Q - I love lace and want to incorporate it into my gown. Do you have any suggestions of how I can do this without making the design look old-fashioned?
"There are several ways you can incorporate lace into your gown without making it look old-fashioned. Take it to a specialist tailor who can create a bespoke lace overlay that attaches to the dress. Not only will it look beautiful but it will also give it a classy look which is very on-trend at the moment. You can even have it made in a different colour if you’d like to add a modern touch. Keep in mind that you’ll have to decide where you want the lace to sit on the dress and how far down you want it to go in advance.
"If this sounds too daunting, then there are plenty of lace capes that you can wear over the top of your dress. This will give you the option to create two different looks for the ceremony and reception. You can also have matching lace on your veil and request for a spare piece to be wrapped around your bouquet."
