Once cherished as the ultimate wedding fabric because of its delicacy, scarcity and cost, lace is now the realm of the more traditional brides. Symbolizing fragility and timelessness, nothing communicates tradition more than lace.
There are numerous varieties of lace, each with its own weave and look. I love the delicacy of Chantilly lace and the elaborateness of Alencon or Venise.
I recommend lace for morning or day weddings as it adds texture and adornment without the glitz of beading or shine. Lace can also be coupled with fabrics such as silk taffeta or satin to provide an element of tradition but not in an overwhelming way. - XO, Vera
A Vogue Bride's Destination Wedding
Vogue Special Events Associate, Pheobe Papadopoulos, wore a gorgeous Vera Wang dress to her wedding, which took place in Mykonos, Greece. The dazzling blue water and picturesque white clay buildings made for lovely photos while the traditional Greek ceremony and hours of dancing that followed made for an unforgettable event. See their wedding pictures on Vera Unveiled.
