Sexy Wedding of Summer

The cut

On the recent catwalks, many popular styles of bespoke bridal gowns utilise a very different “avant garde” cut than traditional dresses. Whether it is a plunging neckline or shoulders cut in an asymmetrical fashion, there are myriad ways to use the cut of the dress to stunning effect. Another trending look at the moment is the scoop-backed dress, which drops dramatically yet softly down the bride’s back and loops back up over her shoulders. A further take on this is the one-shoulder dress, which scoops down the back and drapes up and back over the front, making it both elegant and daring.

The length

While it is easier to get away with shorter dresses in the summertime, this year, many styles of bespoke bridal gowns are taking up the length to add a touch of sex appeal for the adventurous bride. With traditional bodices but above the knee lengths, the shorter styles really draw attention to the legs while staying subdued enough to satisfy your granny. Conversely, longer, flowing skirts are being paired with lower cut tops or lacy bodices, to help to balance out the risqué with traditional.

The use of lace

As one of the most traditional accessories and materials used in bespoke bridal gowns and even off-the-rack dresses, it is no wonder that lace features highly when designing a more risqué wedding dress. By enabling you to both cover up and show off some skin, a dress can give the illusion of being low cut, cut out or as traditional as you want – with the addition of clever lace, you’ll be tempting but not trampy. A lace bodice fitted to the bride’s body can be paired with a long, flowing skirt and be both alluring and appropriate for a daytime wedding. It’s a careful balance that can be played around with at the time of getting your dress designed. The key is to not be afraid to embrace the lace!

Types Of Lace Wedding Dresses

Lace appliqué

Here the decorative lace detail is sewn to the base fabric such as netting or tulle. This style is an excellent way of incorporating the romance of the lace into your wedding day look. The appliqué can be over the bridal gown or be concentrated on other areas such as skirt, neckline, or bodice.

Long lace sleeves

They are great in hiding the tops of arms thus ideal for those who aren’t comfortable with the look of their arms. To be able to pull off great moves on the dance floor, you should ensure that the lace isn’t too restrictive. As rule of thumb you should go for a lace fabric that provides you with a bit of stretch.

Lace overlays

These are outfits that have a top layer of lace on them. While most of the layers are permanent, there are some that are removable thus you are able to transform your wedding outfit the way you want.

How to clean your lace dress

Lace tends to stain easily especially when it’s cleaned the wrong way. Due to this, it’s paramount that you learn how to properly clean your lace outfit. If you aren’t planning of taking it to a professional dry cleaner to clean it for you, you should follow these steps to give your outfit a great look:

You should start by soaking the outfit in warm water that contains one full cup of detergent bleach. You should let the dress soak until the water cools. You should drain the cold water and refill the tub with warm water. You should continue this process of replacing the water for about 24 hours.

When all the dirt has come off you should rinse your dress then place a soft towel on it. To press out all the water you should carefully roll up the towel.
