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

Under the Stars
Allison and Brad were married off the coast of Santa Barbara, and planned a myriad of personalized touches for their wedding. After the outdoor ceremony guests were invited to take festive pictures in a photo booth as they sipped the wedding's signature drink, Limoncello. After dining under the stars, the couple served up a selection of sweets that included single-servings of strawberry shortcakes, cupcakes and pastries. See their wedding at Carats & Cake.
