The love story between lace and wedding dresses 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 lace gown is always charming. Being such a romantic fabric, one type just isn’t enough! Let’s break down what makes each of these laces so unique.
The most popular type of lace 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. Our Aria dress, as pictured above combines delicate detail, with its soft tulle over frosted Chantilly lace (style #2172)while the mermaid silhouette helps create a sultry shape.
Around since the 16th century, it’s hard not to fall in love with this delicate French fabric with its dreamy floral pattern. It is often used to create glittering beaded appliqués. The romantic and figure-flattering Allison is the perfect example (style #2188) The high-hip mermaid is covered in frosted, Alençon lace from the lovely sweetheart bodice down to the wide, scalloped hemline.
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 centre stage on the Alexandria dress (#1046) The all-over lace helps to accentuate the soft, fit-to-flare shape and luxe long sleeves.
Giving the appearance of a 3-D texture, embroidered lace is the perfect compliment to illusion features on a dress. Brinkley’s sleek and sophisticated shape is accented by delicate pearl and crystal beaded, embroidered lace appliqués (#2308). With an illusion neckline, sheer, detachable sleeves, and a dainty bow, it’s the perfect blend of feminine and chic!
