At Venus Bridal, obviously we love keeping up to date with emerging new trends in bridal fashion. One theme that seems to remain perennially popular though, is anything but new – vintage style weddings are hotter than ever and they don’t show any signs of going anywhere soon. If you have your heart set on a classically styled big day, then chances are you might be swayed towards a stunning Venus lace wedding dress to make your own vintage bridal statement.
Lace wedding gowns are synonymous with classic and vintage wedding themes. Forget restrictive all over lace styles though, modern lace wedding gowns are all about delicate overlays and embellishments to create lighter, more feminine styles. The delicate nature of lace makes it instantly romantic and beautiful, so an obviously perfect choice for a bridal gown. Of course most modern brides are looking for that traditional romance but presented in a more contemporary style, which is why we have so many different beautiful lace wedding dresses to choose from; so that each Venus Bride can find her own perfect match.
Perhaps one of our most traditional lace designs is this full length dress from our Pallas Athena collection. This beautiful gown, available in both white and ivory, combines the delicacy of an illusion lace bodice with imperial satin and silky organza to form a full skirt flowing into a sweep train. The three quarter length sleeves and the stunning deep v-back is also accentuated with lace to add interest and detailing.
For a clean, contemporary take on a traditional lace wedding dress, have a look at this gorgeous A-line gown from our Angel & Tradition collection. The lace illusion neckline is continued to the back of the dress, offering elaborate detailing from the intricate lace appliqué, which contrasts wonderfully against the chic simplicity of the Florence organza and imperial satin that form the flattering skirt and court length train.
Our sweetheart illusion lace gown is a fantastic option for the bride who wants to make a contemporary statement but with a vintage vibe. It’s part of our signature Venus collection and features elegant cap sleeves with a fitted beaded waist flowing into a detailed flared skirt. Flattering, stylish and wonderfully feminine, this glorious gown could be exactly the lace look you’ve been dreaming of.
Fuller figured brides to be shouldn’t assume they have to avoid lace detailing either – in fact, the lace wedding dresses in our Venus Woman collection are specifically designed to accentuate and flatter your curves. This lace and tulle a-line gown combines a wide illusion lace neckline and shoulders with a beaded empire waist. The shape is incredibly flattering and the lace appliqué continuing down through the full skirt adds stylish vintage detail and interest.
