Guipure and lace dresses are an excellent choice for a wedding dress, because this fabric expresses femininity and fragility, which fits perfectly into the image of the bride.
Initially, guipure appeared in Italy in the 16th century and mainly the pattern consisted of small twigs and leaves. Then this material was quite hard, but today everything has changed, and guipure, while maintaining its strength, has become softer and more pleasant to the touch.
Styles of guipure wedding dresses
White guipure dresses can be of different styles, but, as a rule, fashion designers do not dress the wedding dress completely in guipure, but highlight either the upper or lower part with this material.
Beautiful guipure dresses contain a moderate amount of lace pattern, because otherwise the model looks overly decorated.
Since this material can both decorate an outfit and disfigure it, white guipure dresses, as a rule, have a laconic basis — a corset and a straight skirt with or without a train. So that the skirt does not look simple, it is decorated with a belt with stones, and guipure with a moderate pattern is sewn on top. The larger the pattern, the greater the distance should be between flowers and leaves.
A white dress made of guipure can also have a puffy skirt with an abundance of ruffles, in which case the guipure is patterned into the corset. At the same time, it can be decorated with rhinestones, but care must be taken that the decor is not excessive.
Simple silhouettes of wedding dresses can be with guipure on the back — in this case, it would be an original step to make a lace veil, as well as decorate shoes with this material.
Since guipure sometimes evokes retro style associations, in the style of the dress you can use the cut that was in vogue in the 20s of the last century: sleeves with flounces, a closed neckline with a brooch and a long straight skirt. This version of the wedding dress is suitable for those who appreciate traditions and love to embody them in modern times.
