A classic element of bridal design, in recent years lace has become a versatile detail that works just as beautifully on a boho wedding dress as it does a traditional look. The modern lace wedding dress can be anything from a classic, floral-inspired look to a contemporary geometric dream, giving lace a fresh update and ensuring it’s going to be around in bridal fashion for years to come. Something about the delicate patterns of lace just adds the perfect touch of grace and detail to a dress. If you’re as obsessed with the elegance of lace as we are, take a look at a few of our favorite lace wedding dresses:

Chic and modern, the bodice of this Wtoo bridal gown is made entirely of illusion lace. The vintage-inspired high neck and long sleeves are given a modern update with the lace’s sheer quality, which lets the gorgeous lines of the pattern stand out even more. The intricate lace is balanced out in with a tiered skirt, giving the gown beautiful movement as you walk.
Love lace, but only want a subtle touch of it? This Jenny Yoo dress keeps all the lace on the bodice, giving an intricate look up top that pairs beautifully with the chic, flowing skirt on the bottom. The lace bodice overlays sheer illusion mesh, giving the tiny, vine-like lace the illusion of floating for a stunning bohemian elegance. The sheer details and plunging neckline give this otherwise traditional A-line dress a gorgeous hint of modernity.
For brides who love intricate detail, this multi-dimensional, all-over lace and applique fit and flare dress from Made With Love is perfect. A blend of tiny, intricately woven lace and bold applique flowers creates a stunning floral-inspired design. Corset boning on the bodice adds structure and directional movement to the dress, giving it even more detail and visual interest—the perfect gown for detail-obsessed brides.
If you’re looking for lace but aren’t too crazy about florals, you’ll love this geometric, classic lace sheath. The organic edged neckline creates a stunning shape without interrupting the overall v-neck, and the gorgeous edge is mirrored in the hem. The slightly scalloped look and delicate threads holding the lace together give this dress an ethereal, vintage-inspired elegance perfect for brides seeking a traditional yet unique wedding dress.
