The most bridal of all laces, Chantilly.  Corbin Gurkin Photography

Lace as we know it evokes images of woven florals and scalloped edges on flounced skirts and collars. Though these time-honored looks will always be with us, lately we’re seeing new spins on the use of lace in bridal wear. Not only are the traditionals like Alencon and Chantilly now used in cutting edge ways, new inventions in knit and revivals in cotton and crocheted laces are showing up. Some of it is being used discreetly on no more than a sleeve or yoke while the high drama of donning all over lace from collar to hemline is chic as well.

Doilies?  Yup, these crocheted doilies pieced together make a gorgeous fabric for dress up.  Backing it with green sure makes the lace pop!
