A lace wedding dress is one of the most traditional styles out there, and for many, the delicate and feminine fabric is synonymous with bridal gowns. To some, a lace dress may feel too formal and stuffy for a modern wedding day look, while others crave the intricacies of chantilly, guipure, broderie Anglaise, and Alencon lace. What’s more, not all lace wedding dresses are created equal. Some gowns feature an all-over lace design while others are simply accented or trimmed with the delicate material. So, whether you’re set on a lace wedding dress or need a little more convincing, we’ve rounded up scores of beautiful lace wedding dresses to inspire your bridal style. Of course, we’ve taken various venues, silhouettes preferences, aesthetics, and price points into account. Options range from timeless shapes like a sheath to A-line and mermaid silhouettes; sleeves and necklines vary from long to off-the-shoulder and strapless; and styles included bohemian details, traditional cuts, and modern designs. Heck, there are even sexy lace wedding dresses ahead. We told you, lace is versatile!
