Credit: DSVisualsLocal dress maker, Felicity Westmacott, reveals how you can incorporate lace into your dress.
- "Lace is a great way of adding detail and interest to your dress. There are lots of different types, so find a style you adore and make sure it flatters your figure.
- Chantilly lace is perfect if you want a head-to-toe look. It's delicate and isn't too over-powering.
- A shrug, bolero or lace-edged cape will add coverage and is ideal for cooler evenings or more modest ceremonies.
- Most lace comes with a scalloped edge, which can be used to soften the hem or neckline of a dress.
- Corded lace sewn on to the skirt or bodice will give your gown a bit of texture and definition.
- Illusion bodices are made from skin-tone tulle with chunky guipure lace sewn on. This will create a vintage yet modern feel.
- The open and low back gowns can be filled with an all-over-lace or scrolling motifs.
- Coloured versions are great if you don't want to wear all white.
- Add beads, sequins or diamanté stones."
