Even in Western society today, we continue to hold this tradition in high esteem, because white lace is synonymous with purity, innocence and new beginnings. Rare is the actual virgin bride, but white lace for the bride? Absolutely. For some, even for weddings one, two, and three. The point is no longer the acknowledgment of virginity and purity, but the purity of a new beginning in a woman’s life with a new partner. All that implied with a bit of white lace.

Which Lace Do You Love?
There are many traditional lace designs or contemporary options to choose from. Which style suits your skin type and desire? Learn about different styles of lace from the following informative post:
- Chantilly or Galloon Lace: Possibly the best known type of lace is very fine and delicate and is made on a lightweight hexagonal mesh background. The motifs are sometimes outlined in a heavier silky thread or exhibit shading effects. Chantilly laces normally have doubles scalloped edges. Kate Middelton’s royal wedding dress was made of a type of Chantilly lace.
- Beaded Lace:Especially popular in the last 12 months, the type of lace is embellished with beads, crystals and sequins to produce a slightly antique look. They often have a scalloped edge.
- Corded Lace: These laces are elegant and originally were made exclusively in Northern France. Also known as Alencon lace, they are formed by outlining areas in the lace using a heavier thread or cord, giving these laces a three dimensional look. They are generally fine, light and floaty and make beautiful wedding dresses.
- Guipure Lace: This lace always has a continuous motif, which creates a denser pattern than with other laces. It is normally quite a firm feeling lace and commonly contains a floral or geometric design. One of the earliest types of lace, it is also sometimes known as Venetian Lace.
