All lace bridesmaid dresses are fast becoming the latest wedding trend. Vintage or modern, short or long, bright-coloured or neutral, a lace dress is unmistakeably feminine and elegant. It has become one of the most-loved fabrics for wedding gowns over the past couple of years, and hence so many designers are now using it for bridesmaid dresses as well.
From exquisite hand-made laces to the more affordable machine-woven materials, you can find lace bridesmaid dresses that fit your style and budget. You can also add just a subtle hint of luxury with lavish lace detailing on a frock that is made of chiffon or tulle.
Bridesmaid trends for 2017 include asymmetric one-shoulder dress shapes, two-piece outfits, bohemian frocks and mismatched looks. Embellishments, elaborate detailing on the backs and ethereal tulle overlays are going to be as well, and colourful floral patterns printed on laces are slowly forming a new trend.
Translucent laces are sexy! They are normally used in combination with non-transparent materials that are worn underneath, but sometimes the dresses are designed to reveal a lot of skin. If your wedding gown is a seductive lace number, why not let the bridesmaids look slightly provocative too!
Bohemian chic remains to be inspiration for brides in 2017, and there is nothing that describes this theme better than lace. Loose waists, belled sleeves, cascading ruffles and other trends influenced by the 1970’s made their way from ready-to-wear catwalks to bridesmaid dress collections and we love how flamboyant some of the looks are. Bohemian style is ideal if you want to pull of the mismatched trend because you can combine different silhouettes, various types of laces or even opt for a rainbow of pastel hues instead of choosing one single shade.
Fashionable colours for bridesmaid lace dresses include sky blue, cerulean, blush pink, taupe, mauve, light and dark grey, navy, burgundy red, champagne, white and black. Multi-coloured floral designs and separates that match two contrasting shades are also in right now. We especially love the elaborate, luxurious Amsale bridesmaid dresses in classic hues that are perfect for traditional weddings and bohemian frocks in pastel tones by Grace Loves Lace.
