This Week I'm Loving ... Weddings with Lace!

Whether you are traditional, classic, conservative or even contemporary, lace can most definitely have a role in your wedding.

No longer considered stuffy or demode, lace is appearing in various elements in wedding design.

The most visible statement you can make with lace is with, of course, your wedding gown. These gowns featured by Angel Rivera and Oscar de la Renta perfectly illustrate how a gown can be carried off in a traditional, classic and stylish manner.

A "soft" hint of your love of lace can be seen even in your wedding invitation design just like this spectacular couture design by Amy Morelli with The 2u Collection:

This package wrapped in lace {via "Oh, hello friend."} can make for an adorable ring bearer's box!

You can carry the style and look of lace throughout your wedding by mimicking your dress design on your cake, or simple touches in the special details throughout the day.

Lace inspiration is everywhere and it has a stronger presence than ever. From women's fashion, to home decor and, of course, WEDDINGS, I'm delighted to see lace take center stage.

Perhaps this quote by Coco Chanel says it all?
“I consider lace to be one of the prettiest imitations ever made of the fantasy of nature; lace always evokes for me those incomparable designs which the branches and leaves of trees embroider across the sky, and I do not think that any invention of the human spirit could have a more graceful or precise origin.”
