Best Lace Wedding Dresses for 2023
Lace is the go-to fabric for vintage-loving brides – it’s the epitome of bridal elegance and it’s still a must-have wedding detail for 2023.
Whether you love all-over lace, delicate overlays or subtle skirt and bodice embellishments, lace is here to stay for weddings in 2023.
If you don’t want to go the whole hog, why not try a simple lace-edged veil? The three different types of lace are usually:
- Chantilly lace – a handmade bobbin lace featuring a netted background
- Alencon lace – an ornate needle lace with a floral design on a sheer net
- Venice lace – a much heavier type of lace, with a needlepoint design featuring floral bunches, foliage, or other patterns
