Here are a few of our favourites to show you how to wear the look…
Perfectly pulled in
This ivory Anna Sorrano dress is a great example of how figure enhancing lace-up wedding dresses can be. The chic lacing, combined with the neatly pleated satin bodice, make this a super flattering style!
Extra special details
At the front the bodice is decorated with floral embellished lace appliqués, while the metallic feature lace adds an extra special element to the intricate detailing.
A sweeping statement
The floor-length, A-line skirt is a masterpiece of sweeping satin and the smart ruching is very flattering across the hips and tummy area. Accessorise this look with our classic Deco comb and our glittering Estella belt, to highlight your neat waist. Our Langley veil, with its sprinkle of diamantés, has just the right amount of subtle sparkle to finish the look.
A modern twist
Turn around and you’ll not only reveal the chic satin lacing but also the sumptuous train, ending in more gorgeous lace appliqués. It’s a beautiful modern twist to this classic design. And if you like the stylish ruching here you might also like our Felicia, Venus and Addison gowns.
Figure-hugging and fabulous
Luscious lacing is equally at home on a modern vintage style, as you can see here on this cute vintage number. Our Tamsin dress is a sassy ballerina-length style that’s all about having fun!
At the back you can see how the lacing pulls in the beautiful bodice to create the perfect waistline. The Chantilly lace and the sparkly clusters of beads are just the icing on a very pretty cake!
A luxury feel
The full silhouette is all about fun 1950s’ romance. There’s also a Chantilly lace under layer for an even more luxurious feel. Wear this with our 125 underskirt to give the fabulous skirt more bounce and our Nova belt to really draw attention to that neat waistline!
Short and stylish
If you’re a fan of shorter styles you’ll also love our gorgeous Eva dress with it chic illusion neckline. And the best part? With both of these short and sweet styles you can pick out a pair of absolutely fabulous shoes, knowing they’ll be on display all day long!
A modern lace-up
Lace-up wedding dresses are such a versatile look, as you can see here with our super modern Dolce gown. The clean-cut silhouette and Mikado fabric are all pulled in perfectly by the stylish lacing.
Sleek and unique
The front of this dress couldn’t be sleeker. It’s perfect for showing off your curves while emphasising the waist. Our glittering Estella belt combined with our simple Loulou veil, edged in satin ribbon, will help finish the look off.
A shapely silhouette
The clever lacing and the fishtail silhouette here work together to help create a dream hourglass figure. The vertical, princess-cut seams also help to elongate the body. Did you know, the luxurious Mikado fabric has been bagged out at the hem with a two inch horse hair trim so it holds its shape? For even more volume you can wear this with our 190 underskirt too.
All in the details
And finally, the sweeping statement of the train is what your guests will remember as you glide down that aisle. And while they might not notice all the other clever little design details, you’ll know they’re working hard to keep you looking absolutely gorgeous all day long!
