When the topic is about lace, there will always be two categories of women in this world:
One who is a diehard fan and looks effortlessly elegant when she wears anything with lace. The other who has a deep hatred for lace because…well she just doesn’t look that good in lace.
You know that’s true.
You got to admit that lace is one of the greatest inventions in the world. Throw in some lace and a simple design can turn into an expensive looking piece! You will instantly turn from a typical girl next door into a symbol of beauty and class. Think of iconic figures like Grace Kelly and Kate Middleton. Their wedding dresses brought lace to a whole new level!
What’s more important is to select a gown that complements your style! You don’t want to wear something that makes people feel that you are trying too hard to emulate somebody.

#1 The bride who is a romantic at heart
Do you find tears rolling down when you watch any movie revolving around a love story? When you listen to sappy music, do you become so in tune with the lyrics that your mind starts to wander? You might probably think of yourself as a main character of some romantic adventure and the imagination starts to unfold?
Well, if you are guilty for doing the things above (you shouldn’t be, by the way), then it is your second nature to be romantic! You probably have a weakness to be serenaded to with love ballads and will invest lots of effort (and time) on handmade gifts. It might sound silly to others, but that’s your way of expressing your love! Your partner is so lucky to have you.
As a romantic at heart, you are likely to fall in love with this dress. The harmony between the flowing chiffon skirt and the lace appliques on the top is absolutely perfect in ladies who ever dreamt about whisking the aisle, like a damsel who is no longer in distress. Not to mention, the capped lace sleeves will bring out the girliness in you!
Of course, the back of the gown is not neglected. With the chantilly wedding lace meticulously stitched onto the mesh on the back, you can bet that your guests will deeply mesmerised by the beauty of this gown and the illusion lace back.
#2 The bride who is feminine and classy!
You are likely the kind of bride who is labelled as ladylike among your friends. When you hear a funny joke or witness something hilarious, people will never catch you breaking into raucous laughter or snort when you hear a funny joke! Instead, you will giggle politely. You will never be caught dead participating in uncouth topics too….or uncouth mannerisms (e.g burping).
If there’s a crime for this, it’s probably just how proper you are! This doesn’t mean you are totally girly. It’s just that you are well-mannered and behave in such a way that spur your female peers to behave ‘appropriately’ around you! Your partner probably fell in love with you because of how you carry yourself with class and elegance!
Hence, the most suitable wedding gown is one that is fully laced without that overwhelming effect. You will notice the delicate lace and the shimmering crystals are sewn close to one another, like lovers who will never separate and shine brighter when put together. What’s more, the only revealing bit of this piece is the back, with the deep V line that ends on the waistline. This is great for those who want to go for a gown that has that jaw-dropping effect without showing too much!
Just like the model in this photo, you can bun up your hair to reveal the nape of your neck. Your man will definitely be blown away by this ethereal look and of course, your elegance.

Your ideal lace gown should be one where your guests can easily differentiate the elements of the design.

To achieve the illusion of a smaller waist, you can add a beaded sash!
Plus, the laced bodice doesn’t just stop at the waistline. It is extended to the hips of the ivory tulle skirt, which is something you don’t see in most gowns. Not to mention, the silhouette of the gown will complement your figure and make you much more slender!

It is no surprise that you prefer to be at background and not be under the limelight for too long.
