-shoulder lace dresses, crop top separates and earth tones like terracotta and sage.
