Flower Power: Why Floral Lace is Still Winning at Weddings!
Lace wedding dresses are still the most popular choice for the modern bride who still relishes the attraction of this delicate and romantic fabric. Though there are so many lace designs available, floral lace still dominates. This relationship between weddings, flowers and lace, cemented into place by Queen Victoria's beautiful lace trimmed dress and veil with a garland of blossoms, still endures.
Flowers in wedding lace can be featured in so many different ways, from the woven floral motifs in Chantilly to the modern 3D flower embellished lace designs. Read on for some of the best examples of floral lace across a diverse range of lace categories.
Modern Floral Laser Lace, a relatively recent style, allows extremely striking patterns to be made using fabrics that are laser cut into various shapes and then sewn onto different fabrics to embellish their design. These can either stand proud of the base tulle or be sewn flat onto it. Catalina is a show stopping example...
Guipure Lace is one of the most elegant of all lace qualities. The lace is made up of a continuous motif, which creates a denser, more raised pattern than other qualities, and often contains a floral design. We love Emma lace available in white and ivory.
Chantilly Lace is a very fine and delicate lace with a soft handle. The floral motifs are sometimes outlined in a heavier silky thread or exhibit shading effects and it normally has doubled scalloped edges. We love how the Chantilly weave creates shading on the flowers of Chantilly lace Harper.
Embroidered Laces typically use a tulle backing, on to which is embroidered first a decorative pattern which can then be embellished with cording or beads and sequins. We love floaty light unembellished embroidery lace Fontaine available in thee colours and Tabitha is a fabulous example of a lace with beaded flowers.
