Incorporating Lace Into Your Wedding
The lace provides feminine softness with a vintage feel for some magazine-worthy wedding photos. It’s time to really embrace the theme. We’ve come up with killer ways for incorporating lace into your wedding that keeps it relevant and interesting.
1. Lace Parasols for the Bridesmaids
Rather than giving every bridesmaid her own bouquet to hold as she walks down the aisle, give them lace parasols instead. Once the ceremony is over, place them strategically around the wedding reception for added decor.
2. Lace Bunting
No need to keep the walls bare. String lace bunting banners on every wall or from ceiling joists. If you’re having an outdoor wedding, you can even string them from tree branches.
3. Hanging Lace
If you have a variety of lacy fabrics, cut circles from them and stick them in embroidery hoops. Hang them from trees or walls for a unique decoration. This makes for a fun weekend craft in the days leading up to the wedding.
4. Lace Table Runners
Of course, the wedding reception tables are an easy place to add some lace, like these lace table runners. It looks particularly beautiful with the raw wood table. Simple, yet stylish.
5. Lace Candle Holders
Lighting can add a romantic glow to every wedding reception table. Add an elegant touch by adding candles in glass candle holders decorated with lace.
6. Lace Backdrop
Rather than bolts of lace fabric, reach for lace ribbon instead. If you’ve found a bunch of different kinds of ribbon, tie each one to a pole, rope or stick to make an improvised lace backdrop. Use this for the ceremony or as a cool backdrop for a wedding reception photo booth.
7. Lace Wedding Cake
Don’t forget about your wedding cake! Even the highlight of all wedding desserts can rock some lace–but this time, it’s edible. Show your cake decorator some lace wedding cake inspiration for the perfect end to the reception.
8. Lace Favor Boxes
At the end of the night, send guests home with a fun wedding favor. Place the wedding favors in these lace favor boxes to match your wedding theme.
