Lace Wedding Dress FAQs

What does lace mean on a wedding dress?

It was a painstaking process to create the fabric, requiring months of hand stitching to create the intricate weaves and patterns. Thus, lace wedding dresses were a symbol of wealth, showing that you had the money and social standing to afford this fabric. For brides who couldn’t afford a full lace gown, they would often take pieces, known as appliqués, and add bits of what they could afford onto a gown, making something like a satin and lace wedding dress. To feature elaborate lace on a wedding dress was a sign of prestige, with famous figures such as Queen Victoria and Elizabeth Taylor increasing its popularity.
