Alas, wedding dresses designed by real brides! Grace Loves Lace, the brand behind the most-pinned wedding dress on Pinterest, spent the past year listening to over 80,000 brides in 80 countries to understand what real women want in a wedding dress. The feedback resulted in the brand's latest capsule collection: three gorgeous gowns under $2,050.
A-line silhouettes, high necklines, and slip-on styles as well as stretch lace and long sleeves were the most requested details—all design elements that proved to be no surprise to the Grace Loves Lace team. "We have always been very in tune with what women want—authenticity, high standards of ethics as to how their dress is designed and made, comfort, luxury that they can dance in," founder Megan Ziems explains to Brides.
Meet the Expert
Megan Ziems is the owner and founder of Australian bridal brand Grace Loves Lace, which she began in 2010.
For the effortless bride there's the "Anais," a V-neck lace gown with an A-line skirt, open back, and delicate eyelash trim. Traditional brides will be drawn to the "Vita," a long-sleeve number that's equal parts dramatic and elegant thanks to its full skirt and all-over lace. And show-stopping brides will love the "Luca," a re-imagined version of the brand's best-selling gown with shimmering pearl lace, a sultry low back, and fishtail silhouette.
"It’s exciting that they really have been created by what women have told us over the last year," Ziems adds. "We have 11 showrooms and our online boutique: we speak to a lot of women every year and this has allowed them to see how much we value their feedback."
The looks consider the opinions of all brides, too—from ages 18 to 60, sizes XXS to XXL to varying body shapes and bust sizes. The comfortable price point of under $2,050 was on purpose as well, with Ziems explaining, "We are passionate about offering wedding dresses at an accessible price point without the sacrifice of quality, skill, and authenticity."
