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 Shelly A-line gown featuring a soft net over frosted Chantilly lace skirt is what boho dreams are made of!

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 for the shiny effect! And on the Surim ball gown, there’s no denying how magical this lace looks twinkling on the v-neck bodice.  

Guipure Lace

Very different from the delicate quality of Chantilly and Alencon, this Venetian lace has a firmer quality. For the bride who loves depth and structure, this one is for you! Decorating the high illusion neckline and bodice on the Kayleigh gown, the stiff texture of the guipure lace contrasts elegantly with the flowy ballgown skirt.

Embroidered Lace

Giving the appearance of a 3-D texture, embroidered lace is the perfect compliment to illusion features on a dress. We can’t get enough of the twinkling beaded embroidered lace cascading down the sleeves and bodice of the Stevie gown.  

With looks this enchanting it’s easy to see why lace is queen of the wedding gown!
