It has lace appliques. Which is sufficient I guess, but since I have this weird craving for head to toe lace, I’m not completely satisfied.
To make up for it, I added lace to my hair flower, I’m buying a lace bolero, and I might add lace to the sash I’m having made for around my waist.
I can’t really put lace into my jewelry, I don’t think that would look very nice. But I could get shoes with lace on them somehow. Any more suggestions?

My dress is Head to toe lace with pearls and crystals to really give it that WOW factor. I hated it on the hanger but it is AMAZING on me. I’m wearing a satin sash, white, around my waist, the bow in the back and a nice sized broach in the center of it. We are making it a theme that all women in the wedding wear a broach somewhere. I’m excited. It’s such a classy, Jackie O. meets Audrey Hepburn wedding! And to think I wanted to be a princess and have lots of pinks and bright hues and now it’s totally opposite of that idea.

I don’t like her bolero though! And the sash is going to be changed to a light beige color.

i think it will be very lacey with all those things you said you’re adding! what about a veil? that’s the only other thing i can think of.

I want the same thing @nlmiele! My dress is all tulle, doesn’t even have lace applique. I thought of adding a lace hem to the bottom but people weren’t crazy about that idea since the dress already has too much embroidery detail going on. I’m getting a lace-edge mantilla made, at least that’ll give an all around lacy effect in the photos, and in the back since it will just go past the hem of my dress.

Ms. Brew — I LOVE the first dress you posted from Nordstrom! I really hope it is still around later because I totally want it to be my rehearsal dress now.
Nliemle — I would just be careful that, in your drive for head to toe lace, you don’t overaccessorize. If you wouldn’t wear it anyway, I wouldn’t add it just to have lace, I guess. I think that if you put lace everywhere possible, it could end up looking sort of like a caricature of a bride. Your dress is already beautiful!

@mrs.lorson: The description of you wedding sounds just like mine! I’m having all of the girls wear broaches and there are broaches on our bouquets also. I’d love to see pictures of how yours turned out please! [email protected]
