I’ll be the first to admit that I love love love lace! In the past few years this frilly fabric has been at the forefront of fashion. You can find it on everything from shirts, dresses, and even tights. Lace is a very romantic, elegant, and ladylike material. Hence why I think it can transition perfectly into your wedding. Now you may be thinking that lace and weddings is obvious. However, I’m not just talking a lace wedding dress, think décor, invitations, cake, and more! Lace is no longer the matronly and overly traditional fabric it used to be. Below I have gathered modern and creative lacy ideas that frill me! Get inspired with me and let the matrimonial elegance blossom.

Incorporate lace in an unexpected way on your invitations. You don’t have to go with the traditional white lace or conventional all over pattern. Have a hint of a lace print in a surprising color like this invitation from Wedding Paper Divas . They are one of the wedding invitation vendors we love working with in Philadelphia!

Laser cut lace can also make for an elegant and unusual wedding invitation! It gives the invite a romantic edge.

Another trend in lace that I find elegant and delicate is a lace wedding cake. A frilly pattern on your wedding cake is fun yet still sophisticated. A way to make a lacy cake even more fun? Use the same pattern as your lace wedding dress!

Perhaps you only view lace as being too frou frou? Well this isn’t the case! Make the fabric a little more country with some burlap! Who would have thought lace and burlap were the perfect pair! ( almost as perfect as you and your future “to be”) You can combine these two fabrics as a table runner to create an earthy chic look. They even look beautiful wrapped around a candle or gracing your invitations!

Colorful, unexpected, and edible lace…Hopefully all of these creative ideas have inspired you, just as much as they inspired me! With so many possibilities, you no longer have to view lace as matronly and traditional. Brides with different styles can easily incorporate my favorite fabric without straying from their personalities.
