Crochet calls to mind handmade treasures, airy silhouettes, and delicate details. And for anyone with an appreciation for old-world charm, it’s a worthwhile fabric choice when shopping for your wedding day dress

While crochet dresses tend to have a beachy vibe—it’s the texture associated with many intricate, open-weave swimsuit coverups, after all—the options for bridalwear extend beyond just a ceremony on the shore. Crochet lace creates a three-dimensional effect on cocktail dresses, while full-body crochet on simplistic gown silhouettes feels refreshingly modern for a bride who wants to incorporate just a hint of boho style. And yes, should you be planning to say “I do” with your toes buried in the sand and saltwater in the air, the market for elevated and summery crochet dresses offers tons of styles that feel ethereal and much more elevated than your average summer dress.

Ahead, explore 20 of the best crochet wedding dresses on the market that feature artful, interlocking designs that will strike a chord with all types of brides and wedding styles.
