When using lace in a bridal gown, it is so important to know how different kinds of lace look, feel and move.
Venetian lace is sometimes called Guipure lace. It is stiff and firm, with motif patterns connected by plaits or bars instead of the usual netting or mesh. Without mesh, the designs on Venetian lace have an elegance that is striking.
Embroidered lace usually has delicate patterns stitched into an applique on an illusion base. Embroidered lace can often be embellished with beading, crystals or sequins for more dimension. More embellishments added to embroidered lace can create a dazzling effect for a bold bride.
Chantilly lace is famous for the wondrous amount of detail contained in its patterns. The pattern is outlined in a flat, untwisted strand called a cordonnet. Chantilly lace is lightweight with beautifully scalloped edges and often lends itself well to more vintage dress designs.
This type of lace has its origins in Alençon, France. It is a type of needlepoint lace, meaning that it is created by using a needle and thread to stitch up hundreds of small stitches to form the lace itself, often showcasing floral designs on netting or sheer backgrounds. Typically, the designs on this fine lace are outlined using a heavier thread. The designs offer a romantic, classic appearance that can be simply breathtaking.
