Can’t get enough of vintage lace wedding gowns

What is it about lace that evokes thoughts of romance and nostalgia for eras long past? Here at Parkers, we spend a lot of time up close and personal with many different fabrics and in the world of wedding gowns, that means a lot of tulle, satin, and lace. Specializing in caring for and preserving wedding gowns means we see it all and the greatest of these, in our humble opinion, is lace.

Because, seriously, is there anything as wonderfully feminine and as simply lovely as lace?

Every gown we see come through our doors is stunning in its own right; let’s start with that. But truly, we have a penchant for the delicacy of lace. The simplest of designs executed in lace become elegant, romantic, and soft. You can choose to make the sleeves long or short, have an open back or a high neck – to us it doesn’t matter! We love the vintage nod lace automatically gives a gown and how it can bring your mind back to any number of decades and trends. It’s an incredibly versatile fabric, fit for everybody, from the bohemian bride to the traditionalist, turn-of-the-century one.

As we all know, pictures speak a thousand words and more, so we’ve rounded up some of our favourite styles for you to look through below. As you will see, this is a versatile fabric, switching breathlessly from casual to formal and is at once timeless and current.

Take a look at these breathtaking gowns, and try to tell us that you didn’t swoon a little bit!
