Unlike smooth fabrics like chiffon and satin, lace adds eye-catching texture and depth to any silhouette. This gorgeous fabric comes in many iterations from delicate and intricate to modern and graphic. Even better? Lace is highly versatile, timeless, and even season-less. So, if you’re looking for bridesmaid dresses that will stand apart from the rest, opt for styles adorned with beautiful lace. 

While lace bridesmaid dresses are perfect for the classic and traditional bride, there are plenty of styles out there that cater to every aesthetic. For those with minimalist tastes, opt for dresses that feature subtle accents of lace. Searching for something more statement-making? Gowns in all-over lace coupled with intricate beadwork always leave a lasting impression. And if you're going for mismatched bridesmaid dresses, consider adding a few lace styles into the mix for a jaw-dropping look.

From elegant floor-length gowns to summer-ready mini dresses, we've rounded up the best lace bridesmaid dresses for every style and body type.
