22 Dec Exclusive Alterations Bridal Lace Guide
Bridal lace can transform every wedding dress into a stunning work of art.
Here is all you need to know about the top five types of wedding lace.
- Chantilly Lace
Chantilly lace, named after the city in France, is produced by manually twisting and braiding fine silk threads strung on a number of bobbins. It is distinguished by the fine intricacy of its designs, as well as its lightness, and elegant look. Chantilly lace is an all-time fashion infatuation, adored by many premium wedding fashion designers worldwide. Choose a classy design with a silky finish, such as sequined and beaded Chantilly lace with flower appliques.
- Corded Lace
Corded lace is created by outlining lace elements with a heavier or shinier cording. Originally called Alencon lace, it is created by highlighting features in a pattern with a cord, giving these laces a somewhat rough appearance. The cording itself can be quite thin and delicate, emphasising the patterns in the lace design. Alternatively, the cording might be thicker and more voluminous.
- Embroidered Lace
In the couture sector, richly adorned embroidered lace reflects the sparkle and glamour of wedding dress materials. Your fantasy gown may be embellished with sequins, beads, and glittering Swarovski crystals. Choose delicate and silky satin stitch embroidery with a stunning 3-dimensional flower motif to add a romantic flair to your wedding gown.
- Guipure Lace
Guipure lace is one of the most beautiful fabrics for bridal gowns, also known as Venetian Lace. Beautiful guipure flowers may appear to be appliques, yet they are all part of needlework. Continuous motifs are interconnected, resulting in a more elevated design that often includes floral or geometric elements.
The pattern is created with a sequence of densely packed embroidered threads applied to a delicate fabric. As with our other varieties of lace, the background fabric is not visible in the finished item.
This type of lace can be attached to the bodice, skirt, or fringe of a dress.
- Lyon Lace
Lyon lace is a type of lace made of pure light-weight cotton woven on a lightweight tulle and highlighted with a cord thread.
This classic historical lace looks best when paired with lightweight netting and is usually applied in parts to any clothing in need of a sophisticated finish. Lyon lace has a blossoming floral pattern on a beautifully embroidered netting with elegant frills on both edges.
Whatever bridal lace design you select, bear in mind that it should attract attention to your best features without being excessive.
