Trend We Love: Lace Wedding Details

Ever since Kate Middleton's Alexander McQueen dresslace wedding gowns have been extremely popular. And while we love them, lace can also add a romantic feel to decorations, flowers, cakes, and so much more. Plus, this fabric can easily be adapted to fit any color scheme or season. Here are some of our favorite ways to add lace to everything but the gown.


Your baker can create a lace-like effect on your cake by using intricate fondant cut-outs or tiers:

Lace highlights the rustic and romantic feel.

The lace wrapped around this bride's bouquet is actually from her aunt's wedding gown and fabric from her grandparents. She wanted to honor the members of her family that could not be there with her — love this idea!
