Style Guide: Lovely In Lace

The love story between lace and wedding gowns is a classic one, and our Morilee dresses are no exception! From bodices to sleeves and trains, lace can be beautiful as the main event or a dainty accent. Whatever the season, a lacey gown is always charming and always a good idea! And for such a romantic fabric, one type just isn’t enough! Let’s break down what makes each of these laces so unique.

Chantilly Lace

The most popular type used on wedding gowns, this ultra-sheer and intricately detailed lace is lightweight and looks stunning as a frosted adornment or sparkling with sequins. Great on sleeves and overlays, it’ll give the gown that extra something special! The Aria dress combines delicate detail, with its soft tulle over frosted Chantilly lace, while the mermaid silhouette helps create a sultry shape!

Alençon Lace

Around since the 16th century, it’s hard not to fall in love with this delicate French fabric with its dreamy floral pattern. Often used to create glittering beaded appliqués, you’ll absolutely swoon over! The romantic and figure-flattering Allison is the perfect example! The high-hip mermaid is covered in frosted, Alençon lace from the lovely sweetheart bodice down to the wide, scalloped hemline.

Venice Lace

Very different from the delicate quality of Chantilly and Alencon, Venetian lace has a firmer quality. For the bride who loves depth and structure, this one is for you! The exquisite Venice lace takes center stage on the Alexandria dress! The allover lace helps to accentuate the soft, fit-to-flare shape and luxe long sleeves.

Embroidered Lace

Giving the appearance of a 3-D texture, embroidered lace is the perfect compliment to illusion features on a dress. Brinley’s sleek and sohpisticated shape is accented by delicate pearl and crystal beaded, emboridered lace appliqués. With an illusion neckline, sheer, detachable sleeves, and a dainty bow, it’s the perfect blend of feminine and chic!
