Doily Inspired Wedding Gowns

Posted on | March 20, 2009 | 8 Comments

I never really write about wedding gowns. But I came across these three and was enamored by the fabric. I didn’t really care that they happen to be wedding dresses. I’ve been eyeing crochet more and more and wondering if it’s a vintage style that’s being revived? The dress above is by Lela Rose. The fabric is gorgeous. Below are two close up shots of dresses from J.Crew. I didn’t share the zoomed out shots because the models looked really depressed and sad. The flowers aren’t crocheted by they do have a handmade doily quality. Really pretty.

    I'm usually very blah about wedding gowns because they all seem so similar (and not anything I ever see myself in) but I've been loving these old fashioned doily options too! They have a great vintage feel.

    Hi here – all three are very beautiful. I’m getting married next year and am really interested in finding the Lela Rose dress – do you know what its name is? Thank you!
