Notice Kate's long lace sleeves at PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com, a website that connects buyers and sellers of new, sample and used wedding dresses. Here are a few of the lace wedding gowns they now are advertising:
I remember my own white lace wedding dress from 32 years ago. When I shopped for a wedding dress, I thought I knew what I wanted until my mother and aunt took me wedding dress shopping one day. "Try this one on," they both suggested, pointing to a very lacy and ruffles dress. It wasn't the style I was searching for, but I tried it on anyway to please them. I fell in love with it. Covered with lace and layers of ruffles on the bottom and sides in the back, the wedding dress was made with a high neckline and long lace sleeves, quite the old-fashioned look.
My daughter, Chrissie, is getting married in July. She tried my old-fashioned lace wedding dress on before she chose her own design. The dress has been preserved in a large box for all these years and is in good condition. She asked my opinion about an idea she had for using my wedding dress. Of course, I was delighted. The vintage remake looks unique with its something-old-something-new design. Follow Southwest Cottage Designs June and July series of articles to see the lovely vintage wedding dress remake photos - after the wedding, of course. Remember to enter the wedding ring quilt giveaway!
A 2011 trend is to decorate your home with what you wear. Ways to decorate with lace inside and outside the home:
- Decorate accent tables with lace. Cut the size of lace to fit your table, and take the measurements to a glass company to have a glass cut for the table.
- Decorate your walls with trendy lace...
