Guipure wedding dresses

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.
