If I’m wearing a lace beaded wedding gown, would lace bridesmaids dresses look too busy, or weird if the laces don’t match?
Also, are lace bridesmaids dresses typically seen as for rustic weddings? Most inspiration I see of lace dresses are for outdoor rustic weddings. Mines going to be a traditional church wedding, guys wearing black vera Wang tuxes so will that not match the lace look??

I can’t help with the matching part. I’m terrible at that! But, just to reassure you that lace doesn’t have to equal rustic, my BMs are wearing lace dresses for my rather formal wedding. We are getting married in a historic building. Groom, GMs, and dads in tuxes. I think it just depends on the style of the dress. Ours are definitely more formal than a rustic, casual lace dress. If you want lace, go for it! Hope that helps ease your mind.

I don’t thin lace necessarily means rustic! I think it really depends on the type of lace, style of dress, etc. I considered using a Mori Lee lace long bridesmaid dress, but my Maid/Matron of Honor didn’t care for lace, so we picked another dress.
But nothing about this dress:
says rustic to me! I think if you went for long instead of short, then it definitely wouldn’t feel rustic.

I agree with pp’s. Lace can be formal, but I think a long dress is better than a short one. I wouldn’t worry about clashing between the patterns on their dresses and yours, lace is subtle enough that it won’t matter.

Love lace, also more rewearable for bms

I love lace, it’s classic! It goes with formal or rustic (in my opinion).

I think it would look fine … here is a dress from alfred angelo I love but it costs more than I want the girls to pay (I think it’s around $175ish) but it’s not rustic at all and comes in all colors or in long

I have had this struggle as well…my dress is also lace, and I love some of the lace bridesmaid’s dresses that are out there right now, but I was worried about it not matching or just being too much to look at. I think it could be beautiful, but I’ve decided against it. I’m making my dress though, so I might dye some of the leftover lace trim to match their dresses and just add a lace hemline to theirs so that it isn’t too much but still ties in with my dress…but I’ll have to see how much time I have left once I’m done with mine. 🙂 And I definitely don’t think lace necessarily has to go with rustic weddings, especially if it’s beaded lace…my wedding will be fairly formal and I think the lace will still tie in perfectly. 🙂 Good luck on your decision!!

I saw an elegant church wedding where the bride wore a ruffled lace dress and her bridesmaids wore lace topped dresses. It was very beautiful and not too much. I will say all of them stuck to simple updos and smaller jewelry with classic bouquets.
I wore lace but my Maid/Matron of Honor wore a very simple old hollywood glam style dress and it looked lovely.

You don’t have to have them in the same fabric as you. My wedding was in a church. I had a lace gown and the girls wore satin. It looked nice together.

my Bridesmaid or Best Man are wearing all lace and my wedding is not outdoors or rustic.
