Lace and weddings go hand in hand and ever since Kate Middleton sashayed down the aisle in her Sarah Burton number, we’ve seen more and more Brides wearing it. Lace dresses are well and truly here to stay which we're thrilled about because not only is lace beautiful, it's also timeless. When it comes to wedding style and decor, lace works wonderfully with the other aspects of your day - reflecting delicate florals, contrasting with crisp elegant linen and echoing your classic De Beers bridal jewellery.
Wedding DressesLace comes in many forms, from the tiniest, prettiest floral details from designers like Sassi Holford and Alexandra Grecco, to the larger laser cut floral patterns we’ve seen recently on gowns by Halfpenny London and Hermione De Paula. We often find that Brides are surprised that they end up falling for a lace dress, thinking they will want something more contemporary, but there's a reason why it's a such an enduring fabric in the wedding world - the fall, the texture, the beautiful colours and the fact that lace is often handcrafted make it lovely to work with, resulting in a gorgeous dress.
Lace DecorDon't feel like you have to wear lace to incorporate it into your big day. Use it as a table runner as a nod to vintage in your tablescape. Source lace doilies as favours for the female guests. Lace bunting and ribbon can also be used in a manner of ways - around jars, delicately draped over surfaces, or strung up to add detail to an empty wall or ceiling.
BridesmaidsI love Bridesmaids in lace too, it's just such a elegant, feminine look. Especially in gorgeous shades like you'll find in our moodboard below. Whether it's a pretty top combined with a tulle skirt, lace sleeves or a full lace overlay, there's no denying how gorgeous these ladies look.
Lace & DiamondsThere's no combination more classic, elegant or Bridal as far as we're concerned. The production of a lace dress and a diamond ring is a process that involves time, care and the upmost of attention, which is why they work beautifully together. Your wedding day is a truly magical occasion and a once in a lifetime experience, so your dress and jewellery deserve to be special. The diamond engagement ring and earrings in our Wedding Dress moodboard are the Aria Earrings (stunning white diamonds set in white gold) and the truly classic Old Bond Street Ring (white diamonds set in platinum). The rings in the Lace Decor moodboard are from the intricate Adonis Rose collection, which mirrors the patterns in lace to perfection.
