You’d have to be living under a rock not to notice that lace is everywhere in the land of weddings at the moment (unless you are just not interested in anything to do with weddings I suppose, or you’re so traumatised by the experience of planning your own wedding that you are now keeping eyes and ears firmly shut against the current trends). Lucky for me I love this fashion, and the underlying theme of bohemia. In fact, I would have really struggled if I’d had to plan a wedding even five years ago when it was all stiff, crisp white.
So, let’s get on to the good stuff, the pictures!
Now, for some Australian designers that specialise in lace? Well, you can’t go past the amazing Gwendolynne from Melbourne. Dresses are custom made for the client, and as a result aren’t cheap ($4,000-$10,000). In an ideal world (if I didn’t have two boys, wasn’t on maternity leave, and didn’t have any qualms about spending that much money on a dress I would wear for ONE DAY when there are starving children in the world. And while I’m on the subject- have I mentioned lately that the latest figures show that the average wedding costs 54 THOUSAND dollars in Australia? Ridiculous!). Um… where was I? Oh yes, in an ideal world I would have one of Gwendolynne’s dresses, so I am going to keep an eye out for her once a year sales or on Still White (actually, excuse me while I go check now… update: nope).
Another option is Grace Loves Lace, who does gorgeous bohemain gowns that reference a sweeter time.
I can see these beautiful bohemian lace dresses teamed with soft, wispy hair, and soft, wispy bridesmaid dresses. And of course lovely wildflower bouquets and bright coloured shoes.
Now, to narrow it down to just one dress…
